We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends! Since the last time I wrote an update, Tyler has completed 2 more cycles of chemotherapy. These last 2 cycles have been a different regimen chemo meds than his first 8 cycles. These drugs have been easier on his blood counts and he has not had to have any blood or platelet transfusions with them, so that is great! His main side effects have been stomach-related, but he has been able to do more things he likes to do and feels generally better than the other cycles. He has even starting to grow back his eyebrows and eyelashes!
We will go back to MD Anderson in Houston next week for a PET scan where we will see how his cancer is continuing to respond with the chemo. I will post the results soon after we receive them from his doctor! Thank you so much for all of your prayers and positive thinking! I have provided a list of specific prayer requests for those who would like to see what our immediate needs are.
Specific Prayer Requests:
- Safe travels to MD Anderson next week
- Good results with PET scan
- Tyler and Diane continue to stay healthy during the "sick" season
- Tyler and Diane have a smooth transition working to sell their house in Enid
