Oh yeah: update.

It's not like we've forgotten our blog friends. It's just that, right now, there's not much to report except:

Since Mike's doctor told us that there were visible lesions on his liver, we've followed a course, a last course, of chemotherapy. Dr. says that this is it...there is nothing else for us. And this treatment may buy a bit more time. Or maybe not.

This time, Mike goes to the Oncology Shop twice on one week and then takes a week off. This was, I thought, supposed to be 4 times, for 8 weeks. Except twice, Mike's platelets were too low and we skipped the treatment week.

Like this week.

Although our plans were, shall we say?, very very tentative, we DID slip away for a few days, to our quiet spot on the ocean. Two days of travel. Three days of sand and surf. Travel was ok. The other...two good days and one day not-so-good. Then it was back to Kokomo and Mike's teaching at Ivy Tech.

And although he said he did not feel tired, Saturday became a L O N G day of sleeping.

So today, platelets low and no chemo.

Next week, Mike will get another CAT and then we'll chat with the doctor on the following Monday. And in between, we'll just keep on living.

  1. Mike and Lynne,

    Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and praying for you. I stopped by to see if there was an update from the latest CT scan. I'll continue to lift both of you to the Father and keep you in that "bubble" of prayer.

    Love you guys!
