Dear friends of JohnD, I have to admit that these posts are getting harder to write. Today we went to Monmouth Medical for a lumbar puncture to try to collect cells so Dr. Cohen could see if there was a different type of cancer present and treat it accordingly. The procedure was aborted because the interventional radiologist felt it was too risky due to the location of brain tumors in relation to the spine. We then went on to the radiation department to begin the 10 round series of daily treatments to try and decrease the pain and effects from the brain tumors which are increasing due to cancer in meningeal fluid. Not a pleasant experience after radiation, to say the least. Holding out hope that it will have a more positive effect as time goes by.
Thank you for all of the offers to help, we are good for now. Prayers are always accepted!
If you haven't already seen, here's the link to John's Living Last Supper portrayal of Andrew the Apostle: http://www.trentonmonitor.com/main.asp?SectionID=5&SubSectionID=148&ArticleID=15185 He really held it together to be a part of this with his brother apostles!
...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint...
