Keep Walking

"If we are facing in the right direction, 
all we have to do is keep on walking"
 With that said, on to Terence's update.  He went in for his fourth cycle of chemotherapy yesterday.  It has had a cumulative effect on him so with each cycle he has become more tired and more nauseated, more everything!  Any ways, between his lab reports and the increased pain he has had, Dr. M had decided that the chemo is most likely not working.

So... yesterday he received his last dose of chemo (4 cycles=12 weeks total) and we'll wait 2 more weeks (Jan 17) and follow up with new scans and a oncology appointment the next day to discuss what the next course of treatment may be. We just keep moving forward. That's the right direction.
Keep walking.  Keep walking.
January 4. The day after. He's home, resting.
One of the other issues he has been having is that his body is not able to void his bladder.
 That meant, he finally had to have a (semi) permanent catheter inserted. He wasn't thrilled about that as you can imagine, but he really didn't have a choice.  Today was pretty painful for him, but I am thinking he may get used to it by tomorrow? I'm not too sure!

All I know these days, is that we're headed in the right direction-------so we keep moving forward. We keep walking, keep walking, every day by faith.
God's grace has been sufficient for this journey we've headed into!

Thanks for prayers every one!
