    I mentioned before Xmas, Dad would be starting his new experimental chemo. First one was yesterday. Had him on demerol, but spoke w/Mom. Everything went okay. They were going to wait until after his pacemaker upgrade (2wire to 4 wire) next week, but the oncologist called and didn’t want to wait 6 weeks. Going to be able to go ahead with the pacemaker next week. Tough double dipper, no pun intended.

    Talked to Dad last night. Doing okay. Was itching which apparently is one of the side effects. Some new drug that starts w/an R. He couldn’t remember exactly what it was. I was researching into the hairy cell leukemia and found an interesting trial in Penn. where they took the HIV virus,genetically altered, and injected it over a short period. The 3 trials I read had one with 100% cure, 80% and 60%, respectively. Pretty amazing that they take one of the worst viruses and alter it to kill cancer cells only. I sent him the article to read last month. Don’t know if he talked to his doc about it or not.

    Keep an eye on that itching Kevin it can also be a symptom of an allergic reaction to the meds.

    The itching could also be an indication of something not right w/ his bile duct or pancreas.
