Last round - update

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

Madeleine has made made it through day #3 - it hasn't been easy, but at least she's on the home stretch! Her oncologist (Dr. Gailani) has been working with her and adjusting some of the medications in order to help make it more bearable. It is still difficult, but at least the medications that have been giving her the most trouble have been adjusted. 

She needs to make it through today and tomorrow, and then...
 Wednesday will be her eighteenth birthday!!!
We will be making the 8-hour drive home that day (which won't be the type of thing most people look forward to on a special birthday), but just getting to be at home will be something to celebrate.

Keep praying for endurance, and grace to make it through. Her fellow melanoma-fighter friend, Amanda, is also here (just a couple rooms away) and is also in the midst of her own battle fighting through this treatment. We are praying for her and her family as well.
