About Bruce
Bruce had an appointment with his onc today and we got the results from his CT/PET scan.
~ the tumors are still there in his left shoulder
~ the tumors have grown some more
~they want to keep an eye on the tumors
~CT scans will be repeated in 3 months

About me
~I've had nausea, vomiting and a lot of pain all week. Although these things could be caused by a number of things (like cancer, chemo side-effects, etc), there's a good possibility that they're being caused by rapid break-down of the tumors.

Bad News

~ It looks like I may have reached my maximum prescription coverage for the year! Any more prescriptions will have to be paid out of pocket.

I had blood work done today, an appointment with my onc and the first treatment of the new chemo I've started. Yesterday (Wed. morning), I started using the new pain patch, which I think is responsible for some of the new sleepiness and foggi-braininess I'm experiencing, and is also responsible for some new word-making-up I'm doing! LOL

Remember when I'd complain about only getting 2-3 hours sleep per 24 hour period? Well, now I'm complaining because I'm only AWAKE about 3 hours out of every 24! Please be praying that the new chemo (which I'll be starting on Thursday) will work and, as a result, I'll be able to start cutting back on the narcotics I'm taking for pain.

Please be praying for Bruce too. He's scheduled to have a carotid artery ultrasound done tomorrow and he'll also be having blood work done.

God is still providing for us and, despite the pain I've had this past week, He's been reassuring me that I'm not alone.

Yesterday, we had a snow storm with a heavy, wet snow, which was topped with ice. Sam plowed our drive-way with his truck and then Eric finished it off with his ATV. I'm not quite sure how she managed to do it, but Brittany shoveled our walk.

Yesterday, we received another bill for $140 from the hospital, for another co-pay. Today, we unexpectedly received $150.

This evening, Ron and Sheri, provided us with pizza for supper.

Every day there are easily hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of people praying for me. Many of these prayer warriors are people I don't even know.

Thank You God!
