Dad Update 11-19-07

As always, thank you for your continued prayers for my Dad. Mom called this morning to tell me that dad will be in the hospital for at least one week. He received an "IV push" this morning and will continue to receive those every Monday through December 10th. He will have some form of chemo every day through Saturday. He will then begin to receive chemo pills on November 26th. Beginning the week of December 3rd he will receive nuprigin every week through December 19th. If his blood counts cooperate, we expect he should be able to go home every now and then after Monday. However, we really don't have any idea how any of this is going to play out. We do know that they will not be looking at the stem cell transplant until at least sometime after the 19th of December. We continue to pray and trust that God will use this set of treatments to beat this disease.

Please pray that he will be able to eat some during all of this as he is still quite thin and weak. Please pray that the chemo will be effective and he will beat this thing! Please pray that infection will stay away as well as complications. Please pray for their spirits. Pray that God will provide them with the strength that they need. Mom asked that any questions and requests for updates be filtered through me as dad is too weak to talk and she's just really not up to updating everyone at this time. Thank you all for your prayers.

We pray you have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving as we know we do.
