Dear Friends and Family,
I had the CT and Bone Scan done yesterday. All went well, and I also saw the oncology dietitian because I have not been able to regain any appetite after the fourth chemo. I have been more fatigued this time. She wants me to consume more protein and calories. It’s hard because I just have no desire to eat, but I am making a huge effort to do so. I see the doctor again on Friday and then have my fifth chemo next Tuesday, June 24.
This morning the oncology clinical coordinator called to give me the results of yesterday’s testing. All was excellent. Cancer was not found in any other parts of the body. I had been have abdominal pain this week, but the CT showed that I have diverticulitis and the doctor is ordering the meds necessary for that. I have not had a case of that for more than 10 years and with the results of the testing, I think that is little to worry about!!! I am rejoicing in the good report and thank God for His goodness and faithfulness to us.
The report also stated that the tumors are more than 50% smaller than when scanned in March.
Just wanted to share the good news with you. We will be traveling to TN this weekend to celebrate the 60th Wedding Anniversary of Sheridan’s parents. It will be a good weekend for me since the days just before chemo are my strongest. It will be nice to spend time with all the family and see everyone again. Mrs. Stanton is celebrating her 80th birthday this weekend also.
Thanks for your prayers and the many expressions of love and support. We love you!
