It turns out that the new chemo drugs are not working. The CT scan showed that for the first time since beginning treatment at M.D. Anderson in May, the tumors have grown. So, Maura will be going back to one of the previous chemo drugs but at a much higher dose. She will be hospitalized on Monday for about a week so that they can keep a tighter control on the dosage and her response, basically wanting her to have as much as she can tolerate but no more. We are thankful that Dr. B. is not afraid of aggressive treatment. Maura, as always, is amazing.
