Prayer Update October 29th
Friends the Lord is gracious and merciful and I want to share that the visit with my doctor went very well. I am amazed at how thoughtful, and caring my doctor has been. He took a good bit of time answering our questions and hearing us out. We had been having some communication glitches and he apologized for that and handed me his cell phone number to call him if I had any questions or concerns. He's been fighting for me and pushing for what he thinks is the best course of treatment for me and I was so thankful to hear him say that. He is trying to get to the source of the problem and wanting to really see long term results hence the waiting on surgery, chemo and radiation. He is being thoughtfully aggressive and I appreciate that. In fact he had me come in so soon after I started my meds to make sure I was actually taking them... I guess he was afraid me being a granola eating, tree hugger, earth mama I would skip out on my hard core meds ;)
He also measured my tumors (which are connected together) and let us know that there has been a slight decrease in the size. Originally measuring in at 4x5 cm it is now 3x4 cm in just a few short weeks of being on these drugs and caring for my body holistically. I know I have a long road ahead of me but this was such good news and just the encouragement we needed today.
Please continue to pray for me as I start a new medication tomorrow evening. This is a stronger drug and I am going to need to go in every week to have my white blood cell counts checked. Please pray that the drugs will continue to work effectively with no adverse side affects.
Also please pray that my family and I would continue to stay healthy and strong especially as we begin cold and flu season.
AND thank you for being FAITHFUL in prayer! I can't tell you how much it means to us all here that we are being covered in prayer! Please continue.
