April 5, 2022

The EBUS procedure mentioned in my last report was completed on March 9, 2022, with a follow up meeting with my Oncologist on March 29, 2022.  The results were not what we had hoped for.  The speculation was that the lymph nodes in my airways were aggravated due to some type of infection.  As it turns out, the spots on the scans were identified as malignant cancer growth.  As a result, the immunotherapy treatment I have been receiving every 3 weeks has been stopped and I am now on chemotherapy pills that I take twice per day.  The tumor on my liver and the thrombus to my heart continues to remain stable.  The plan is to keep taking the pills for 2 or 3 months and then have another PET scan to check the effectiveness of the new treatment. Isaiah 43:2 when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The flames will not set you ablaze.
