We Are Home!!!

Sorry I haven’t updated sooner, but it’s been a busy 24 hours!  We got home last night around 10pm.  Unfortunately, Greg didn’t sleep as well as we had hoped that he would.  He continues to have night sweats which wake him up often during the night.  He is also having lots of itching, which is another side effect of the chemo.  He is still having some pain and achiness.  Fortunately, no fever!  His appetite has been a little better today.

I’ve been busy trying to get appointments and labs set up with a local oncologist.  Greg will have to have labs drawn twice a week until we go back for another round of biochemo.  As of now, we are scheduled to return for the next round on June 11.  I’m sure this will be a quick two weeks at home!  Praying that Greg’s counts stay up and temperature stays down, so that we don’t have to make a visit to the ER.  We are also praying that he is able to start the next round in a much healthier state.

Thank you so very much for praying us through these last couple of weeks……it has been very difficult for all of us.  Please continue to pray for us as the Lord brings our family to your minds.

These are our current prayer requests:

1. That our family would handle our current circumstances in a way that pleases the Lord and points others to Him.

2. That Greg’s appetite would continue to increase.

3. That Greg’s temperature would stay down.

4. That we would be able to get all of the issues taken care re: getting labs drawn and results to MD Anderson in a timely manner.

5. That all of Greg’s counts would be okay, and he would not need transfusions of any type.

6. That Greg would remain infection-free.

” In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.”   Psalm 94:19

Trusting His Plan,

Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob

    Will be praying for you all this morning. I can only imagine how incredible it is to be HOME. Praise God for your journey back and a night in your own bed. I’m sure the children was so thrilled to have you home too!!!
