Chemo Begins

Posted in From Al & Libbie at 2:31 pm by Al

Dear praying friends and family,

Just a quick update tonight.

Yesterday night I added chemo therapy to the targeted molecular therapy I had already been taking for a week. Good news: I have had no nausea! Many of you had told me that you had been praying for me about side effects from the chemo. Thank you! So far the prayers have been answered. Off to my next dose now.

The drug for the targeted molecular has begun to produce some predictable side-effects, however—rash, burning sensation on the soles of my feet, and arthritis-like pain in my joints and feet. So far it is tolerable.

Thanks again for all the notes, encouragement and prayer.

Blessings, Al
