My contact email is in my profile. Let me know what you think.


Would love to do a brunch or something. I don't eat out much. Wife is a great cook. PS there is always a option of a shoot and sandwiches. There is Sac Valley or Yolo Sportsman Club. I am a member at Yolo Sportsman Club.

Thanks

I know a couple of people that have had great results with Opdivo (sp?) so I hope you have similar luck!

Thanks for the update. Continued best wishes.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Update #2

Last week Monday I could hardly walk down the hallway of or modest house without losing my breath.

Got to the Kitchen Table to measure my O2. Not good. It was 79 and very slow recovery to 90. My at rest numbers lately has been 90 to 92.

I called the Oncologist’s Office for one of the side effects of the Immunotherapy drug OPDIVO was pneumonitis which may include shortness of breath. They got me an appointment to come in for an evaluation that afternoon. I also called the Pulmonologist office and the best they could do was a telephone appointment the next day.

Well the Oncologist said it was too soon for that side effect and they ordered a chest X-Ray. So off to the local Hospital for the X-Ray. Wife had to push m
e in a wheelchair. Walking was not doable.

Next day phone call meeting with Pulmonologist. He said there was an infection going on and a bit of Pneumonia. He asked me about the drug Zithromax and I said ten years ago Levaquin worked real good. On to a ten day regiment of Levaquin. He ordered me 24 hour oxygen also. 2 liters at rest 3 liters walking about. He also told me I will be off work for some time.

The Oncologist office called also to follow up regarding the X-Ray and I told them what my Pulmonologist has done and they were good with that.

So on to State Disability I go and probably COBRA for my medical coverage. Wife and youngest daughter will probably go on to Cover California (Obama Care).

A bit of a setback. But got to keep in mind that the Oncologist said my prognosis was good with a curative outcome.

Next infusion treatment is this Wednesday.

Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes.

Roy
