“If God gives us wealth and property                                                  and lets us enjoy them,                                                              we should be grateful and                                                    enjoy what we have worked for.

It is a gift from God.”

Ecclesiastes 5:19 GNT

Chemo round 1…Done ✅

Journal entry by Ellen VandeVuss — 

Chemo round 1 is done.  Last week Daddy got chemo 3 days in a row, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Thankfully he has had no side effects from it yet.  In fact on Wednesday he seemed to have more energy and was very talkative.  The nurse told us on Thursday that there were steroids in the first day medication.  Regardless it was a welcomed change and we all enjoyed the afternoon.  After the second and third day he did not have the burst of energy, but he had no complaints.

He does not complain of being in as much pain now, and we are thankful for that.  He is having a little trouble walking because of his leg that is swollen.  The swelling in his leg did seem to improve after chemo but has not gone away completely.

We plan to enjoy the next two weeks with only one doctor appointment and weekly blood work.  The second round of chemo is scheduled for August 1,2,3.  This is what we know for sure.  We have learned that things can change quickly.  For now the plan is for him to have another scan after the second round of chemo and see how the chemo is working.  We will have an appointment with Dr. Rameriz (the neuroendocrine specialist) after the scan to determine the next steps.

We cannot thank you enough for all of your prayers.  Please continue, and join us in thanking God for the good days that he is having.

May the Lord bless you.  May you enjoy the good things that come all the days of your life.  
Psalm 128:5
