Don's application for the test drug trial was denied.
I do not know if it is the FDA or the company that is doing the drug tests, but whomever makes the guidelines, decided that they did not want anyone involved in this study who has had grade 3 and higher varices.. which Don does.
I had to break the news to Don and I could tell he took it kind of hard. He was very quiet for about a day...but a new dawn gave birth to a new attitude and he decided that taking the chemo during the Summer would be extremely difficult on him since there is a lot more farm work in the Summer than there is in the Fall and Winter. Our doctor said that a new drug is slated to be approved in June/July. When that comes available, he will put Don on it.
Please keep him in your prayers.
I love you guys,
