Sign on the bottom line
From The Wife:
This week we went to City of Hope to have the consultation on the AP23573 Phase III Trial.
Dr. Chow explained and told us all that would happen in this trial. Marco needed to have blood drawn and a CT Scan done the next day. These tests will be sent to an outside lab to look at and determine if Marco is eligible to continue with Phase III of AP23573. As soon as the results are back from this outside lab we wll be getting a call with an appointment to have Marco start his treatment.
It was funny the whole time that we were in the doctors office talking and seeing Marco sign all the paper work, consent forms, HIPPA forms and all of what needed to be signed before the treatment is given: The positive feeling in that room was overwhelming. I kept telling Marco that I could feel that he would be the one to get the real "pill" and not the "sugar pill". I think the mind is a powerful thing and at times I find myself hoping and sending positive vibes to Marco to have some good energy go his way.
Marco has been doing well. He is still in some pain but most of the soreness is in the surgery area. He is looking good. He was able to sit through a Dodger game on Monday night up until the 7th inning which was great. I am very glad that Marco is doing better.
I will let you know when his appointment will be to start the AP23573 treatment. Fingers crossed that this pill will be the one to hold off the sarcoma cancer in a lot of patients. Cancer Sucks and it needs to be nipped in the bud.
