Friday is the Day

Andrea goes in for blood tests on Thursday, and if everything checks out good as it did Monday, then she gets the methotrexate chemotherapy in the spinal tap on Friday morning. Like I said before, she just wants to get on with the prescribed treatment and be done with it because she is feeling better. She does feel tired and fatigued, but that can be attributed to the chemo effects that last quite a while after it is given. Her MRI of the the brain this week looks very good, so they are confident the headaches were from low red blood cells. Thanks for your prayers, God listens!

What a difference a few days make!! This is wonderful news. As much as I don't wish for chemo for anyone, that's how much I hope she can have it on Friday to get on with the rest of the treatment. I am so happy she is feeling better. I will keep praying and praying.

Love, Carolyn
