The doctor confirmed that Jenifer has an infection from the radiation. She is being treated with antibiotics and going home tonight. She will follow up with the oncologist on Monday before her chemotherapy. Thank you for praying. We appreciate your continued prayers.

Jenifer is heading to West Des Moines ER. She’s been experiencing radiation burns the past few weeks. They’re not getting better and seem to be spreading. Please pray the doctors have wisdom in assessing and treating her. We will keep you posted as we pray together.

It’s been a busy few weeks for me. I had several tests run for my three month checkup. Tomorrow will be my last one with a brain MRI. I’ll have results from that on Thursday.

My latest scans showed some cancer growth in the under arm, neck and thorax regions. Therefore, my oncologist referred me back to the radiologist, who recommended another three weeks of radiation. That started today and will run every Monday through Friday for three weeks.

Chemotherapy still runs every three weeks. With the brain MRI tomorrow, I’ll follow up later this week with its results.

Thank you for holding me up in prayer

Bloodwork ... meet with Oncology for results on several of my 3 month tests ... 2 more rounds of chemotherapy ... And that’s just my morning. 🙃


Your prayers welcomed.


To God be the Glory!

Good morning. As I write to you it’s just a little past 5:00am. Sleep eluded me all night so I finally gave up trying.

In a little bit I will head to church with my father, where he will be greeting and praying with anyone that drives up to him in the parking lot. This is the third week doing so and the numbers of visitors continue to grow. No doubt because we all crave human attention and care.

It’s been far too long since I’ve written to you. My path with cancer still plods on. I’ve had several rounds of chemotherapy. Have once again passed a three month checkup. The cancer remains currently arrested. Shrinking some, not growing or spreading anywhere new.

It’s more than I can ask for, that’s for certain. Later this month I’ll undergo more chemotherapy, a CAT scan and a brain MRI. The latter two to determine if the cancer remains arrested. I’ll also have a follow up echocardiogram and follow up appointment with my cardiologist. This, to be certain my heart is not harmed by all the chemo.

As a side note, my address has changed. Mail can now be sent to me at 504 15th Avenue SW, Altoona, Iowa 50009.

God is faithful and always on the move in my life.  Not the least of which because of your steadfast prayers. Thank you!

In His confidence and for His Glory Alone,

Jenifer

From Dad:
Rejoice with us: Jenifer received very positive news today from her Oncologist.  Her scans showed “There has been extraordinarily positive response to treatment since the 
previous examination.”  He said her cancer is “dormant”, and her bones have begun to re-build in areas where the cancer has receded.  Chemotherapy now changes  to “maintenance”. He expects her issues with pain, and trouble walking, will be significantly helped by diet and drinking more water.  Still a long way to go, but we Praise the Lord for answered prayer, and Thank You all for taking her needs to the Throne of Grace.

Over the last few weeks Jenifer has had various scans taken. Last week she met with her oncologist and radiologist to review the findings. Both doctors said everything looks excellent! The cancer that remains is still responding well to the chemo. At this point they see no need to do any additional radiation (which is rare for her diagnosis). We praise God for this amazing progress report. Jenifer will continue with two more rounds of chemo. Also, she has had a much better week regarding the pain in the legs! Thank you for your continued prayers!

Jenifer is doing much better today! Her lactic acid levels have dropped to a more stable level. The pain is more manageable and she is able to walk with the assistance of a walker. She has been released from the hospital!  She will have a home nurse and physical therapist begin visiting her several times a week to build up her strength. Thanks again for your prayers.
