      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

                  Sorry to hear Lynn is deteriorating, life seems so surreal when you living this stress. My father never gave up the will to live either, and so all we could do is support him in this belief, until life was gone. 

                  I too believe there will be a time when all those who pass away will live again, so hold onto that comfort. Take care of yourself.

                      My heart breaks for you both.  The test of a person is during these difficult times and you and Lynn stand out like shining stars. Whatever comes to pass you have the comfort of having done the right thing so well.  God bless you both and your praying motorcycle friends.    Fen

                            I hate this disease so very much.  I will certainly pray the Temador works for you.  I am very glad you have so many around you supporting you.

                                              I’ve followed your posts for some time and it makes me sad to hear what you and Lynn are going through. It’s heartbreaking when you hear that a fighter like Lynn is running out of options. I’m praying that the Temodar works. God be with you and Lynn.
