Dear CSN Friends,
Tonight we received sad news about my husband's latest CT scan results. After six chemo sessions of cisplatin/etopiside and WBR, the masses in his lungs and lesions in his liver had reduced almost by 75%. It has only been 2 1/2 months and the cancer has begun to progress again. He will be starting a new type of chemo next week. He tolerated the first chemo very well, WBR did knock him down pretty bad, but just in the last 2-3 days had begun to feel so much better. He even built a small deck today!
After the news I asked him what he was feeling, and he said, as if a door just shut in my face. I was just getting to feel better and looking forward to some time for us, he said. I could see how dejected he was feeling. I told him that what I felt was that the good Lord had helped him get strong quickly and soon so that he could be ready for the battle. Imagine if this had happened 3 weeks ago! They may not have even been able to give him the chemo with how weak he was. So he is blessed.
I ask for your prayers that God bless him with strength, courage, love and mercy and healing. For me, I ask for strength, courage and energy that I may stand beside him and wage battle with him.
May you all be blessed and all your prayers answered.
My husband's name is Dennis.
