Marathon Week!

Matthew has made it through marathon chemo week!! He started this round of treatments on Tuesday, Jan. 2nd & finished Fri., Jan. 5th. Each day began at 8:30 a.m. and lasted until 3:30 p.m. On Saturday, he got his Neulasta shot which builds the white cells to bolsted his immune system that the chemo destroys. The side effects of the week has mainly been extreme fatigue and weakness with some nausea yesterday and today. We are praying things don't get any worse over the next few days.
We are so proud of Matthew. He is SO courageous!!
We see the doctor on Tuesday and will update then. Right now his next treament is scheduled for Jan. 23rd.
Thanks for your continued love and support. We trust the Lord daily for each challenge. We are blessed!!

Hey Matt,
You're in my thoughts daily. I can't imagine the chemo treatments because I haven't been through anything like that before. I do know you are strong in the Lord. You have a lot of people praying for you daily. I bet you can feel their prayers. I pray for mom and dad because I know if they could, they would much rather it be them than you. Someday you'll understand the love a parent has for their child. Take care and God Bless you Matt,
Pat Aylor
