And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. Romans 8:11 AMP

I am very happy to report that I came through week one of treatment with flying colors. (Thanks for your mighty prayers this week.) I saw Dr. Khan on Wednesday and he was pleased with my immediate blood work (high white blood cell count – which means low risk of infection and sustained strength) and we are hopeful that my blood work (sent to the lab) will already reflect a decrease in my tumor markers. At this point, there is no way to evaluate the effectiveness of the chemo. We are dependent upon outward observation, faith in the process and the preliminary blood work.
