This morning Mike received his second round of immunotherapy treatment (the Opdivo/Yervoy cocktail) and had an appointment with his oncologist, Dr. Young. Young was not surprised about any of the side effects Mike has been dealing with, calling them pretty par for the course. So that is positive even if his body is feeling whooped up on most days. Overall a good visit. Oh, and another positive is that he had his midline removed! That means no more tubes placed in his arm/chest, etc!! They are going to try his next infusion just regular IV placed and removed at the appointment. He was pretty stoked about that!
Since Mike’s body seems to very much dislike the few days post-infusion…in particular the Thursday after the infusion (both times he was admitted on a Thursday)…Young has put in place some options to stave off some of the side effects, the fever and potential infection that have landed him in the hospital twice now. Crossing everything this time around is better! I know some folks like to pray/think/voodoo/juju towards specific things… If you are inclined, a more focused “ask” would be for Mike’s body to have hella strength in these days after his immunotherapy treatment and that the meds are doing exactly what they should be doing inside the war zone that is his body. Many thanks for the continued love and support, you guys.
