RE: [MOL] Stereotactic Radiosurgery/June



Luiza,
Congratulations!  I'm so pleased to hear that things are looking up.  What a
relief to know that he is eligible for surgery.  I agree with you that it
seems like the more chemo the better but then again, I don't know very much.
I have heard about the pump where the chemo goes directly to the liver, that
makes alot of sense to me.  Unfortunately for my Mom, they consider that too
invasive for her but the chemo she is taking (Xeloda-pills) is keeping her
condition stable for the time being and that is better than the alternative.
Perhaps one day, her tumors will shrink significantly and she will be a
candidate for more aggressive therapy, I certainly hope & pray that is so.
May I ask how old your husband is?  Mom is 57.  I bet your husband is
relieved to hear this news about his future.  As far as the second opinion,
I would say that is a great idea, just in case.  I know it can get expensive
but I feel that a second opinion is a good investment and would be good for
your peace of mind too.  Of course I will continue to pray for you and
everyone else, God has given me the strength to be able to deal with this so
far and I couldn't have done it without him.  Thanks for writing back.

Your friend

Dusti
