Hopes and doubts

It’s been awhile since our last post.

Since the last update we have discontinued the use of Vinblastine.  Jackie’s cancer just didn’t respond as dramatically as we hoped so we decided to give CCNU a try.  It wasn’t that Vinblastine wasn’t working.  It kept Jackie’s tumors from grow and {minimally} shrank them.  This is a good sign.  It means the cancer was held at bay and {perhaps} didn’t metastasize to other areas.  Jackie’s oncologist was hoping to find something that would actively shrink the tumors so we switched to CCNU.

Jackie is feeling low.  He doesn’t seem to be himself.
