Update on ZOOM! Vote for this post

Update on my ZOOM!
The University of IL oncologist said ZOOM! had failed the CHOP/Wisconsin University Protocol chemo treatment after his 5th week of treatments. His body is immune to the chemo drugs used for that treatment plan.
He gave me two other options. MOPP that is very expensive up to $400 to $600 a visit due to hard to find chemo drugs and would need to come of U of IL every two weeks then off two week.  Other option was CCNU with is a pill that would cost us about $200 a visit and he would come to U of I every third week. Neither is found better than the other with treatment results so I went w CCNU. He got the CCNU Lomustine pill on 9/25 and a injection of Elspar and his steroid med was changed to something stronger than Prednisone.  
He is tolerating the new drugs good. Lymph nodes were down to normal size since last Sat and have stayed down all week. He did barn hunt test on Sunday and agility class on Tuesday night. No side effects.  Eating and drinking good. He would get 5 treatments over the CCNU if it continues to work. If it doesn't we can try MOPP also. 
Praying this treatment protocol will work!
