Chemo tomorrow

We were at the oncologist this morning and had all tests done for tomorrow so we are set to go........ however if it's icy we may need to borrow some ice skates to get to the hospital tomorrow. Photobucket

Please keep us in prayer. I will be receiving the chemo - inpatient - for hopefully 3 days or less. Photobucket The oncologist also dropped the fact that he may increase the time for the next chemo treatment to five days if my body tolerates it this time. He also said it will be 3- 4 treatments.He did seem very optimistic that this should take care of it but time will tell as most of the spots, currently the size of a grain of rice and smaller, will be impossible to pick up on a scan.

He also announced that he just formed our county's first Ovarian Cancer Forum or something like that and my bowling ball size tumor was their first subject of study....... I forget how many slides he said they had to look at. It was a lot. I wonder if I should get royalties from that........ Photobucket

They said we could hook up our computers Photobucket there so I may try and take a borrowed laptop in and see if I can get it to work in there so I can keep everyone updated.

We cherish your prayers! Photobucket It is often that I feel down and then remember how many people are praying and it helps a lot!

Denise, I am so sorry to hear that you have cancer. I just learned about it the other day, I haven't been good at visiting blogs.

I'll be praying for you tomorrow and this week while you undergo treatment. I will also pray for your family during this time.
