    Carboplatinum and Gemzar  

        (once a week for three weeks with one week off)

June 2005

    After my lymph nodes beginning to grow and a CT scan revealed "shading" in my abdomen a new chemotherapy regime began.

    This is an alternating 21 day cycle that begins with #1 cycle.  After 21 days from #1 cycle, #2 cycle is given.  This repeated process is expected to last approximately 12 months.

        #1 Ifosfamide and Etoposide (given over 4 days)

        #2 Vincristine, Doxorubicin, and Mesna (given in 1 day)

July 2005

    After 3 cycles of my new chemo regimen, my largest lymph node (+3.5cm) has shrunk to half its size (1.5 cm)
