Dazed and Infused
Tina and I traveled to North Carolina and back yesterday for my appointment at Duke. They told us that the MRI shows that the tumor has shrunk by about 25%. This is great news.
I say I’m dazed because I have a lot of options from which to choose. In addition to the necessary evil (i.e., toxic chemo) I plan to pursue holistic strategies more diligently going forward. I just have to be careful about complementary and alternative medicines because they can be so good for the body on a cellular level that they could impede the chemo and help the cancer thrive. I just don’t want my treatment to be all poison. Unfortunately, no one can tell me with certainty what strategy is best. There are plenty of varying opinions out there. I have to go with my gut. (Since my appendix ruptured, maybe I should say, “go with my heart.”)
I am continuing with the Avastin and Irinotecan infusions. Since they seem to have done some good, it’s not unreasonable to assume (or hope) that they will continue to help.
Last weekend Tina and I had a yard sale and before getting rid of some old movies, we watched Phenomenon (1996, with John Travolta, Kyra Sedgwick, Forrest Whitaker, Robert Duvall). I do not have telekinesis or savant brilliance, but the movie definitely struck a chord. Might be worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
Awesome news Ken… this is great to hear!
Awesome. Keep on keepin on brother. HFF
This is great news! So happy for you!
This is the answer to the prayer literally thousands upon thousands have put in motion for you. Chemo may be poison, but it has poisoned the hell out a quarter of a monster. Keep doin’ whatcha doin’!!! Kitty

Congrats on the Avastin success, I had excellent results also with Avastin. I have added several supplements on the direction of my N.O. I had a 70% reduction after 3 treatments and continue to do treatments every 2 weeks.
