5th chemo cycle started

David received his fifth IV chemo today and started taking the chemo pills (6 per day). But for this cycle, Dr. Brooks will have David stop taking the chemo pills after 10 days instead of after 14 days, in the hope that this will prevent David from having the intestinal problems that plagued him at the end of the last two chemo cycles.

Also, after chemo cycle 6 is completed, Dr. Brooks will do another CAT scan to check on the status of the cancer. We are, of course, hoping that will show the tumors have shrunk more.
