Just want to let everyone know, James drain tube is out.  The next step is an appointment with our fav, Doc C and chemo next Wednesday.  We decided to delay to allow James to celebrate the holidays before starting chemo.  All is well for us.  James is soaking up plenty duck hunting for now because it will all come to a halt when chemo starts.
Please pray the chemo cleans up any microscopic cancer cell in James' body and we can return to life as "normal" soon!  
Be blessed my sweet blog followers!

Luke 1:30-31
30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

Roller coaster continues...

This cancer roller coaster continues for us.  James' surgery was a success...that was an up.  The AFP is still high...that's a low.  He is going back on chemo...that's the round and round.  What's next?
We take the good with the bad so we are gearing up for James to start chemo again as soon as the drain tube is removed.  This year really has been a roller coaster ride...keep your hands and arms in side the cart at all times, fasten your belts...the ride continues...

Long overdue...

Forgive me, I am long overdue.  Here's a quick post:
  • James has recovered well from surgery.  He still has the drain tube until at least Wednesday when we see Dr. Curley again.  Blood work, liver function and protein levels looked great at his last visit this past Wednesday.
  • He had scans yesterday.  The surgeon will review to make sure the infection is gone and the liver is close to, if not fully, regenerated.
  • We will see our favorite doc on Monday to determine what is next.  More chemo is possible.  The surgeon is confident he got everything but it is possible microscopic cells remain in James' body.  We will discuss everything with Dr. Coscio on Monday. 
  • We are approaching one year since James' diagnoses.  It has been a long, hard road but we haven't gone through it alone. We are blessed beyond words. 
Put a little love in your heart and bless someone this Christmas!  Let a stranger see Christ in you! 
Love, love, love you all!
