Sorry it has been so long since I posted...With all that is going on I forgot to. My husband has been in treatment for 4 months with FOLFOX chemotherapy. It did not work at all, the cancer spread to his liver - 8 spots on his liver with the largest one 5.5cm in diameter - from May all tumors grew significantly. Also his cancer blood marker went from 16 to 65. He spleen is enlarged by 20% and his platelets are at 75 where it should be in the 100's. They took him off chemo for a month because they wanted his platelets to come back up, they never did. Now we are trying 5FU chemo, I hope it works. In the middle of all this my mom died from complications of recover from thyroid cancer surgery. She was 80 years old. Despite all of this, we are keeping faith in God and have a positive attitude that chemo will work this time...
