Heading into the battle again!

Madeleine’s Blog

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
Isaiah 41:10

Thank you to all who are being such an encouragement, and thank you for your prayers - let's keep it going!

I am going to keep adding details to this same post as they come in - the most recent updates will be at the top of the post.

9/20/12 pm: Madeleine is so excited after her appointment with Dr. G - This time she will not have to take the chemo pills that have given her so much trouble in the past! Instead, she will get to have the same medication...except it will be given through her central line instead. What a difference this will make. :)
She has now made it through having her central line put in, and is heading back to her hospital room. Thanks for the prayers!
Waiting at Starbucks

9/20/12 am: Madeleine and her mom & dad flew down to Riverside last night and had a good night's rest. This morning there will be blood work and then an appointment at 11 am with the oncologist, Dr. Gailani. Here is a pic of Madeleine and her mom waiting at Starbucks this morning.

9/19/12: Encouragement written by Amanda on her own blog (she is the fellow melanoma and biochemo friend that we met the last time we were down in Riverside):
Attention prayer warriors!! My beautiful friend Madeleine is heading back into battle tomorrow (round 5). Please pray for a good week, no side effects & awesome results. She's truly an inspiration to me as a fellow fighter. Please keep her in your prayers (she's a believer in the Master Healer, as I am). Good night world & sleep in peace, Madeleine.  (from Amanda)
