Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you and yours. An update on James. We went to MD Anderson in Houston TX. James had a set back in September and we wasted no time getting there. After being there for three weeks, we came home with a new plan!
The Ifosfamide dose has doubled. It is given with albumin, mesna and prednisone. James looks and feels better than he has since this monster entered his life. The treatments are evry day for 7 days every two weeks. He gets to do the treatments out-patient as he wears a backpack with a pump for the mesna for the 24 hour dose. The actual chemo treatment takes about 4-5 hours with the pre-meds and ifos.
MD Anderson's sarcoma center is quite amazing and accomodating. If you are able to go to a hospital that has sacoma specialists, then PLEASE do so. Wishing everyone peaceful and heart warming holidays. I will keep you posted.
