      Oh BudBandit, I am so sorry to read this update. Some of my friends are on a triplet ... I want to say it is Keytruda, Carboplatin, and Alimta or Avastin ... I guess it might not work ... but please know there could be other options out there for you. Have your tumors been tested for mutations?

      You have a beautiful attitude, especially after just getting news like this. Praying a solution is found and that you and your soon-to-be wife have many happy years together.

      Hi LWC, sorry about the late comment,I just now refound this post,they just found all the other stuff last week,the tumor in my right lung had grown twice the size,it had closed my right windpipe and was squeezing my left one almost suffocated a couple times,would you believe I'm just now getting oxygen and nebulizer for the house,as of last Tuesday that is,The only follow up for mutation that I know of being on schedule is where they did radiation treatment on my brain.This week I have to do radiation every day for 8 more days. Thanks for the well wishes :)
