      Hi Jan,

      How is Dirk doing?

      I am sorry for your bad news. You are asking very good questions. What are your doctors saying at UCLA??? What treatment are they recommending??? If the UCLA doctors are not giving you answers< I would complain & tell them how you are feeling. You have a 50-50 chance that they might change their attitude. UCLA doctors should be answering your questions, if not, I woulds seriously look at going somewhere else. Dirk should not be treated like a lab rat.

      Hope things start to get better for you. Please keep us posted you have everyone support
