April 25,2008 goes to ER with blood clots in legs, dx with DVT due to lung cancer must have daily shots of Lovenox the rest of his life.. pills didn't work. poor guy!
April 26,2008 tests show mets in liver and bones.
May 27, 2008 starts chemo taxol/carbol..cancer pain decreases by 80% after first round.
June 11,2008 second round of chemo, seems to tolerate well he is getting stronger and less pain and gaining weight fast.
June 25, 2008 CT scan showed 50% shrinkage after second round of chemo!
July 2, 2008 third round of chemo, still doing great and is now riding his Harley and looking great. gained back 20 pounds.
July 21, 2008 forth round of Chemo, seems to have wiped him out more than the other times.
Aug.13, 2008 Hubby goes in for a MRI because of headaches, test showed 2 small brain mets. chemo put on hold for radiation.
Aug.15, 2008 The radiation has started, he goes for a total of 10 treatments. the Doctor feels that this is just a bump in the road and he will do just fine.
Aug. 26, 2008 Hubby has had a total of 8 treatments now and is doing very well, he is back riding his Harley once again.
Aug. 28, 2008 All done with the radition and will start back on Chemo Sept. 12 th... Still doing great.
Sept. 29, 2008 Last round of the chemo! so now a CT scan and MRI will be next to see where he stands.
Oct... CT scan showed tumors have gotten bigger, MRI showed brain mets are stable. He went into the hospital for infection and seems to be fading away, he has taken a fast turn downhill. Doctor wants to try a different chemo drug. Hubby isn't interested at this point, we all are encouraging him to change his mind.
Oct. 27,2008..Hubby decided to try the drug Alimta, this is his last and final treatment he said. we pray no bad side effects and can get more time. he is losing his weight and and is weak.
Dec. 15,2008.. Had a CT scan and after 2 rounds of Alimta all his tumors are stable. will continue on...
