Recap of Day 1 of Cancer Treatment

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for Craig. Yesterday, he started Interferon treatment for his skin cancer. While he did well in the clinic, he got VERY sick once we got home...terrible chills, throwing up, etc. I was worried. But then we got some of his prescription meds in him, put him to bed and let him rest. When he woke up around 9pm last night, he looked MUCH better. This morning, he was pretty much back to his normal self, aside from a nasty headache.

Today is Day Two of treatment. We've learned to bring food that he can snack on and keep his strength up during the 2.5 hours it takes to get his full treatment. He'll be here every day for 2.5 hours from Monday-Friday for 4 weeks. Then, he'll be able to take injectable meds at home 3 times a week for 11 months after that.

This is a long journey we're on. Please continue praying for him. Pray that:
*He doesn't get sick every day and stays relatively healthy.
*He is able to continue his MBA course on Tuesday nights.
*He is able to continue working.
*His spirits stay high.
*We all stay strong together as a family unit.

We'll continue to keep you up-to-date!
