We’ve had two positive reports from Cheryl’s doctors this past week. A manual exam by her oncologist indicated that her tumor has decreased by half after six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. We also learned yesterday after a CAT scan of her lungs that there is no indication that the cervical cancer has spread beyond the pelvic area. Cheryl has completed her external radiation treatments and chemotherapy in Lacey. Next Thursday we travel to Seattle to meet with the radiation oncologist, where she will begin five sessions of internal radiation at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Please pray for the side effects of the radiation she is receiving. It causes severe burning in the pelvic region making something as simple as using the restroom very painful. Following these treatments, she will rest for six weeks before having surgery at UW Medical Center.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and support!
