SRS - Chapter 2

Since the last blog posting, two new lesions in the brain were discovered which further delays my access to the MEK clinical trial in which I am anxious to participate.Tomorrow I will have my second SRS treatment to "zap" the new brain lesions. The pain in the groin lymph node has steadily increased, so on August 23rd we began a series of 20 radiation treatments (five per week) to see if we can reduce its size and impact. It had restricted the blood flow into my right leg by about 50%. I'm hobbling about hoping that we can get eligible for the clinical trial.
As always, we are very grateful for the love, prayers, support, etc. we receive from many great friends and family members!
