Tuesday my Mom had her 2nd round of chemo. Yesterday she received the results of her tumor marker test from the blood work they did on Tuesday. The marker went up to 151. This was not the news we were hoping for. It didn’t rise at the high rate as it had been, but with the chemo it really should have dropped.
So, in two weeks she will have another tumor marker test done and they will see if the chemo is having any affect at all. If not they will look at changing what they are doing before her 3rd chemo treatment.
I know many of you keep up with her from this blog, so I wanted to let you know the latest. Thank you so much for praying for her. We know that regardless of what Doctors and medicines say and do, we can count on a very Heavenly Father that loves us and has our best interest at heart. I am grateful that we have Him to trust in every outcome.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
