All Is Well

The First Week of Eastertide

Dear Faithful Family & Friends,

I apologize for the long delay in updating my blog!  I am doing very well; in fact, since I wrote to you in March, I have been on two “real” trips and one “imaginary” trip.  More about that later!

I continue to receive Herceptin infusions, every three weeks.  I have had no side effects except a little blurry vision on the day of infusion.  I am sad to report that my  breast oncologist in Gainesville, Dr. Robert Carroll, closed his practice:  the insurance companies refused to reimburse him for the cost of the chemotherapy drugs.  I am grateful that Dr. Carroll and his team helped me get through the nightmare of chemotherapy but I am sad for the women in the future who will not benefit from his unique practice.

Dr. Mabry in Tallahassee is now my oncologist; Erin is his nurse and I have received expert care from the practice.

This will be short but, in my next update, I will provide photos and describe my travels.

Coram Deo,

      Dear Eun,

      Thanks for reading my blog and for commenting! Thanks, also, for your recent email! Yes, I am glad to be in town for the medical procedure of Herception infusion. It really was silly to drive 2 & 1/2 hours for a 1/2 hour infusion. My oncologist here in TLHSE is taking very good care of me. Thank you for your faithful prayers and good thoughts toward me.

      Coram Deo,

      Coram Deo,

      Dear Kathy,

      I am re-reading the comments to my blog entries. This may be a repeat but I wanted to express how much your faithfulness has meant to me, in terms of friendship, prayer, and encouragement.

      Coram Deo,
