Round 11 Continues

Loved Ones,

Round 11 continued today. Ray was less tired than usual and he seemed to have more of an appetite. We'll see if that changes; it will be interesting to see what side effects come from this chemo without the other.

We are doing our best not to worry about what this new development will mean! Especially since we won't know for three weeks!

In the meantime, we are maximizing Ray's eating while he has an appetite! Pumpkin is the food of choice for Ray and our neighbor brought us pumpkin bread and dip! Yum! Plus, our pumpkin soup came today so we are defrosting our first bag! We can't wait for that!

We pray and pray for healing for Ray.

"May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;

may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
We will shout for joy when you are victorious

and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;

he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,

(or we could say chemo and doctors...)
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God."
Psalm 20:1,2, 4-7

not alone and not afraid --
kristin and ray
