A Plan Evolves

We are relieved that a treatment plan is in place at last!  The Oncologist here, Dr. Anderson, discussed Dan’s case with Dr. Lin, Dan’s sarcoma specialist, at MD Anderson (MDA). They decided to begin chemo here next Tuesday.  After 50 – 60 days, Dan will go to MDA in Houston. 
Dan had blood tests today. His Family Physician, Dr. Hendrickson, ordered studies of his swollen right leg to make sure there is no deep vein involvement.  He will have an MRI on Friday.  With the two oncologists conferring with each other, we believe Dan will have the best treatment possible. But, obviously, Dan is in a tough battle.  
We want to share a message from Larrell Shutt, now retired elder at Saturn Road in Garland: “Try to occupy your minds with all the good things you have said to others as they met similar circumstances.  Try to remain in as ‘peaceful’ a state as possible in a stressful world of so many ‘unknowns’.  Medical science has come so far, but has so far to go, often leaving us in the end with relying on our Faith & Trust no matter the outcome.  It is sufficient for His children when we can remain in His peace.”  To which we say, “Amen!”
Our Lord said, “Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7 — Anne and Dan
