Just spoke with Bob.

He hadn't called since nothing has really changed since the last time we talked. Understandably, he says it's hard for him to talk about things, particularly since nothing seems to be changing as far as any treatment options.

He does have a doctor appointment tomorrow and is hopeful that they will finally propose some sort of treatment direction. He says the doctors keep mentioning clinical trials but then are never prepared to offer anything along those lines.
As you can imagine, that is incredibly frustrating to Bob.

I plan on speaking with Bob again in two days after he has his appointment tomorrow.

Let's hope the doctors have a plan.

Thanks as always for the update Coot. I only hope that this next appointment goes well and gives Bobo some definite and positive answers amd that that his physical and mental burdens will be eased. Prayers and thoughts on the wind to Pittdburg for this family.

Thanks for keeping us posted, cooter. Bob is never far from my thoughts. I hope the appointment today results in some options for him to pursue.

I recently watched a PBS special on epigenetics and how a man was brought into remission through trial treatments. His cancer was not responding to traditional methods so he signed up for trials. The way the show explained it is that if the genome is the body's computer, the epigenome is the software directing the computer. If an error message or damaged 'line of code' is tagged to a gene, they don't perform the duties they are supposed to (things like 'turning off' and forgetting they are a tumor suppressor or replicating uncontrollably). If they can correct the code, the gene will then behave as intended. So the idea is not to simply destroy cells via chemo and radiation but to reprogram them to do what they are supposed to do. It was exciting and I couldn't help but wish Bob could benefit from this newly found knowledge. I can't imagine his frustration right now.

P&L to Pittsburgh....

He is incredibly frustrated. Every appointment they mention clinicals but never set anything up. Doing nothing is no option for Bob and he knows it. The emotional is wearing on him as much or more than the physical. I just hope they get something moving right away.

Physically, since he's off chemo, he is feeling a little better. But he knows the ticking time bomb is still ticking.

coot* thank you for the update on Bob. We continue to pray for him, Denise and Cami.

I'm sure his frustration is warranted and even anger, I cannot fathom what his physical body is going through let alone his inner turmoil. Hoping he can keep a positive and chin up through all of this, even as hard as that may be...we pray he can.

I just got off of the phone with Denise. She says Bob has been feeling poorly the last several days and will probably be admitted to the hospital if he doesn't improve shortly.

She says that things haven't been going well at all.

Not the kind of news anyone likes to share but Bob has always wanted me to do as he has done and tell it like it is.

Please keep the O'Briens in your prayers, now more than ever.

This is heartbreaking but thanks for passing on the news, Coot. The O'Briens are always in my prayers but I'll be increasing those wishes for Bob to feel better soon.

I've been avoiding this thread lately. I'm so saddened to hear about the way things are going, although it is not unexpected. I guess I've been holding out for the miracle. I feel so bad that Bob, Cami, and Denise are having to go through all this, and though I know God's hand is here, I'm having a hard time seeing it. All my love to these fine people through faith in the true miracle: The road does go on forever.

No need to post the answer here Coot, but how did Denise sound?

Like Linus wrote a bit ago....our words here might seem hollow and we realize Bob won't see them, but it's our public connection to the Obriens and a way to keep us all aware, remind us to keep them all in our prayers and thoughts.

Never forget the reason these threads started in the first place - Bob wanted us guys to get ourselves checked out so we don't end up going thru what he's going thru....got to LOVE a guy like that.

Pray, pray, pray.

Hopefully Denise occasinally gets a chance to read some of the posts in this thread to Bob, although he's aware of the presence of this thread, & the posts do say pretty much the same thing -- we love ya, brother -- hollow, love is not
what benjamin says -- pray, pray pray
