Just got back from San Antonio yesterday evening and the Dr. was happy with Gene's bloodwork and physical. They did a couple of extra tests on him then they gave him his five days of chemo pills and we were out of there. Didn't have to wait the four hours like we have been doing. He took his second dose of the pills here at home today, takes tomorrow and Mon. here and home and we will go back to SA on Mon. afternoon and go back to the clinic Tues. AM for the fifth dose of the med + the physical and blood work. Don't know if we have to wait the 4 hours and then they do more blood work, but seems like Gene said that's the deal now - wait 4 hours and then do tests on 5th day of meds only. Yeah, that's it. Anyhow, after the next cycle of meds, he will have a CT on 1/28 and we will go to SA on 2/1 to get the results to see if the meds are working. Will let you know something as soon as we know.
Hope everyone had a wonderful, meaningful Christmas and here's to a better 2008.
Sending our best your way,
Jamie Sue & Gene
