Update on Trichelle

Here is another update on my niece, Trichelle, as she goes through chemotherapy.


Tuesday (Dec. 31) we received the second treatment of Herceptin and the fourth treatment of Paclitaxel. We have eight more weeks of Paclitaxel and eleven months of Herceptin planned.

It was the best chemo treatment yet as it was the first time we didn’t need a doctor’s visit for an unusual reaction while receiving chemo. We’re thankful for the prayers of many about this.

The side effects of this chemo are not as bothersome as they were with the first four rounds of chemo. So that has been a big blessing as well.

Also, Trichelle’s blood work was the highest it was yet—1.7. So that was another answer to prayer.

We are thankful for all the support and the days when we get meals.

That night we enjoyed a good dinner prepared by Dave’s former Gr. 1 teacher who just so happens to be our son Breyden’s current Gr. 1 teacher! The meal was delicious!

Thanks for the cards. Many of you have pointed us to the text Isaiah 41:10. Just today we received another card in the mail with, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you” (Isa. 41:10).

Love Dave & Trichelle
