Oncology update ...

My oncologist was very pleased with the pathology results. My next round of chemo starts in 2 weeks. I will be taking the exact same oral chemo as before but in a stronger dose. There will be a total of six rounds of treatments. Each round will consist of 14 days of chemo two times a day and then 7 days off.

At this point, we are unsure how my body will react but do not anticipate anything very serious.

I meet with my surgeon Feb 9th. He will review my new chemo schedule to help him determine when to reverse my ileostomy.

In the meantime, I am still dealing with the pain and recovery from my Jan 4th surgery. Please continue to pray for me and my family.

Thank you. - Eric
