Almost Done!!!

Getting excited to be done with radiation and weekly chemo treatments next Wednesday the 28th of May!!  After that,  just two more chemo treatments on Jun 18th and July 9th.  Those will be a triple dose of the drugs John is currently getting. 

John will just drive to Santa Monica the night before, spend the night, get the treatments and drive home.

After that,  just PET scans every three months to make sure the tumor is totally gone.  

We can't thank everyone enough for all the help, visits, cards, and messages.  It's been a long haul again but we got through it again too!!  

We are looking forward to getting back to our normal lives, just in time to enjoy our lovely back yard and swimming pool for the summer!!  

Stay tuned, I will post some pictures soon!!  

Love,  Elaine & John

Great News Today!!!!

John is feeling great after hearing from his Dr. that the tumor has shrunk at least 30% of it's original size!!  There is no more pressure on his lung or esophagus so he is breathing and eating better so he naturally feels much better.

His eating habits are back to normal and he's gained a few little pounds which he desperately needs!! His spirits are high.

John had a scan today to get an accurate reading on the tumor so his radiation oncologist can target what is remaining of the tumor more accurately now that it has shrunk so much!!


Thanks for all you support!!  Love, Elaine & John
