As many of you know, we had our meeting with Sabine's hemotologist/oncologist, Dr Sheehan, today.

Sabine has been on a 10-week "rest" since her last chemotherapy session. The break was to see how the cancer would react without the chemotherapy (Velcade and dexamethasone).

We got the lab report back last week (and I thought it looked pretty good!) but Dr Sheehan thought it looked even better.

He said, "As of now, we have got the cancer under control!"

He suggested we check back in another six weeks to see how the "numbers" look. And, as for now, there will not be another round of chemotherapy.

Praise God! and thank you all for your love and prayers!

Hope to see some of you at the Mt Horeb "Relay for Life" -- starting at 6 p.m. this coming Friday at Grundahl Park, just south of Highway ID.

This Friday is also the day we finish our home dialysis training and the staff at the dialysis center meets us at the cottage and we set up and do "home dialysis" that day. A busy week!
