Matthew and I went to see his oncologist today. Matthew had gained 1 1/2 pounds and the doctor was very positive about his exam and how Matthew is looking. Praise the Lord for HIs blessings!
Surprisingly, a Petscan is already scheduled for tomorrow (Friday). We go back to the doctor for results next Wednesday (Oct. 15).
We are so anxious to see how Matthew has progressed after 3 more rounds of his "new" chemo regimen. He's now had a total of 5 rounds since July. ( A "round" consists of a combination of 3 chemo medications taken each day for 5 days taking approx 3 1/2 to 4 hours to administer. Two meds are given directly into the bloodstream through Matthew's port. The 3rd is a capsule taken by mouth)
The results of his scans this summer after only 2 rounds were amazing as you recall. That was such a miracle from the Lord; a tremendous answer to many, many prayers. We are trusting the Lord for continued healing this time.
I'll keep in touch when we have more to share. We are so humbled by your love and your committment to pray for Matthew and our family. Thank you.
