Topic: Charlie is a Phenomenon
Phenomenon: Something that is impressive or extraordinary; a remarkable or exceptional person.
Hey Lainy, didn't want to steal Teddy's Miracle Man status, but we have some Miracle Men, don't we?
On Charlie's break from chemo, after about every procedure known for cc, we met with Dr. Kennedy in Cary, NC about the SIRspheres procedure. We met with him last summer, but when UNC Hosp. called about the resection, we didn't go through with it at that time. Well, a year later, we're now just waiting for Blue Cross to approve it, hoping and praying to have it done the first of Dec. In the meantime, Charlie will get another oxaliplatin infusion along with Xeloda pills this week to try to keep the tumors stable until BC gives approval. Dr. Kennedy couldn't believe how good Charlie looks and acts with all he's been through and his liver function and lab tests are good. I think it's his good attitude, faith in God, sense of humor and lots of love piled on him. It's gotta' help! I am truly amazed at how well he takes all the chemo and procedures and diagnostic tests with very little complaint. Please add Charlie to your prayers for the procedure to be approved. Thank you! Love to all on this site.
