Journal entry by Meg Howard

We met with Steve’s Oncologist. We have a plan:
Steve gets his first immunotherapy (Opdivo) on Friday.  We will watch him carefully for adverse reactions or side effects.
Future infusions will be every 2 weeks.
He gets a port installed on Wednesday, March 21, after his first infusion (we didn’t want to wait for the port since the infusion can be done as an IV into his arm).
We are proceeding with caution as there is potential for his immune system to attack the wrong tissue.

Steve is still recovering from his surgery last Wednesday. He continues his daily breathing treatments and that helps clear up his airways. He is still fatigued and weak.

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. We really need them and appreciate them. May God bless you all!
  Sincerely,    
   Meg
