Chemo update for Mathew

Today, we went to see Dr Nabong to talk about where we need to go from here.

We talked about how sick Mathew has been getting doing chemo lately and the times he has had to spend in the hospital after a session of chemo.. The problems with his kidneys and how scared Mathew got when this last time they mentioned he might have to go on dialysis because of the lack of kidney function..

The be all and end all is that Dr Nabong is having Mathew go in 3 weeks for a Catscan and bloodwork. Depending on the outcome of the results from both will determine if we need to go on with the chemo or not. Dr Nabong said that because Mathew gets so sick when he has the chemo it isn't a good idea to continue... I asked him what he would do.. He said, "I would STOP"

If Mathew truly is cancer free right now the chemo is doing more damage than good.

He had the 7 sessions and had a very bad time with it and continued none the less....

A month down the road will be our answer to our many Prayers...

We will update when we get the results back from doing all the tests and then we will move forward from that.

Thank you to all that have helped us get through this trial this far! We could not have been as positive as we've been without your love, support and Prayers. THANK YOU..
