I talked to Dr. Rudnick on Friday afternoon, and he and I are done with Irinotecan and Temodar. He said I'll taking Tarceva and another chemo (don't remembered the name of that one yet), but Rudnick told me that this... Continue reading

09 Hotel It's Sunday ... I had read that by tonight, we'd have some rain. Again, we're talking P.M. rain, maybe even showers. Tonight. This picture is from 9:45 a.m. There's me ... And there's Esme ... Of course, she... Continue reading

With this week, my boss is in town, and finally, it's not raining for him. The last TWO times before this, it rained a lot, especially last year; today, perfect weather. The only thing I'm really dealing with right now... Continue reading

I started the sixth infusion for Irinotecan on Monday, and again, it takes at least three days to start feeling back to normal. I'm waiting to see Dr. Rudnick next week after I have a MRI that same morning at... Continue reading

It's 82 degrees, sunny. Dana is not there, of course ... her weekend has no free time there, instead of dealing with work stuff in Colorado with her boss and co-workers. I'm trying to ignore that as much as I... Continue reading

Every year, we basically ignore the Rose Bowl parade (8 years and counting), and we try to avoid the disgusting trash on Colorado. This morning, I walked down there after the parade to meet up with a couple of friends... Continue reading

Took a couple of pictures on Colorado Blvd. I was coming back from Quizno's, and I saw a bunch of Wisconsin fans. That's still irritating for me ... Michigan State beat them 34-24, but they shit the bed on one... Continue reading

After I only saw "Inception" in theaters for most of 2010 (I saw that twice), I finally went to the theater through the holidays to see "Tron: Legacy," "Black Swan," and "True Grit." I still think that "Inception" is the... Continue reading

It's raining and cold .... and while I know that the most of the rest of the world couldn't give a shit about "coldness" while every one else has to deal with real cold and snow, it is still annoying... Continue reading

I saw this website though Google News, regarding about the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) 15th Anniversary. December 1, 2010 (Montreal, Quebec) — A large study of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme suggests that the addition of 2 agents —... Continue reading

I haven't logged in for a while, because when you're writing about a cancer blog, the more you feel better in our body and mind, the inverse reaction is that you're less and less worried about your cancer and more... Continue reading

For what it's worth, I had a MRI on 8/23/2010. Again, nothing has changed, no sign of the tumor currently, and thus, there's not reason to change the current regime. Still taking Avastin every two or three weeks, depending on... Continue reading

The idea of starving glioblastoma and other gliomas is not necessarily a new concept, of course. Still, it makes perfect sense to rehash this constantly. Saw this article a couple of days ago. "By inhibiting fatty acid synthesis in the... Continue reading

I'm sitting here at Dave & Buster's, waiting to meet up with my co-worker, pounding Diet Coke because the Keppra is making me tired. I know that is a chain restaurant, but shit, the music I'm listing is awful. Bland,... Continue reading

What's new ... Like I said before, I had a MRI a few weeks ago, and it was basically clean. Of course, feeling pretty good about that. I think that was the 8th or 9th in a row now. That... Continue reading

I woke up early this morning to the sound of Esme yelping in her sleep and Dana and Mijo were nowhere in sight. I glance at the clock (2:30), and realized this was going to be a long day, at... Continue reading

`I love Imerman's Angels. Of course, that's nothing new. I've posted about IA several times over the course of the last year and change on my blog. I got an email a few weeks ago from Lisa Cristia (IA Connection... Continue reading

Funny, I just realized that it's been a month since the last time I posted anything. There's an inverse between how I feel and and what I need to say. I feel great, and thusly, I get focused on other... Continue reading

The good thing is about cancer people you meet is because they are the most humble, genuine, amazing people you meet. Of course, you meet them in the waiting room, getting ready to take a MRI or radiation or some... Continue reading

Read some "new" information from the 2010 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) that when surgeons are able to resect 78% or greater of glioblastoma cells, survival rates go up. "High-grade glioma is the most common primary malignant brain tumour,... Continue reading
