Biochemo - final round!

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

Reluctantly leaving for Riverside  :)
Madeleine and her folks flew down to Riverside last night, and she is now checked into the hospital and gearing up for this next round to start. Tomorrow morning, she'll get her central line put in early, and then treatment will begin. At her appointment with Dr. Gailani today, they decided that this would be the last Biochemo treatment - which is a relief! She'll have another PET scan in early November, and those results will help determine where to go from here.

Please keep Madeleine in your prayers over these next days - especially between now and Tuesday afternoon. As I've mentioned before, this treatment is quite grueling. It takes endurance and guts, as well as lots of prayer, just to keep hanging in there. 

We are really grateful for your prayers and all your encouraging posts - thank you everyone!

Madeleine and Family,

I wish you strength as you embark on this last leg of biochemo. You are such an amazing family.....I have no doubt that you can endure this together. May you also have some peace in your bones, knowing that you are fighting the good fight, knowing that many many people are thinking of you, sending you positive energy and prayers. Hang in there.....we are all rooting for you.

Sending you strength and determination...hopefully it will help knowing this is the last biochemical treatment!!! Also sending prayers that this cancer will flee in the face of all that has been sent to destroy it; meds, prayers etc.
