Keeping You in the Loop


Brian and I were talking the other day and realized we do a great job of informing people when things are crazy but forget to give an update when things are going well.

Here is the latest:

Brian finished his last round of the current immunotherapy he was on, Yervoy, on August 19th.  The last two treatments left Brian with no side effects.  Currently his labs look amazing, he is full of energy, and looks so great physically. (We won't mention my jealousy over his weight loss and healthy habits). We are all working and playing and enjoying normal life.  Brian will have scans on his body on September 14th then we will get the results with Dr. B. on September 20th.  If things are the same or smaller, we will scan again in a few months and do nothing else in the meantime. If things are new or bigger we will start on Obdivo, an immunotherapy Brian was on briefly before.  As we have explained before, immunotherapy needs time to work. We are hoping for the best and appreciate prayers for the 20th!

We love you all and are continue to feel grateful for our village of love. We are so so so thankful for the normalcy we have right now too. We don't want to jinx it, but it feels really good. Looking back on journal entries from this time last year, I seriously am so happy that is behind us and the weekly emergencies are a thing of the past! Phew!

Love you all!
