Julie, Grandma, Mom
Parker & Aiden at Grandma's 80th Birthday Party!

Josh and Rosie met with the Dr. in CA today. Josh is able to be part of the study, but it's not the one he had researched before. That one is closed for 2 months. Next week, on Tuesday, Josh will go back out to CA and start the one that they talked about today. I'm getting all this info from Mom and Josh didn't tell her what it's called. What we know about it, is that it's not a shot like we all thought it was going to be. It's a type of chemo. When he gets there they will put the drugs in a pump and then he can go back to the hotel. The next morning he will go back to the clinic for them to remove the pump and then he will get to come home. He will have to go to CA once every 3 weeks. After 6 weeks they will do a scan to see how it's working. If it shows progress they will keep him on it, but I don't know how long they will do that. If it doesn't show progress they will let him start the other one when it opens back up. If he does that one he will have to travel to CA once every week.

Please pray that Josh and Rosie will have a safe flight home tomorrow and that everything will work out with this new treatment!
