The Saga Continues

Luke 12:6-7 (KJV)
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

The saga continues. And that’s a good thing considering the alternative. The visit with the oncologist didn’t go as we would have hoped.

Despite that fact that Matt continues to look really good on the outside, the tumors have continued to grow on the inside. The chemo that was supposed to stop them in their tracks hasn’t been able to pull it off. Protocol dictates no more chemo—at least not of this variety.

But our God remains the same. God assures us that our lives are of more value to Him than a sparrow. He has not forgotten us. We can continue to trust Him.

Our oncologist went over other options that we have not yet tried. Other options that may stop the growth of the tumors. We discussed different forms of chemo given intravenously, embolization of the tumors on the liver, and radiation. More options.

Some possibilities are being reviewed. For now we wait for the doctor to call back and let us know if it is a go or not. Thanks for your continued prayers and encouragement in this journey. We continue to feel blessed and humbled by the outpouring of love and prayers from so many. We truly are blessed.

    Rosie, as long as the oncologists are suggesting options, there is hope for cure. Remission can come suddenly, after a different treatment. It happens all the time! Just stay strong and try everything that is available. We are all thinking of you.

      Agreed. Even the chemo Matt just “finished” didn’t exist when for pancreatic cancer when he was first diagnosed. And it does work for some. Thanks for your words of encouragement.
