Update from Trichelle

Today was the last chemo treatment!

My counts were the highest yet. We give thanks for all the answered prayers as my counts were very low last week. The treatment went well with no side effects.

Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Afterwards I had a MUGA scan of my heart. I will get the results of that test next Monday when I meet with my oncologist again.

So I have now finished chemo. I still have 14 Herceptin treatments left. (These are given at the cancer agency by IV once every three weeks.) I meet with my radiation oncologist on March 10 and then we will know exactly when I will be starting radiation. So we will send another update once we know more on that.

We have felt really upheld these past 12 weeks. These last 12 rounds of chemo thankfully did not affect me too much. And I praise God for that as I have heard of many others who had worse problems with the Taxol chemo. So we are looking forward to a month or so “off” (with only a few Herceptin appointments and doctors’ appointments.) and are praying that the radiation will go smoothly when it starts in April.

God has answered many prayers and His promises have been kept close to our hearts. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isa. 41:10).

We thank you all again for your heartfelt prayers, cards, letters, emails, meals, babysitting, gift cards and anything else that people did for us. It has been a real blessing to be on the receiving end of so many gifts. I pray that all of you were blessed in giving as well.
