Doctor is stopping chemo. He said the progress has leveled off and wants to try radiation beads (Y90) in his liver. Upon review of the MRI he is still not a candidate for surgery. We are waiting for a call from hospital to get him scheduled for the beads which is two out patient procedures 4-6 weeks apart. They do one lobe in the liver at a time. At about 6 weeks after the 2nd one they’ll scan and see how things look. We are celebrating getting rid of chemo symptoms for a nice little stretch. Please pray for his hands and feet to recover from neuropathy (numbness) and his taste buds to return along with his appetite. Down the road we could restart chemo but for now they are focused on targeting the liver and continue to make progress. Of course all of this will be scheduled around baseball and soccer. We have 3 out of town weekend trips for soccer in a row then 3 in June so we don’t have time for cancer!
We had an amazing Easter weekend celebrating Russell’s confirmation! We are beyond blessed, beyond proud of these brave kids of ours and focusing on positive aspects of this journey while asking God to show us his plan and help us be obedient in trusting him fully.
