      Hi Val,

      You are correct.  Eric isn’t on Ipi right now.  He is doing a dendric cell vaccinne.  We think that it may not be working because he has a new tumor so they are going to reevaluate him next Tuesday.  Eric has over 100 sub-cutaneous and cutaneous tumors in his right leg.  We really haven’t found anything that has worked for him yet.

      He is actually at the doctor right now getting his Brain MRI results.  They just did it this morning.  We are a little worried because there have been some behavioral changes in him.

      I wish I had some good advice for you, but we really haven’t found anything that has helped him yet.  I will definitely let you know if we do.  Good luck to you.
