Jenelle took Cristian to see Dr.Dunkle and discuss the options that are available. The options are Etoposide or Valproic Acid and Derivatives. Etoposide is a chemotherapy drug and Valproic Acid and Dervatives is a medicine that is used to prevent or treat seizures. Dr.Dunkle says the Panitumumab might be available in early October. Jenelle and I will discuss our decision with the team at Memorial Sloane Kettering on Tuesday. In the evening I spoke to Joe, which is Dylan’s father. I asked Joe advice and he was extremely helpful. The advice Joe gave me was basically the things I have been trying to do with Cristian since he was diagnosed with this disease. Reiki, Ray, a good chiropractor, a moderately strict diet, Protocel and newly Hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I am making the arrangements to just get these things done. Cristian is still the same and I truly believe we can help him get better.
