Brief Update to the Previous Brief Update

There is good news and not-so-good in my last couple trips to the doctor. I mentioned my low white blood cell count in the last post. It needs to be above 5 before I can continue chemotherapy. It was at 1.2 on Tuesday but the good news is that it was up to 3.2 today. Please keep praying that it will continue rising above 5 by next week so that chemo can continue on schedule on March 27th. The other piece of good news is that I have lost 10-12 pounds of water weight. I still have about 20 to go but it seems to be steadily decreasing. I also had a slight infection on the nephrostomy site so now I am taking an antibiotic. That needs to clear up before the next chemo session as well. Joyce and I appreciate your prayers very much. We believe God has led me to this very group of doctors, but ultimately, God is the Healer.
