An update as promised. We got the results of the CT scan and it was a mixed bag. The doctor tells us that there is no change in the cancer since last year. The good news is that it still has not spread any further or grown any larger either. We can thank the Lord for holding the cancer in check and giving me a quality of life this past year.
I will be starting a new chemotherapy this weekend to attack the cancer in a different way. It will be in form of a pill this time and I will take it 2 times/day for 2 weeks and then be off a week and then back on for 2. It will rotate like that until something happens. There are not as many side affects to deal with but the ones that do come are difficult to overcome if we don't stay on top of them. Pray that we can stay on top of them.
In case some of you don't know the details of the cancer I'll fill you in and you will know how to pray. I have colon cancer that has spread to the liver and lungs. The primary tumor in the colon (the tumor from which it all has spread from) has been removed and they are trying to kill the rest with chemotherapy. The liver has some small tumors on one lobe and a huge one on the other. It is the size of a 3x5 card and it is a very formidable tumor to fight against. As far as the lungs are concerned they have spots across the plains of both and as the CT scan states "there are too many to count". With this information you can see that this battle is in the Lord's hands so we ask that you pray earnestly with us that God would do what man cannot and touch me with His healing power.
I want to thank all of you who leave messages to encourage us. It really does mean the world to us to know that there are people out there who are concerned and praying on our behalf. It makes us feel as if we are not alone in this world as we take on this new assignment from the Lord. We are also powerfully impacted by your prayers from one day to the next. Thanks for praying. Keep it up and we'll fight this battle together and praise God for the victory when it's over. God bless you all!

Prayer Request

News that the cancer marker has began to rise again. This last regimen took the marker from 13 all the way down to 3.8. Last week the doctor told us that the treatments have lost effectiveness and the marker has began to climb again and as of last week it had gone back up to 9.3.
We have a CT scan Wednesday 6/20 and next week 6/27 we will get the results and go from there. Please pray that these recent treatments did a lot of damage to the tumors on the liver before it lost its effectiveness.
We have been praying that God would stir the hearts of the saints to be praying earnestly concerning our healing. We pray that God would do something so unusual that the doctor wouldn't be able to medically explain such positive results.
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. God bless.
