Here We Go

The biotherapy has begun.  They started the IV Interleukin-2 at about 4pm.  They also gave Greg his first Interferon shot.  The Interleukin will run 24 hours a day for 4 days, and he will get one Interferon injection every day for five days.  Praying for the Lord’s mercy for minimal side effect!

Thought some of you might enjoy seeing a few pictures from the hospital.  This place is amazing and can be so overwhelming in the beginning!

There are many buildings that make up MD Anderson.  This is the "Main Building" where we are now.

It's very busy in front of the building, where people are being dropped off/picked up or waiting for their car from the valet.

Lots of people, cars, shuttles, and taxis.

There are several people that direct traffic, because it gets so congested.

So thankful that He is our Beauty in the ugliness of life.  He is our Hope and He makes ALL things beautiful!!  Please keep us in your prayers!

    I’ve had a chance to catch up now……praying even harder if that’s possible! I’ve just had a tiny taste of what y’all have been going thru….being so far from home, leaving the kids behind (and them having to handle problems), surgeries, fears, being thankful. ….it goes on and on!! My diagnosis/prognosis is NOTHING compared to what y’all are facing, but I honestly believe the Lord got us back together so we could empathize, sympathize and encourage y’all!!! When we had dinner it felt just like back in the day, didn’t it? I can’t believe how many years have passed!!

    Please give Greg a late happy birthday hug for me and tell him how much we love him! Please let me know how I can help on this end….I’ll be a little “down” for a month or so but can still help with phone calls and such if you need.

    Oh…and I can’t believe how similar it looks to Mayo as far as the transportation areas, all the wheelchairs, etc 🙂 But we don’t have the beeutiful gaardens don’t cha no 😉
