|Sabine and our son, "Zeke" just before his journey took him|
to Guatemala. Zeke came home for Christmas and stayed
for awhile to see that mom's chemo went okay.
I think I updated the present. Sabine's numbers started climbing this summer (but had a whole summer off without chemo). We predicted Dr Sheehan would start an intervention this fall -- and he did.
We started a two week cycle of Velcade + dexamethasone, with a week off.
After this first cycle the chemo knocked Sabine's rising number down almost to the normal range.
Dr Sheehan decided to do one more Velcade/dex cycle and see what happens.
So, that's where we are today -- in the second cycle -- we had to cancel our trip south this winter because of the chemo cycle which requires us to go into UW Hospital two days a week for the Velcade which is administered by IV drip.
Sabine continues exercising and being her wonderfully happy self. She is a little tired, but doing well.
I have gotten my book into the publisher and also doing well.
God is good and will provide.
New Year's Blessings to all of you!
