Testing and More Testing 3/19/18

Robbie had a long day of testing before he can start the clinical trial. They did some of the testing at the main MD Anderson campus and some of the testing was done at their research building. Wednesday he will have another lung biopsy. Robbie is so brave to go through that again. You would have to knock me out. He likes to see pictures of his lung on the large screen.

I included a picture of the study in case you want to look it up. Although we were told last week that it is a stage 2 study, it is a pilot study. We are nervous, but continue to pray for good results. They plan to start his treatment next Monday, if all the testing goes as planned this week. He will continue as long as the side effects are tolerable and it is helping. We still need to read more about it. Here is a link for more information from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where the study is being done. https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/clinical-trials/17-366

Lynn came down from Tulsa today and Ruth is flying down Wednesday. It is great to have family here this week. Robbie is happy to see his sisters!

Thank you for all your prayers and support.
