Good morning! What an incredibly beautiful day here in East Tennessee! I hope you have the same where you are.
Although there is not much NEW news, I want to update you on Matthew. He has continued to do well on his new medication with one exception. For the last two weeks, his white count has been low so the doctor has decreased his cancer medication dosage to see if that will take care of it. He returns next Wednesday for another check on his bloodwork. Hopefully by then, his white count will have increased.
Matthew has not felt as well the past two weeks and we are wondering if the blood count is a contributing factor. He still eats pretty well and is able to get out occasionally for walks and to see friends. He drove himself to the doctor on Wednesday and did just fine.
Some fun news is that Matthew was able to go to Nashville with friends and their family last weekend to hear a comedian. They were gone Sat. and Sun. Although some parts of the trip were rough on him, Matthew had a great time. I think this week has been a bit of a recovery time from the weekend!
We will go to New York the first week of June for scans to see the progress that this medication has made on the cancer. We are praying for great results!
We are so thankful for the time at home to rest and be with friends. "There's no place like home." God bless you all!! Love, Nancy
