July 13, 2011 Update
Chris here with an update in regards to the previous update. Further results from the CT scan show that the cancer has spread to parts of the spine and brain. What this means is that the plan to start Topotecan and AVE0005 is on hold. Instead, radiation is set to start either Friday or Monday at the latest. The radiation will be for parts of the brain, and we are waiting to hear if the doctors will also be targeting the chest in their treatments. The treatments will be Monday through Friday for three weeks and then the doctors will regroup. Dad is feeling very tired and is sleeping as much as possible. We appreciate all of the support we have been receiving from all of you.
