FACT: In January, Mike's doctor told us that latest CAT showed 2 lesions on his liver.
FACT: He began 'the last thing we can do for you' chemo regime.
FACT: This regime has about a 20% chance of slowing the cancer.
FACT: He is supposed to get two drugs, on two days, two weeks apart.
FACT: He has missed two weekly treatments as his platelets were too low.
FACT: He continues to experience a lot of pain and takes increasingly strong doses of pain killers.
FACT: Last week, he got another CAT.
FACT: We went to yesterday's (4/22) appointment, ready for bad news.
So, amid discussions of Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversary, relocating to the lake, and the 5th annual "I'm not dead yet" birthday party, we both expected that such dreams would vanish like a puff of smoke.
Turns out as per his doctor:
"Some things are smaller. Some are larger. We call this 'disease stable'. Let's continue with chemo."
So God, you give us more time together. Show us what we are to do with this time.
And blog friends, thank you for being faithful. God's blessings rain down on us, in big ways and small.
And.....we will keep you posted.
