Chemo Week 2

Yesterday (2/23/2010), Stan saw a transplant specialist about a liver transplant. Stan is definitely not a candidate for a liver transplant. The transplant doctor suggested that a prob be inserted into the area affected by the cancer, to get a better look at how much of the liver is impacted. We are waiting for a call from his staff to follow up on his recommendation.
Today, Stan had his second session of Chemotherapy. With the anti-nausea medicine he receives, he is tired but he feels fine. At the session they noticed red lines and swelling in his arms, so they sent him for a sonogram. The sonogram reveled that he has blood clots in both arms. He is now back on his daily injection of blood thinner.
