Mini-Update from the Infusion Center

After a stressful few days of waiting for results of CT scans and poor sleep last night, I’m dozing here in the infusion center. I ate a good snack, they brought me a warm blanket, and the IV machine is quietly clicking and ticking—all pulling me to sleep!

As you may remember, being in the infusion center, starting cycle 3, Week 1 is good news! The scans showed that the cancer has slowed down from aggressive growth to a crawl while on these chemo meds for the past 6 weeks. I will do two more cycles then have another CT scan to see what impact the meds continue to have.

I’ve had some side effects appear in the past few days, most annoyingly significant swelling in my feet & ankles. Please join me in asking God to lessen this swelling. It’s not dangerous at this point—just irritating.

From experience the first two cycles, I’m likely to be sleeping a lot in the next few days. Don’t worry if you don’t see much from me until the weekend!

As always—THANK YOU for your support, prayers, good wishes and encouragement. You help me keep going!
