Hi, Abe,
I know an update is long over due.  My David is on Immunotherapy.  From what I understand, it is a treatment not available for all kinds of cancer.  Evidently it does not work for cancers of the lymph system.  His cancer is unusual in that it is a cancer that attacks the out side of his veins and pushes and grows from the outside until it closes them off.  That is why his blood was not returning to his heart and made him swell to large size from his waist down.  He was about to die.  The had told him there was no cure but they could treat him until he died.
I do not know a lot but he has taken this treatment, which consists of an infusion every 14 days and they do a CT once in a while.  His cancer has shrunk to almost nothing.  He feels like his own self.  They told him that he would not ever be off the treatment and that the treatment it's own self will start to attack his organs.   For now, we are so glad that he is alive and doing what he usually does with no pain and is happy.  It is hard to look forward to a time that will not be and I cannot.  I live in this day and so does he.
Love, Betty

Abe, I am glad you are on the mend.  I know how terrible it is to be incapacitated for a while.  With my lung thing, it was about two months.  I am ok now, but I doubt that I will ever be as feisty as I was before the operations.  It is a matter of determination.  I will not lay down, I will not give up and it is a fight to get normal.  I know you will do it.  You have a great mind and a beautiful heart.  That is a wonderful thing. I do love you.
Betty

Betty, thank you for the update on David. 

Immunotherapy is something we have become familiar with.  It is a major part of the treatment my wife is receiving.  It is expensive and not every hospital can or will provide that treatment.  Fighting the disease is a huge factor to healing and from what you report, David is a fighter.   The immune system is an interesting study and affects us in many ways.
 
Any improvement is to be celebrated and I think you are doing just that.

My dear friends!
Tomorrow morning my David goes for a PET scan to see if his cancer is gone!  When I think about the day that he and I stood at our kitchen counter and her said, "I am going to die!" with tears in his eyes.  He was swollen from head to foot and could not lay down and breathe. . . . . 
 Tomorrow is that new day that I always have told you will be.  We have such hope!  Tonight we are having chicken soup just to be sure.  Love, Betty and David

Well!   The PET scan found nothing but scar tissue.  The doctor said he could not say that David is now cancer free because PET scans could miss something microscopic and that he has to continue the Immunotherapy treatments.  That I did not understand.  But, WAAHHHOOOO!!!!!! 
Thank you all for your support and love.  I feel that a great weight has been lifted from us. 
Love,
Betty
