Chemo # 23 - done. We say the days of chemo (and many days following) are like walking in the valley of darkness, and this arctic blast is like the exclamation point to that statement! Good days follow though, thank God!
We broke ranks with our parish on Ash Wednesday and went to a parish that offers an outdoor service, A.K.A. "Drive Through ashes." There was quite a line down the street of others who appreciated the lenten reminder of ashes without having to expend the energy and brave the cold to receive it! John does have his own Eucharist Minister/good friend, Patrick, visit every now and then as well. Visits from friends and family near and far (Harvey/California made another trip!) are always uplifting, comforting, and appreciated.
John continues to beat the odds, CA 19-9 (tumor marker) has decreased again to 210. That's still a high number but we, and the staff at the infusion center, get really excited each time there is a lower reading. CT Scan this coming Wednesday, hoping for all to go well, looking for more shrinkage!
Prayers abound. Thanks for the love and support! XO
