Anyway...we were just kind of having fun with this. Ramona often gets compliments as to how absolutely gorgeous she is, but on Monday, a few nurses and Dr. Wong himself were all talking about how Ramona looked better/healthier than she had in a few weeks.
Monday afternoon we got a phone call from a nurse saying how she looked good for having a hemoglobin of 83.
So...Ramona had a transfusion yesterday.

......Day 2 of chemo is over today. It's definitely tiring for her. She spent most of this evening sleeping.

I don't feel like going into details right now...but going after the supernatural and destroying the works of satan puts us in the middle of spiritual wars...gladly pray for us in the whole realm of discernment of spirits....and everything related to the battle that is not against flesh and blood...

Just so you of you is one number away from the right answer...gotta keep guessing! (And those of you who know information that would give the answer away-you better keep it to yourselves! :) Tomorrow the truth will be revealed!

Okay, so Ramona is chatting with her mom on the phone and I'm going to play a little game with you guys. The game is called: Are you smarter than a doctor? Using only this picture, you need to figure out what Ramona's hemoglobin is. A hint, this latest chemo is predicted to knock out the hemoglobin and have less of an effect on the white blood count than the previous chemo. For reference: 120=hemoglobin in the normal range, 100=hemoglobin is good enough to leave hospital or do chemo without a transfusion, <90= transfusion time. Two weeks ago her hemoglobin was 99.
With all this extra information....let's see how well you do. Um...I don't think I have any prizes. Sorry

Aside from my awe inspiring game, Ramona's 25th-ish round of chemo is starting tomorrow...we actually lost track...
We're pretty settled in here at Frank and Anne Marie's. We spend a bunch of time hanging out with them. Ramona has a Bible study going on. With Ramona feeling the way she does, I still spend more time at home focusing on food and our spirits, than I do at work . I'm actually not doing anything out of the U of M this semester either, just one course hosted at the Springs Church.

Thanks to all the people praying...

This is about a week ago.

One morning Ramona took a shower. Although this in itself isn't big news, during this certain shower her leg started softening up. After some poking and prying, this is what her leg looked like.

After some serious digging, Ramona picked the most incredible booger of her life. This chunk actually did have some boogerish properties to it.......

This is how it currently looks! It's actually pretty exciting to see progress. This leg has caused a lot of pain in the past.
Thank you Jesus!

Yeah so the way things look now, I will be starting out-patient chemo on Tuesday. What this means is that I go to CancerCare at St. B Tuesday afternoon and stay for 3 1/2 hours and then go home. Wednesday and Thursday are the same, I understand. I will be receiving cisplatin and etoposide. One of the major side effects is nausea. We're definitely praying against that.

For the first week and a half that Earl & I moved to Frank & Anne Marie's I felt superb! The last few days have been a little rougher. I've had more chest pain, more exhausted and more random pain, but still in general, I'm amazed how good I feel. God is so good!!

Earl & I have learned so many things in the last 2 weeks. We are spending a lot of time seeking after Jesus and His presence. We are receiving revelation in so many areas-it's super exciting and yet sometimes overwhelming! We are also learning about and experiencing inner healing. The more we learn, the more we hunger for!!

We feel so blessed to be living here. God truly is providing for us!
