Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

~1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)~



Today, I want to share a brief update on the last two days of appointments with David.

Monday, we met with a different oncologist because David’s oncologist was in a different clinic that day.  We were told there is a possible change in treatment since the Procrit is not working as hoped.  David’s oncologist will make the decision, possibly next week.  We have talked to some health professionals and read up on it to learn about the possible treatment.  We are waiting to see what the doctor and God have planned.

Tuesday, we saw our regular eye doctor as a follow up to the emergency visit to the eye clinic.  David lost some of his vision in one eye Friday a week ago.  We know now he is regaining sight in that eye, but time will tell how much it improves.  We heard the term “eye stroke” for the first time.  That brought some new questions.  We are optimistic about the next appointment in four weeks.  We are not at the point of seeing the retina specialist again at this point.

God has provided wonderful and intelligent professionals for David.  We have been blessed.  Despite all the problems, we are enjoying seeing God guide us through them.  God is using many family members, church friends, long-time friends, and neighbors to encourage us regardless of the issues.  We are so thankful He is in charge and creates the plan.  We are making the most of the journey.  Thank-you to all who have helped us travel on this journey in so many ways.

David – I hate to ask for prayers again, but something else has happened to David.  We had three medical appointments last week.  On the way home yesterday, he told me his vision wasn’t right.  That led to the fourth doctor visit!  The lower half of the field of vision in the right eye was not there.  Instead, everything was black.  We went to a doctor.  By the time we got in, the black area was fuzzy.  After all the retina surgeries he has had, I knew we had to get attention.  The doctor said something in a blood vessel moved through his eye, but it seemed to be better.  Testing of his vision was done.  We go back on the 19th, unless we need to go again sooner.  The field of vision is almost normal this morning.  We thank God for that.  Please continue to pray for David, and me, as we seem to deal with one issue after another.  God is faithful to walk each step of this journey with us.




Tonight is the proper time to change your clocks forward!
