    I hope everything went well today.
    I’m going tomorrow to sign consent forms to start the trial. How long did it take for the trial to start from the time you signed the forms? I feel new nodes pop up everyday and I feel like the treatment can’t start soon enough.

    I am hoping that you got good news this week and I’m hoping for miracle results for me too.
    All the best,

      Hi Linda,

      Today went well. We still don't have final measurements as the scans are sent to trial headquarters ( not sure where that is) and the same person there reads them everytime so they are always read the exact same way.

      All we know is it's stable, they're going to email me when they have the measurements. I think the holidays slowed everything down. I'll post when i know.

      I think it took about a month for him to start on the drugs. There are a whole bunch of baseline tests they do before you can start.

      Good luck tomorrow.
