From Jack's blog for all who are following as my much loved nephew Jack is fighting esopogeal cancer which has become systemic. Jack had appeared to have a miraculous recovery from stage 4 last year, but after 6 months some cancers had returned, so Jack is undergoing another round of stronger chemo and good vibes are always needed.

Treatment #2 Underway
Here's a quick post to let you know how things are going now that treatment #2 has begun.

Dr. Richards dialed back the dosage a bit for the two IV drugs, Epirubicin and Oxaliplatin. We had already gone with a scaled back dosage for treatment #1 because at the time, as we all now know, I had a cold and slightly lower white blood cell count. The idea for round #2 is obviously to try and keep the treatment from having the same extreme affect that it had last time on my white blood cell count. In addition, we decided to be very assertive with using Neulasta as a WBC booster and I'll be going back to his office on Friday, 3/6 at 3:15pm for a Neulasta injection.

So... that's the deal. At the moment I'm feeling generally OK. A bit washed out and tired but with a little help from a zofran pill I'm mostly keeping things even keel right now."

Thanks for your positive thoughts for Jack.
