The Start   September 29th, 2011

From Linda…

The day began early at 8am with a CT scan to measure and check the growth of his tumors. At this point, they told us that the target start time for chemo would be 4pm.

The powers that be decided a MRI would be a good followup to get a more exact measure and Jake was on call for a time slot. About 2pm we got the COA or Certificate of Approval that Jake T cells in the lab were a 100% go for the start. Yeah! Woohoo! Yippee! This meant that the pharmacy could start making Jake’s personal chemo cocktail.

Jake arrived for his MRI at 3pm to be told it had broken down, but they got it up and running to get him in by 4pm and out about 5pm. Finally, we were just waiting for the chemo.  At 7:30pm, Jake officially began the chemotherapy portion of his treatment. Treatment has begun!

A toast to N.E.D.

and a mantra from the chaplain


All will be well
All will be well
All manner of things
Will be well

You must be glad the waiting is over! I’m sure you will live through this part of your journey just like you have lived through the last couple of months, making you all stronger!

I’ll send you a translated email from my friend Marcelle about her trip to China to learn how to use energy to overcome her cancer later this weekend. It was very interesting to see how they were trained with excellent results.
