    Hi Mark,
    What a long road you all have had... lots of bumps.
    Sending you well wishes and prayers. Please let us know how she does.

    The results of the scan are in and it wasn't good. Her oncologist said there was a few area's of improvement but mostly there was an increase in affected areas and more growth in unaffected areas. They also did blood work and found her magnesium is still low so they are giving her an infusion tomorrow and then sending a script to our pharmacy for oral medication.
    They are also starting her on a new chemo sometime next week. It is called Kadcyla.

    That's all I have for now.
