Just a short up-date today.

Yesterday I started my new chemo, along with a flu shot, IV fluids and steroids. The steroids always make me feel like King Kong for a couple of days but not this time. I slept through most of the treatment and came home and slept the whole afternoon. We also decided to stop the Tarceva oral chemo that we started from DNA results a few months ago. The CT scan I had on Tuesday of this week showed that the lung tumor had grown which is a direct indication that the Tarceva, which is targeting a receptor on lung cancer in not effective for my tumor.

I slept from early evening to late morning this morning. I met with my small group of Art, Mike, and Skip Dupar for a couple of hours this morning. I was exhausted by the end of our time together and went back to bed.

Heather just took me back to the oncologist to get my Newlasta, WBC stimulator and another PT test.

Today is definitely another one of those “Tired of….” kind of days. Back to bed for now.

God is good, all the time, all the time, God is good.

    Praying for a renewed body and spirit when you wake up. I pray that God will strengthen you and bless you, and that your sleep will be healing. I pray that you will be comforted and encouraged by the Lord Jesus, who had so many “tired of” days because of our sin.

    We love you and pray for you often,

    Holly, Dave, and Judah
