Update on Our Cancer Journeys

Sheri:  She had her CAT scan yesterday (Aug 24) and started her 5th round of chemo today (25th) and tomorrow (26th).  We have nothing to share but GOOD news!  The scan shows a major shrinking of both the large and small follicular lymphoma tumors being tracked and targeted.  Doc Martin said they are at an excellent diminished level and might simply be showing up on the screen due to scar tissue.  He was encouraged and so are we!

Us-2, 2015 copyHer blood tests were again excellent indicating how well she’s tolerating the chemo.  One more chemo treatment is recommended and will happen on Sept 22 & 23.

Then Sheri must decide whether to have followup treatments with Retuxin, an immunological agent, every other month for two years.  This is NOT chemo and should have no side-effects.

Dave:  I’m doing really well and am cancer free from the esophageal cancer I started dealing with October 2014.  Energy is up.  I’m sleeping well.  Loving food.  Enjoying life and ministry.  And relishing my blog writing again.

We are very thankful to Jehovah Raphe for His healing hand on us!  And we are very thankful for your prayers and holding us in your hearts.  Your encouragement is a HUGE blessing to us both!
