I'm not to good at this computer stuff. But I don't remember or can't find any update on your continued treatment after discovered progression after nivolumab. They just told my husband there was nothing they could do for him. And he went into Hospice care. How did you make out ? I do hope it was better than my husband. Blessings Mary Lou

Thank you for your support. Through the Grace of God, Jim bounced back and is now feeling a little better. He is not as confused and is sleeping less. Still not eating very good. I hear this is a natural process. I am doing good. Jim and I talk a lot about the end of life and how blessed we've been all these years.. He is prepared and is not afraid to die. I thank God for that. I take each day as it comes, and make the best of each day I have left with Jim. Some days, it still doesn't feel real that he is going to die, I feel he'll just keep going as he is, and I don't let myself think about the end, but I do know the reality. I have faith that God will carry all of us down this path of life and death.

It has been so long since I have responded, or even thought about this site. I'm sorry that I can't report more positive information for everyone. To get to the point, we are now receiving the amazing support of Harbor Hospice in Muskegon Michigan.. We were told there was nothing more to be done for Jim. His Opdivo stopped working and a new tumor has formed in his other lung along with ground glass. Doctor said he is to weak to be in any trials, thus we were referred to Hospice to focus on quality of life. He has been given possibly 6 months. Shortly after this, the took a fall and broke a rib which took its tole on his physical and mental health. So here we are. We are so blessed we have our faith, friends, neighbors, church family, and family's loving help and support. We are facing each day focusing on our blessings, and dealing with new normal the best we can. I wish you continues success with your treatment, and many more days of feeling good. Gods speed my friend.

Wow. Can't believe how long it has been since I've visited this site. To answer your question Colleen, we did have a goldenretriever. He was a light colored male named Jake. He lived to be 16 years old, then old age got him. So now, where did I leave off ? I had a very severe lung infection, and thought I was going to die. But it was caught and treated in time. My second chest Xray showed the tumor and the lymph nodes shrinking. The best Christmas gift I could have received. I continue on Opdivo. I'm on my 8th treatment. Continue to feel more sick each day. But not to the point I want to stop the treatment. I am seeing a palautive care doctor. He manages my pain medsl instead of my primary care doctor. But I see my primary care doctor for everything else. Right now, with this 55 degree day here in Michigan, I am getting anxious to get my corvette out of storage, and drive it again, for as long as I feel able. But of course, Winter WILL return. Thanks for your correspondence. Blessings

Not at this time. I imagine they are waiting for my first CT scan, which they do after the 6th or 8th treatment. I’m at number 4 next week. Next week, I will ask what my options are, if the Opdivo does not work. Thank you for the sites related to cancer, for me to read. Thank you also, for responding to my posting. Blessings to you for a wonderful Christmas Season.

Thank you for responding, my dear friend. I’m so glad you have not experienced any sickness from your treatments. I had the fatique with my chemo and radiation, as you have had. I’m 73. Right now, the Opdivo is not making me sick, so very thankful for that. I wish you many more days with the people you love the most. And continued success with your chemo treatment. Blessings, and warm wishes for a wonderful Christmas Season.

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your time. I initially had three biopsy’s so we know what they are dealing with. If they could have cut it out, things would look differently today. But it was to close to my heart, and now the new mutations are entangling one of my airways in the other lung. We will ask about other treatment options if the Opdivo isn’t working. Will have a CT scan in January if all is well. So we will just hope and pray for good results in January .We just take it one day at a time, and enjoy our family and each other. Each day is a gift and we are thankful for what we are given. Blessings to you and your wife, and wishes for a wonderful Christmas Season.
