We learned in May, decided to forego industry standard strong chemo and radiation. 2 others we learned of that started then with same diagnosis and timeframe are no longer with us. We're thankful our approach got us to today, Thanksgiving. We had been using fb and this will allow those who don't have an fb account to stay up to date. We will encourage all to look here as a one stop now. Steve has taken indefinite medical leave to care for Debby and the kids. Also, Debby's dad has come out to support us more then once while we are dealing with medical issues that keep us away from the house.
We are extremely grateful to those that are helping us directly via mail, directly to our bank or via our 'The Meredith Miracle' page on crowdrise.com - the bottom of that page gives important details. More at the Ways to Help area & link listed there too.
Many of you know Debby had surgery in mid October that needed to be redone 4 days later ending us up with a 9 day stay. A month later she is doing ok considering & well enough for us to get started on our next treatment type at a special clinic in AZ.
Yesterday was her 1st integrated treatment of low dose targeted chemo. This method uses 5 different chemo's mixed & only at a 10% amount of dosage that is typically given. It is also married with immunotherapy, IV vitamins, supplements and nutritional guidance. She was sick this AM with flu like symptoms and threw up. They told us this would show as a good sign that the 10% 5 drug mix was at work. We cannot imagine what 100% of just 1 drug would have done to her.
We love you all and thank you for your prayers nationwide. Love Steve and Debby
