On Monday April 14th, Jane met with her doctors at MD Anderson and started the first round of the chemotherapy drug "Gemzar". The plan is for Jane to take the Gemzar drug every other week through IV. Rather than once a week, the doctors will administer it every other week to provide Jane with adequate time to handle the drug and it's expected side effects. The most likely side effects are expected to be flu like systems for a couple of days after treatment.
Jane remains in positive spirits and ready to go forward with this new drug. We continue to be humbled by the strong and consistent support of so many family members and friends. We are touched by the cards, emails, prayers, Masses and rosaries offered up for Jane. It is Holy Week and the Easter season is upon us. We wish everyone a Happy Easter and please know that each of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
