      I dont know how but Lynn ldh went down to 900 was 1300. The dr will not be doing the sixth gamma knife. Lynn is to weak. He starts Temador tomo but they gave us only a 15 to 20 percent chance in it working. Theres just nothing else for us to try. Lynn is a fighter and was willing to try this.

      Lynn got saved a long time ago and hes says he knows hes going to heaven. I think hes ready but not ready he prayed today and asked God to heal him hes asked God to please take him home if he wasnt going to heal him. Ive never seen one man have so many people pulling for him. They recently had a bike run for him over 100 motorcycles and riders showed up. Ive seen people pray that I would have never thought could pray.

      Thank all of you for responding when i just needed comforting words. I pray God continues to comfort snd heal each of you and I pray all these new drugs make it in time to save you all.

      Lynn survived 5 gamma knife surgeries for 32 brain mets, ipi was a breeze no problems, zelobraf for 8 month and abaraxene and know on to temador. DONT EVER GIVE UP OR GIVE IN. FIGHT ON MY DEAR FAMILY

                I so respect Lynn for still being willing to fight the melanoma but, at the same time, accepting that God may have another plan in mind. I will try to follow Lynn's lead. I will pray that Lynn is one of the 20% who respond to the Temodar. But I will also pray that, if Lynn does not respond, that he is at peace with that. Belva, you have been an outstanding caregiver and support for Lynn. No man could ask for more. I am praying for you, too, that you have both strength and peace during this difficult time.
