Everything went smoothly and we left just after noon. We are so thankful to have this treatment behind us, the fourth of eight. These first four are likely to be the hardest, so we're hoping for an easier road for Noonie from here.
However, I have to admit that she has been stellar through this. The week after chemo slows her down considerably, but watching her regain her energy is so encouraging. In fact, in the week before chemo we both kind of forget she is a cancer patient.
Emails and cards have been coming in from all over, and we know that these represent people who love Noonie and are praying. In reality, hundreds of people are probably praying. We thank God for you and we thank God for His intervention.
As I mentioned in the last post. we found out last week that the doctor cannot feel the tumor in her lymph node, so the cancer is shrinking quickly! May God rid her of it completely.
A week from today, we leave for Houston for consultations and other appointments at MD Anderson Cancer Center. We will be there for three days, with two flying days on either end. We'll be meeting to talk through the post-chemo steps as we walk through this season.
Tonight, Noonie is resting. Hopefully a good night of sleep will give her strength for tomorrow. Every day is an adventure.
Thank you again for your prayers.
