day 21-my dad says, "the drs are continuing to work on the infection to try to get it under control so they can start the 2nd round of chemotherapy. today, I had a bronchoscopy (I have literally had every once of my body inspected with different procedures, and my organs are healthy...it's just the bone cancer) to try to flush out what is in my lungs and to analyze it. The procedure went well. They seem to have the first infection (yeast in blood) under control but they haven't dialed in on what is going on in my lungs. They have to wait for the cultures to come back and that could take a while. of course doing all this is necessary before starting the next chemo. so, obviously, the big prayer is that this infection in the lungs will be identified and cleared so that I will be strong enough to do chemo."
my dad wants to do his own blogs and respond to comments but he is too weak and can't do it.
we ask again that for the next few weeks he not have any calls or visitors.
Thank you for understanding and thank you so much for the love and prayers.
My dad loves you guys so much and appreciates you all!!
He want everyone to know that he listens to praise songs and is still declaring that our God is a mighty and awesome God and can deliver us from the mouths of lions. He also wants you all to know that he is praying for you.
