    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Once a week for an hour and a half infusion. Not too bad. Using Erbitux.

    Side Effects (Loss of taste, beginning of mouth sores, red rash on face and neck): The rash is a good sihn that the chemo drug, Erbitux, is doing its jog. Docs very pleased.

    Week 2 of treatments and things are going as expected. Not too many side effects from rads, but the chemo has caused a red rash on face and chest. That is actually good news with using the Erbitux. Shows that the drug is working. Docs have loaded us up with all kinds of tricks to keep the mouth moist and reduce pain from any sores. Lots of stuff to do each day!
