Fiddy

Last weekend was my parents’ 50th anniversary.  What an impressive milestone.  The day was affectionately themed “Fiddy”, slang for”fifty” as I had to explain several times.  We are 18 months away from our 25th. I vividly remember my parents’ 25th. Time flies.  I so look forward to growing old with my wife. I cannot imagine it any other way.

From the exam, the doctor is encouraged that the lymph nodes are continuing to shrink. They are not detectable by feel any longer. The CA125 is going down too.  The white blood cells were up bit so Tara was able to have treatment Monday. It was over three weeks since her last one. While the treatment seems to be working, the infrequency of them means the chemo will go on through the summer. Evidently the amount of chemo administered is related to the length of remission.  Keep treating!

Just tonight Tara has started to feel the effects of the drugs. It could be a long few days. These are times that remind us that we are dependent on something other than our own strength; Tara physically and me emotionally.  We need something powerful this week and we are encouraged that we have what we need; that the eyes of our hearts know the HOPE to which he has called us, the riches of his glorious inheritance, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, Edited from Ephesians 1:18-21.
