Monday, Monday

We met with Dr. Jafari today to review Nick's lab results and overall condition. Dr. J was thrilled that Nick has not lost any weight in the past few weeks. He was worried that we would have to back off on the Xeloda dose this week so Nick could tolerate it better, but since he is still weighing in at 193.5, he can finish up this session on the highest dose possible. Nick's labs are also holding steady.

Nick whizzed through his IV treatment today at the clinic with Patsy and Ron by his side. Because of his reaction last week, they watched him closely and infused the Taxotere slowly in the beginning, but all went well, and by 4:30 or so he was home. He has 3 more days of taking the Xeloda and will start his 'week off' on Friday......But until then, we are killing cancer.
