Dear Tine, I am sorry to worry you, my mom is still the same, no appetite, weight loss and very weak. Yesterday we saw Dr. Tempero and Dr. Venook in UCSF, and Dr. Tempero thinks that Gemzar alone is not working so she is recommending Gemzar/Cisplatin with 100 minutes infusion. They were supposed to call my mom's oncologist yesterday for my mom had a chemo treatment scheduled for today, but they did not call so my mom still had 30 minutes Gemzar, and we just found out that Dr. Venook is on vacation till the 12th, and Dr. Tempero is in all day conference and since this is Friday before a long weekend I will assume that these doctors will not be able to talk till maybe Wednesday, I hope this will be taken care of by today, because Dr. Tempero also wants another CT Scan and another blood test done. So it is altogether a very disappointing day. My mom is just so weak, very constipated none of the prescribed/over the counter laxatives worked. But Dr. Tempero is prescribing Senecot, so let us see what is going to happen. My mom though is looking forward to the holiday for all her kids and grandkids will be at her house. Thanks again. Hope all is well with you and your loved ones. Thelma
