Avastin – Glioblastoma Treatment

Mike’s Avastin treatment went well yesterday with no surprises.  If this months round of chemo is going to bring his platelets down, the next week or two is when we will start to see that on the blood tests, so if we can do the next Avastin and Chemo treatment on time we will be thrilled.  His blood pressure is being managed nicely with the three medications they have given him.  I think his blood pressure was 120/80 yesterday so that made the nurses very happy.  

He still has aches and pains that require him to stay on Percocet pretty regularly, but as far as big health issues, this was a great week.  

Its driving him crazy not being able to drive.  And some days, its driving me crazy too!  I miss the days of sending him out for milk, or the days when he could just go somewhere to get out of the house on his own for fun.

He’s excited about this season of Tides games coming up, so if any of his friends want to go to a game give him a call and pick him up for a guys night out at the game!!

There wasn’t a lot to update, so that is always a good thing. Still fighting the battle with no signs of losing it.
