  1. I can't believe this score
  2. Don't know if I've ever seen a TCU B-Ball team looking like this.
  3. Yes it is.
  4. Hey PD, I'm getting to watch the game.
  5. Holy crap, just logged onto the internet and saw we beat KU! The future is bright!! Made my day!
  6. And for those that have to work, wear red to show your solidarity....
  7. PD asked me to give an update on Tyler's progress. He's done two immunotherapy treatments and it's been a bit of a roller coaster. He had a lot of complications, like his blood pressure bottoming out about 57/25 during the first treatment. The treatment causes severe widespread nerve pain which requires high dose narcotics and he ended up in narcotic withdrawal afterwards. The second time we were much better prepared for all of these and he's done better. He has a chest CT on March 13th and, assuming that is clear, he will then do three more treatments. If all goes well, we will be done by end of May. We have kept his apartment up at college because he likes it and his roommates, so he has something to look forward going back to. Been rough but we are all keeping one foot in front of the other and hoping this will get rid of the cancer for good. Yesterday his childhood friend was commissioned as an officer in the Marine Corps outside the US Capitol and Tyler was able to attend. That did wonders for his mood. We just reduced the narcotics so we are hoping he can get out and drive some, and get away from mom and dad for a bit. Prayers for a clear chest CT on the 13th would be much appreciated. It means a lot to us that so many people around the world are praying for Tyler.
  8. Thanks so much everyone. The other thing we are doing is sending this most recent tumor out for genetic testing. They will break down the DNA of the tumor, which may tell us if there are other "druggable" targets that could be effective for treatment purposes. Hopefully the immunotherapy does the trick, but I'm hopeful the genetic testing will give us more information since he's already done two different types of chemo.
  9. Sorry PD, been very busy. So he was accepted into a immunotherapy clinical trial, which essentially hopes to train his immune system to identify the cancer cells and kill them. He did a ton of tests yesterday for the study, which included a Chest CT which showed no remaining signs of cancer. So the hope is that this new treatment will seek out and destroy any microscopic cancer cells that may remain, and he can get back to his life. We will do 5 courses of treatment, with each course being a 28 day cycle. He goes into the hospital next Monday for the first infusion, and hopefully will come home 2 days later. If all goes well treatmet would be done by end of May. So apprecaite all prayers that this new treatment destroys any remaining cancer once and for all.
  10. So very sorry to hear this news. My prayers are with his family
  11. Yes, thanks to MAVSMAN and RH for keeping this going!
  12. Best of luck to you and the wife SFA. Sending positive thoughts your way
  13. Rabican (aka The Purple Troll) is my husband. There will be no living with him now...
  14. Feisty, I'm so sorry you won't be here any longer. We will very much miss your contributions.
