Dan’s First Chemo – Part 1

July 29, 2008 at 8:58 pm Leave a comment

We have made it through Day 1.  The next treatment will be in 8 days.  Things went well with Dan’s first chemo treatment this morning.  He went in at 9:45 a.m., and left at 12:45. Dr. Anderson, the oncologist, told him that the cancer mass is not very large…but there is a large amount of lymph fluid collecting in the mass.  Cancer cells are blocking lymph drainage.

It is hoped that chemo will decrease the fluid as well as the tumor.  Today Dan received first a saline solution drip, then an anti-nausea solution.  That was followed by a drip of Gemsar chemotherapy solution.

I will write more details later.  But I wanted to get this out now so our friends in Europe can read it before they go to bed.  Please, continue praying that the mass will shrink and that the fluid will drain well instead of building up inside the cancer mass.  God is faithful. He never sends His children more than they can bear.  — Anne and Dan
