Round 11 Concludes

Loved Ones,

Round 11 concluded today. Ray is certainly feeling the effects of the chemo but it isn't as bad as usual. He is a little less tired, and has a tiny bit more appetite.

Ray's doctor called this evening with the news that the allergic reaction will indeed mean a chemo change. Both chemos will change however, as his CA-19 numbers show that the cancer has adapted to these drugs. His CA-19 has only risen slightly and is a fraction of what it once was, so they caught this very quickly.

So December 1 will mean two new chemos with different side effects and a different regime.
We'll still do the scan on the 24th but we have a preview of the results with the CA-19 numbers.

We're going to do our VERY best to enjoy these next three weeks including Thanksgiving!

We are so thankful for your prayers.

"When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid." Psalm 56:3-4

not alone and not afraid --
