If at first you don't succeed.......

Today the catheter insertion that goes into the heart was not going smoothly and was causing too much pain, so the doctor rescheduled it for tomorrow morning so Andrea could be under sedation. MDA may not be perfect, but they will at least stop, reassess and try again.
Wednesday will be the first dose of out patient chemo, and Friday will be the chemo in the spine that continues her treatment for the central nervous system, even though the lesion in the brain is gone. If it sounds like Andrea is getting the one-two boxing punch, well, she is.
So, yes, all friends and family where ever you may be, we ask for prayers of strength and healing. And of course, passing on the prayer chain is always welcome. Faith in our Lord is great.

Bob and Kathy,
I want you to know that we will be thinking and praying for a complete recovery for Andrea this week for the chemo treatment and for the bone marrow transplant to be a complete success. God does grant miracles and answers our prayers of healing. I will introduce this request to our bible study here in Beijing so that you will have another 10 prayer warriors praying for Andrea and her husband also during this time. I also pray for your strength and faith be replenished as you support and stay with her.
In our prayers,
Eileen and Bill McKenney
