An Update From Lindsey
We want to thank everyone for all of their love, prayers, and support! If there is one thing we have learned, its that prayers really do work! Jonathan reads all your sweet notes, and they really brighten his day. The second round of chemo was only a one day treatment, but the medicines were a little more intense. These new medicines have taken a greater toll on Jonathan's body with fatigue, nausea, and weakness. He is getting stronger every day, but we are reminded daily that these treatments are toxic and they do not leave a good impression on the body...except for killing the bad stuff! Overall though, he has handled the treatments better than we could have hoped for, and we make sure to thank God everyday for this huge blessing. We will be going back to see Dr. Tu tomorrow at 11:30. They will do more blood work to see how well the cancer has responded to this last round. We believe that there will be more good news, and we will be sure to update everyone with those results! There is a chance he could start the 3rd round of chemo tomorrow night, and it would be the longest and most intense treatment yet. Please pray that God gives Dr. Tu wisdom and guidance with how to proceed with this next treatments. Please keep praying and believing for a complete healing!! We can't thank you all enough for the tremendous support we feel everyday!
