What the...?

Well, Macy asked me to update everyone today.  It has been a crazy and somewhat confusing day.  On Monday, Macy went in for her check up and they took some blood just to make sure she was still on the right course.  Well, at about 8:30 AM today, she called me and was very upset.  The nurse called and said her number was back UP to 14!!  So, we had to go see the doctor and talk through the options.  So here is what we know...

Macy did a CT scan today to make sure the cancer is what it is and to just dot the "i" and cross the "t".  If all is "normal" and the number is still in that range, which the doctor expects, then Macy will be starting a new chemo treatment on Monday.  This chemo will be a little more intense and with more possible side effects.  Also, she will go in every day for a week to get the chemo and then will have a week with nothing, and so forth.  Again, once we reach the zero point, she will get about two more treatment weeks past that.

We don't know if this is same or new or what.  Basically, the false positive that was hanging at 7 or 8 seems to have not been right or for whatever reason Macy's cancer seems to be hanging on and fighting back.  So the doctor is going to a second bullet.

Please pray for Macy.  This was obviously a very emotional and hard day, but really, we just want her to truly be done and on the road to remission.  So pray that this agent does the job and does it quickly.  Pray that she gets to zero and that it stays gone.  And pray for her strength-emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

I love my wonderful wife very much and I admire her so much for how she has fought this fight and I am so awestruck at how God has worked in her life and in our marriage and in our family and family of friends.

Thank you for your prayers and support and love.
