Mesothelioma can go to hell! Update from Keith this morning on my chemo.

Hi all in my email menu !

Once again, apologies if you get this nasty news 2nd hand or doubled up as it goes "universal".

We saw Louisa's Oncologist, Allan Zimet, at Epworth Hospital in Melbourne yesterday afternoon 5 Aug. following her PET scan last wednesday.  Results - new cancer tumours growing on left & right side of chest area above & below diaphragm, plus increased fluid buildup in abdominal area.

Zimet wants immediate chemotherapy so Louisa will be admitted to John Fawkner Private Hosp in Melbourne today at 1pm for an initial 2 nights. 6-8 weeks of chemo will follow.

As usual she is looking great & will fight this latest upset as she has for the last 10 1/2 years.

I may be hard to get for a few days but will keep you posted

All the best to everyone

Keith
