Rather than the treatments we thought we’d be having, yesterday afternoon was another Avastin treatment (it helps to strangle blood flow to the tumors so helps reduce swelling somewhat), starting a short sharp course of steroids until the avast in kicks in; then icing on the cake – he’s now connected to a Dilaudid and Versed continuous pump.

I don’t know Joshua really understood how much of a headache he’s been constantly having until the dilaudid took it away. So despite it being a not great thing, its a good thing.
