Dates have significance… February 25. When the specialist made the appointment for February 25th, Ray and I looked at each other and thought maybe, just maybe that is a good thing! See, that is the date of Tressa’s birthday…Tressa went to be with Jesus when she was six… Tressa is Ray’s first born little one…
The last month with Elotuzamab has been a rough one. Ray was really, really sick; nausea, temperature, headache, dizziness…diarrhea, pink eye, stomach flu…basically one long ugh month… He was hoping that meant it was working, but … it. Wasn’t.
The specialist decided today to move to the nuclear option. In patient chemotherapy; five days out of 28, beginning on Monday. Our hope is great; the risks are increased… life is precious…God. Is. Still. Faithful.
All my troubles melt like lemon drops.
Way above the chimney tops,
That is where you will find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow,
If birds can fly over the rainbow,
Then why, oh why can’t I
