Round three begins

GregChemo.jpgI'm sitting in the chemo chair taking round three. Round two went better than the first round - they gave me a different coctail of pre-meds before the chemo. That seemed to dampen the blow better.

Next week, I'm likely going to get a CT scan to make sure the chemo is doing something in order to continue. I'm just going to go down for the scan and come back and discuss the result with Dr. Shapiro here in Dallas. The reason for doing it at Houston is for comparative purposes with all the historical scans in their system.

I'm starting to feel the chemo now. Gonna feel crummy for a while.

Great picture but not a great circumstance. You are loved and thought of often.
Prayerfully in Him,

Some of the recipients of the Letter to the Hebrews had their homes and property plundered (10:34). Greg's body has been plundered by cancer. The Hebrew Christians received their attack with joy because of their greater "possession" of Jesus Christ for eternity. Those who have been "near" to Greg via physical or spiritual proximity have seen over three decades a similar joyful acceptance of a dissimilar but terrible evil. May we all be spurred on toward love and good deeds while we have life in us.
Praying for you bro'

Greg, I thank God for the great testimony you are through all of this. I also pray that the crumminess isn't as bad and ends sooner than you expect!

I know what you're thinking. "Did he have six shots or chemo or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum drip machine, the most powerful medical device in the world, something that'll make you wanna blow your chow clear across the room, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, yes I do, fire 'er up doc, gimme both barrels.

Ann said...

God bless, comfort and strengthen you, Greg, as well as your family.

Belle Petkas said...

We continue to pray for both of you. Keep hangin' in there.

Robin said...

Greg, It makes me sad to see you go through this and I feel privileged to know you. May you take strength from all those who love and pray for you, God, and all the angels that are around you.
