    I have not been on very much lately. My 'everything is stable' mode is changing and I have been sick off and on.

    I have had 4 yrs and 10 months of Tarceva keeping me stable but my last scans last month shows some changes. My brain mets are stable so that is great. My lungs have new spots, some old spots that were shrinking and starting to grow. Couple spots that show possible lymphatic malignancy spreading and disease worsening.

    Will have new scans in couple months and probably have biopsy and check for mutations. May switch to Tagrisso if I have the right mutations.

    Also been having a lot of eye issues, acne in my eyes off and on quite often. Dr said many patients with the same problem have to be taken off Tarceva.

    I have had laryngitis, eye infections, acid reflux flare ups, acne on scalp and pneumonia. Starting to feel better, in fact I went to gym and rode recumbant bike for 20 min. today.

    My brother and his wife are touring the countryside in their RV and will be in next month to visit for a couple weeks. Excited about that time with our family all together and enjoying our time filled with laughter and memories.
