Thank you for your prayers. God is sovereign over everything. He knows our past, our present, and our future. Yet, He delights in the prayers of His children. Prayer grows our faith and our relationship with Him.
A quick update – Jonathan did not start chemo as planned. Because of the increased discomfort on his stomach, yesterday afternoon his doctor sent an order for him to take a course of antibiotics to try and improve his overall health before starting chemo. We have seen a slight improvement today. He is still very tired, but has had more and longer awake times. He had a couple of visitors today and enjoyed that time. We are hoping to see even more improvement by this evening.
Tomorrow, we have an appointment with his radiation oncologist to evaluate if he can/should take more radiation as a part of the current treatment. And then, Friday, he is scheduled to receive the every-two-week IV chemotherapy that he has been taking since December.
Continue to pray for a miraculous healing; either gradual or overnight. God is able.
Specifically, pray that the antibiotics will be beneficial in combating whatever has made his stomach sick.
Pray that his strength will improve significantly over the next couple of days so that he will be ready to start the oral chemo.
Pray for wisdom concerning additional radiation.
