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.

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
