We are at a real turning point. I have started into my last cycles of chemo (potentially 6 more), and to be honest it is very depressing! The doctor said that we would take one cycle at a time, and that how many more we do is kind of up to us. Please pray for wisdom for the docs and us on how far to push this. At a certain point I would think the chemo is doing more damage than good; and so we need real concrete wisdom on when to say enough is enough (I’m ready to say one more cycle and enough). We are going to take one cycle at a time, and make a decision from there; again though, that’s the hard part (please pray the Lord would make it clear when we should call chemo quits). And please pray that the cancer never comes back; i.e. that as I type this to you that I am cancer free even now (and as far as we know, given the surgery, I am).

Beyond all this, my wife and I are completely beat — we are spent, and completely on the edge. We know the LORD is sustaining us through His grace and provision; but you would think that we were in the easy part now, I’ve come to realize there are no easy parts to this season of life. Please continue to pray us through this! You all are awesome, and it is so great just to know you’re still there with us — we can’t bear this alone (cf. Gal. 6). Love you all  . . .
