Dear Family and Friends

The treatment recommended and agreed upon for Kay is twofold. Radiation of the large mass in the pelvic area followed by Immunotherapy/Chemo.
Yesterday Kay began with 10 days, weekends off, of targeted radiation treatment to shrink the size of this mass in the pelvic area. There is concern that due to the mass, the pelvis could fracture and/or effect a major nerve bundle which could cause leg problems. The radiologist will take PET or CT scans to monitor the progress and success of the treatment.The treatment could cause serious side effects and so we are pray for success of the radiation.  Success of radiation could possibly decrease any current pain experienced. in that area.

Feb 18 Kay will begin the Immunotherapy/Chemo IV drip.This takes about 1 1/2 hours each visit with a three week break between IV sessions. There are 3-4 IV sessions planned and these appointments are done as a clinic outpatient. More on this later.

Kay is still sleeping well, eating better and maintains a positive attitude. Her faith is so strong and she is my hero. Kay loves those messages posted and cards received in the mail from you. Thank you for caring so much.

Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man(woman)….He(she) will have no fear of bad news; his(her) heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Psalm 112:4,7
