So this is it, this is the dreaded Chemotherapy: It doesn’t look like much, but this is what I take on Monday. Then the following Monday, I go in for an IV infusion of a different drug and start taking different pills every day for two weeks. Then on April 4, they do another IV infusion and then I’m done Cycle 1. Cycle 2 would start May 2. Best of all, they tell me it should be not too terribly bad as far as nausea goes. Mostly, they have to keep an eye on my blood counts with a blood test every week. Severe mouth sores are also a possibility as well as numbness and tingling in my hands and feet.
However, the Chemo team at the Cross Cancer Institute was extremely accomodating of our schedule. So we can still go back to La Crete for Easter as planned. And Eug and Leona, we are a go for your wedding on May 7 as well.
I’m often amazed at how good everything is working out. I give full credit to God working through the prayers of His people. Thank you so much to all who are praying for us. It is greatly appreciated. Also thanks for your generous financial support. We have not yet had to wonder about money and have even enjoyed several meals out, thanks to some of you taking us out while you’re here and to others for gift cards to different restaurants. There are also those who give cash gifts. We are so grateful for all the help you’ve given.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV
