So do not fear, for I am with you
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God
I will strengthen you and help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Let's just say that we all breathed a sigh of relief when her Monday morning blood tests showed that her white counts were already good again! So...off with the masks, and on to enjoying her family, friends, and pets (the pets hadn't been cooperating too well with the mask-wearing rule...). She still has to avoid being around anyone who is sick, but being able to relax a little really helps.
Now Madeleine will just be working on recovering, and then her next PET scan is scheduled for September 7th. The outcome of that scan will determine what she does from here (more of the same treatment? a different treatment? a break from treatment?). So, we would really appreciate your continued prayers that this treatment would really be effective on her cancer, and that she would continue to gain strength as she recovers from this latest round of treatment.
