A quick update for everyone....
I had noticed that the node in my neck was swollen after my first treatment of Brentuximab. I was alarmed, but told that maybe it was just inflammation from the medicine working. When it did not go down after the second treatment, we called my doctor in Nashville and he wanted to see us right away.
They did a PET scan on Monday and found that the tumors have actually grown by 30%. Bretuximab is obviously not working and we need to change our course of action.
Needless to say, this is not the news we were hoping for. In two weeks I will start ICE chemo. Hopefully we can get a response from this drug.
Pray for us as we trek onward. I just keep wondering when this thing is going to turn around! I hate so much that we have to keep delivering bad news.
It has never been more clear to me now that the only way I will have freedom from this disease in this life is if God chooses to miraculously heal me. Please pray for a miracle. I believe He is more than capable of it!
Thanks for your prayers.
