Today Jenelle and I met with Dr.Dunkel of Memorial Sloan Kettering. After speaking we all agreed that we should keep Cristian on his current regiment of Bevacizumab and Irinotecan.
Today Cristian had another MRI. It was the second MRI since he began the new treatment on Thursday 2/28/08, consisting of the Combination of Bevacizumab and Irinotecan. When Cristian had his first MRI on 4/14/08 while on this combination of Bevacizumab and Irinotecan, there was a decrease in the tumor’s size by almost 15 percent. We were so happy.
Cristian seems to have no desire to eat. It is a struggle to get him to eat. In my opinion, his right side is also getting worse in my opinion. Besides that Cristian is living a normal life. Cristian isn’t going to school because of his inability to go consistently but he reads and writes and is very smart.
