Recent Update on Gibby

We had our appointment with Dr. Becerra on Monday, July 17. He told us the catscan revealed growth of the tumors; they have invaded the stomach, which explains the difficulty he has had with digestion, discomfort, and overall lack of appetite and weight loss. The Gemzar was totally ineffective, much to their surprise. Our next step is for Gibby to be evaluated on August 8 at Baylor for qualification in another clinical study. The new doctor, associated with Dr. Becerra, will be Dr. Ben Garcia. We are hoping that he will qualify; he has lost so much weight that we are now on a supplement increased calorie diet. The doctor said we have 3 weeks to get in some traveling, so we are planning on seeing Jeff and doing something with Angela and Cherish, too. He is excited about that.
We will keep you all informed; this is a difficult time, and we thank all of you for your prayers and love. Faith plays an amazing part in this unbelievable walk -- and in all our lives every day, both yours and ours. Our God is an awesome God!
