For family and friends

Another long day in LA. We left the house around 10 am and got home around 8 pm. Adam's girlfriend Molly went with us and helped Adam to pass the time. The chemo cycle that Adam is on involves four different drugs. One drug is given on day 1 and 8, one on day 1 and 21, one on day 1 and one on day 28. It is all very confusing. The last time Adam was supposed to get two of the drugs his counts were really low so he couldn't do his normal schedule and his schedule got all messed up. The PET scan that he got last week showed that a few of the tumors in his torso are slightly smaller. The MRI showed that perhaps there was a new tumor in his neck and the brain tumor is definitely bigger. So today, they decided to stick with the chemo drugs that he did last month. Hopefully this will keep the tumors in his lymph nodes, spine and arm under control. The brain tumor is our biggest concern right now as it is growing dangerously close to the part of the brain that controls the motor skills on the left side of his body. Adam has some bad mouth sores and is having a lot of trouble eating. He got some new pain killers for his mouth and hopefully this will help him be able to eat more. Heaven knows he could use a little meat on his bones!
