      Went to MDA last week for scans and they found new metastesis on my lungs, liver, and spine.  I also had lots of fluid on my left lung so they pulled off a liter and sent it for analysis.  Got the word today that the fluid containde Melanoma cells.  Dr. Holmsi told us last week that he would put me in the IPI/Temador trial if the results came back positive for cancer so I guess I will be starting this soon. 

      I am glad to find this site so we can get some information and updates on the trial.  I am a school teacher so I will just have to deal with the side effects because I sure can't affor to retire yet.
