Today's visit

Just met with Dr. Lin... not a ton of information to tell.

He's adjusted the dose of Oxaliplatin which will hopefully alleviate some of the side effects. He's adding Avastin this go round and we'll see where we are next time we're here.

Hopefully, we'll make some good progress so surgery can be done, but he said that even if Dr. Park thinks surgery is not an option, then we'll probably go with some form of radiation. He said that the goal is to convert these things in the liver into a non-active spot one way or another.

He said that the Avastin is used simply to target the tumors so the other drugs can just get in there and kill all those suckers!

I have dreams of quick, simple, painless treatment -- and for the most part, I don't think it's been so bad. But, I'm pretty ready for the treatment part to be over -- AND SUCCESSFUL.

Dr. Lin still thinks we're making progress so we'll keep on keepin' on.

Thank you for your prayers for our family.
