Scan results

The scan results came over the weekend. Not as promising as we were praying for...the tumors didn't shrink, but, they didn't grow either. They are hoping to add the 4th medicine to give the treatment the "boost" it may need to do its work.

The 4th medicine has the side effect of not allowing wounds to heal. Since Tyler still has a trach and 3 or 4 drainage tubes, and is still recovering from a major stomach surgery, they are worried about incorporating this one in the mix. The cancer doctors are pushing for it, but need the surgical team's approval to add this one into his regimen.

Tyler is still dealing with pneumonia as well.  

Please pray for comfort and peace for Michelle and Tyler. Pray for healing for Tyler. Please also continue to pray for great wisdom for the doctors as they are making these decisions.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

Philippians 4:4-8 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
