Loodking for my Prayer Warriors again

sandieflNovember 1, 2013

Needing more prayers for Jim. Two weeks ago Jim had two blockages in his right leg. One in the left. He had had Peripheral Artery surgery before. This time he ended up with blood clots. He was in ICU for 3 days and then came home on the fifth day. That seems to be doing well. Last week he had a PET Scan to see if the Chemo that he was getting was working. We went to the Cancer Center yesterday and were told that there was some good news and some bad news. Some of the areas that they were treating him for were either gone or not progressing. Bad news, there were some other concerns now. We went an education on the new more aggressive treatment. It sounds like there will be more side effects than what he got from the first treatment. I have been through an aggressive Chemo treatment so I have an idea what he will be going through and hopefully will be able to help him. Please keep Jim in your prayers.

Jim is in my prayers also. Just be very carefull when they start changing the chemo treatments. Be aware of the side effects. Go on line and read the information for yourself. Before DH passed away, they had to change his treatment and it did have some very serious side effects. He had to have the old one, plus the new one and it really did a number on him before he passes away.
I truly wish you the best. Do as much research, ask questions of everyone involved, even the nurses.
Good luck
Marie

Does he have a kindle to pass the time during chemo? My dad (79) really enjoyed his during chemo and when he felt like laying in bed days after.

Thank you for your prayers. We had an education meeting today with the nurses,and I have been doing nothing but reading since then. I have had Cancer twice and gone through Chemo, but this is so much scarier for me. I know that I have to be strong for him. He had no side effects from the first medicines but I know that he will have a lot more to deal with now. I have my friends and family and Prayer Warriors so I am trying to stay positive through this.
