Update - August 27, 2012

Jane started Cycle 15 on Tuesday August 21st at MD Anderson with the experimental drug and the traditional chemotherapy.  On Monday August 27th, Jane met with her OBGYN oncologist who could not detect any evidence of the disease after a physical exam - Great News!  We are now waiting on the formal results of today's OBGYN test.  On September 13th, Jane is now scheduled to undergo a series of tests including CT scan, EKG, etc. to assess the present stage of Jane's cancer; if you recall, the last CT scan showed no measurable evidence of Jane's cancer!  Depending on the results of the Sept. 13th tests, Jane's doctors will make a recommendation on, among other options, whether to continue the full treatments, scale back the treatment protocol or take a "chemo break.". So far for this cycle, Jane is handling the 15th treatment fairly well, although the side effects remain persistent.

There is no doubt that the power of prayer has guided us along this journey and we are so grateful to so many family and friends with their outpouring of love, support and guidance.  Each of you remain in our sincere prayers of thanksgiving. 

Update (August 9, 2012)

Jane started Cycle 14 on Tuesday August 7th at MD Anderson with the experimental drug and the traditional chemotherapy. Jane's spirits are positive but she continues to experience the side effects from the drug regime.  We will have at least one more cycle on August 24th and then MDA will perform a series of tests including  CT scans to assess Jane's position.  At that point, the doctors will recommend a path forward.

We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and prayers by family and friends.  We know that we would not be in this position but for your prayers, rosaries, Masses and love and for that, we will be eternally grateful.
