stand4hope Posted April 22, 2005 Share Posted April 22, 2005 Hubby is still doing ok. He had a great weekend last weekend, but has been a little draggy this week. I'm glad tomorrow's Friday, so he can catch up on rest. We still think the Tarceva is working. On our onc visit last Friday, the onc said we would wait a while before doing new scans to see how it's working, and we would wait even longer before doing another PET. I think the insurance companies must be really picky about frequent PET scans since they are so expensive. I think this last one was about $3,500. The bad news is that our son has been in the hospital here in Indiana since Monday with serious pancreatitis. He will eventually be ok, but it's really bad this time. He's had it several times and each time it takes longer for his pancreas to heal. He's in a lot of pain and been pretty sick, but seemed a little better today and more responsive. He's starting to gripe, so I think that's a good sign. I doubt he will get out of there before the weekend at the earliest. Well, just thought I'd let you all know what's been going on at our house. I've been having long days and late nights, so I've been absent from the board more than usual. Everyone have a great weekend!
