Hawaii Dick Update

Well, Dick just finished his second round of chemo. After his first round of chemo, the Dr. advised that there had been a 35-40% shrinkage in the tumor. Seems like the chemo is working and those %'s sounded good to me. He has tolerated the chemo I think fairly well. Fatigue, flu-like symptoms, hair loss, etc. but his appetite is good and he is keeping his weight (and his spirits up). Scheduled for surgery at MD Anderson mid-September. Thanks for everyone's support and encouragement. Will keep you posted.

Aloha, Cheryl

Aloha there Cheryl;

Congrats on the OUTSTANDING news, :):):) So very happy for you and Dick. I also had squamous type, stage IIB, NSCLC. They took my left lung almost 2 & 1/2 years ago. Can't say it was a piece of cake :shock: but definitly survivable. All my best to you and Dick, let us know how the surgery goes.

God bless and be well
