Silver Linings

The news today wasn't perfect, but it was much better than it could have been. Rhonda has Stage 2A Hodgkins disease. This means that the cancer has spread, but it is still confined to her neck and upper chest. They have two more tests to do--a PET scan (tomorrow) and a bone marrow test (Friday) just to absolutely confirm that the cancer hasn't spread, but they're pretty positive at this point.

They're also planning to put a port in her neck (Friday) for the chemotherapy so that once school is out she'll be ready to start--but the other good news is that she'll be able to finish school before she starts treatment. The chemo will be every two weeks, and will last for 24 weeks. The prognosis is good, but we can surely still use your prayers.

She's already looking at wigs! We'll keep you posted.

Indeed, may the Great Physician be near you all. Hang in there.

Praying for Rhonda and family, my friend.

Psa 34:15 "The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry."
