Halfway Through!

We are halfway through Troy's last round of treatment. Just two more days of chemo and three more days of radiation. Then more testing and we will be praying that all of these weeks of treatment have shrunk the tumor down to nothing!

Troy is feeling a little more nauseous this evening, but the nurse was just in to give him some medication for that. She also just started another bag of chemo. He is getting the chemo through his IV 24 hours a day until about 8:00 PM on Friday. I would post another picture of him, but it wouldn't look too different from the ones the other day, except the sad look is for real now. I can tell that he is starting to feel the effects of the chemo by the look on his face.

This afternoon we took a walk around the hospital. It made me realize once again that The Methodist Hospital in the Houston Medical Center is an amazing place. So much going on - so much wonderful, cutting edge medical treatment. We feel priviliged to be able to have Troy's treatment done here. People come from all over the world to be treated for cancer here. We saw the beautiful chapel here. They have prayer meetings every morning.
