Janet Update 24 Aug

Thanks for the many well wishes. Janet continues to improve and today the doctors said that the tumors are the “same kind” as from the beginning. So, great news in that it is possible to have a totally new kind of cancer appear. That is not good.

But this is “only” the same old cancer, but it seems to have adapted to resist the Abraxane (the Taxol type chemo that Janet had this year). This is very much like bacteria getting to be resistant to a particular antibiotic. Not good either, but much better than a whole new cancer.

Now they hint that she might get out of the hospital on Monday if all goes well.

Thanks again,

Dave & Janet
