I got a call from Kaiser as I was riding in an Uber to the Dallas Fort Worth airport informing me of the schedule of my immunotherapy infusions: Friday, December 3, Thursday, December 23, and Friday, January 14. All will begin at 1:00 and take the rest of the afternoon. Many times immunotherapy has little or no side effects because it stimulates the immune system. This is quite different than chemotherapy which poisons the cancer cells even more than it poisons the whole body. So my prayer is that I will be in the majority who have little negative effects.
The radiation oncologist and have a meeting Monday morning to discuss the radiation treatment for the larger melanoma spot in my brain.
In the meantime, Sherry and I are having a great time with Donn and Susan and Elizabeth and MIchael here in Kansas City. Donn and I went to the Chiefs game after church yesterday. Here is a taste of what we saw. You will hear Donn loudly in the background!
Thanks for the update! Praying
Thank you, Marlon. I am in Boise today and feel your presence!
Great to hear about your time with Donn and Susan and Elizabeth and Michael. But you and Sherry don’t do parenting or grandparenting half-way any day!
Praying for you and the family all of whom are on a holy journey of grace with new vistas and opportunities for faith.
Thank you, Kate – you are quite right: we go all in on grandparenting!!
Looks like some great steps with a plan. I’ll be praying that the therapy has a huge effect on the cancer but little effect on your energy. 🙂 Looks like a great time with family. Great seats for the game! Enjoy ETS!
Thank you, Hans. The journey has been straight forward so far. Next week will be significant revelations! Blessing to you and Mission
What a journey you are on! Prayers being uplifted daily!
Thank you, Kimberly. I deeply appreciate your prayers. We are having a great time with Donn and his family here in Kansas City. Home on Friday to continue treatment stuff next week
I’m glad you got your schedule and you have a better sense of the next steps! Praying for you today.
Thank you, Kacy. There is a lot of unknowns ahead, depending on how I react to the infusions. Wish I had a time machine!!
