A brief "visit" at home

Matthew and I returned from Houston on February 20th. He has been hit pretty hard with his new chemo (peg interferon) but has improved this past week. The doctor had told him that he would probably develop a "tolerance" to the chemo and feel better as he continued the drug. Fortunately, that has happened. He still sleeps quite a bit to fight the fatigue from the radiation treatments he had in Jan & Feb.

I arrived home sick with an upper respiratory virus & ear infection. Been on 2 antibiotics and can't seem to kick it. I return to the doctor this week for some additional advice. Gotta get better because....

We return to Houston on March 28 - Palm Sunday. Matthew will have scans and tests on the 29th & 30th. We will see the doctors on the 31st for the test results and to determine what the next step will be. I'll send you information as soon as we have it.

Thank you so much for your continued prayers. That's what helps us meet the challenges of each day.
