Patkid Posted November 10, 2005 Share Posted November 10, 2005 Well, once again, we received bad news. Doctor said Brian's liver enzymes are out of control. Based on that, the other labs and Brian's clinical presentation Doc said NO more Alimta. He said Brian's disease continues to progress rapidly. He is going to try to stop the progression w/ Navelbine and even tho Brian's nueropathy is very concerning he is going to give him a low dose of carboplatin w/ the Navelbine. Brian recived that today and will get it repeated for 2 more weeks. Then 1 week off. We are scheduled to see doc again on 12/8, but he told me to call him anytime. Brian has pain while swallowing now, but doc said the true concern is the liver tumor. It seems to be completely taking over and that is what is causing the abdominal pain that put him in the hospital a couple weeks ago. Doctor always told us that the liver tumor would be the worst of this journey for Brian. He was right. Brian is visibly going down hill. He has some perkier moments but over all the trend is downward. My heart is aching and I am scared silly. At least he got some IV decadron today and his nuelasta. That always gives him a boost. He is napping, but I bet we will have a nice evening. I am counting on it. Brian remains determined and optimistic. I will back him up relentlessly. Please continue prayer.
