More info...

Dr. Lin called and CEA count is up to 6. He did a blood test to see if a new drug would be helpful. Turns out that drug (don't remember the name) won't be helpful for Harv.

So, he'll start with Avastin (infused) and continue on the Xeloda in combination with that. And, HOPEFULLY it will make a difference and squash those suckers! If it doesn't make enough of a difference, we'll probably need to add something else.

Luckily, the Avastin is easier on his system than some other infused drugs.

Also, Dr. Lin said that there are some approved clinical trials out there for immunotherapy "stuff." Some of those trials have long waiting lists, but we can work with the current drugs while we wait.  

More information as we learn it.

Have a good week.
