Matthew & I saw Dr. Wexler this afternoon. The good news is there are NO new tumors.
But the rate of growth of what is existing is 25% which is too high for Matthew to remain on the current medication (clinical trial).
Sooo....Matthew begins a new treatment today which is in pill form that he will take everyday for 6 weeks which is when we will return to New York for scans. We will also see our oncologist in Knoxville, TN in two weeks.
There have been many positive results shown in studies about this new medicine that Matthew will be starting. If I could remember the name of it I would tell you but my brain has not been in top form recently! If you ask Matthew, he'll know! We are encouraged today about beginning this new medication.
We are leaving NY on the 9:20 pm flight and will be home hopefully by midnight. We are looking forward to being in Tennessee!!
Much love and blessings to you all,
