Day 1 of Chemo


Hi Everyone,

Jesse's first day of chemo started last night. They will give it to her every 12 hours for 4 days. She already has a fever, most likely from the chemo, and is EXTREMELY nauseated. None of the medication that is for nausea helps her at all. This is one of those trials, that has the words ENDURE written all over it.

Another peace of good news, is her heart is slowly improving. The last echo she had, her "squeeze" number was 20.8, and now it is 26.8

The bone marrow biopsy showed 5% "blasts", these could be baby bone marrow, or Leukemia. They will take a closer look at them, and give us a report later on.

Thank you all for keeping Jesse in your prayers,

Team Catron

"The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock, in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, my refuge, my saviour; you saved me from violence. I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." 2Samuel 22:2-4

Hello Catrons, I am praising God Jesse's heart is a little stronger, interceding that the vomiting stop, and thanking Him that He can cause it to stop.
I certainly don't understand His whys and wherefores at times, and my heart is torn and bleeding and sometimes stops beating, from the pain I feel for Jesse: But I CHOOSE to believe in the ALMIGHTY God and His wisdom and power, and His Word. I know that I know, that I know, that He is true and faithful, and Jesse will be whole and healthy for His glory and honor. Psalms 118:17 says, "I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord." --David was very ill, and there seemed to be no hope for him, when he spoke that.---There is a lot of hope for Jesse!

I have been looking at pictures of the family, today, and marvelling all over again at how blessed I am to have such beautiful children and granddaughters, and how beautifully the love of the Lord shines through from the inside to the outside. The beauty of the Lord shines through you so strongly, Deanna, that you are far more gorgeous now than when you were a beauty queen for the world as a teenager. I am so blessed and so thankful for God's "good works" and His faithfulness.

We are loving you all dearly--

Praise God for Jesse's improving heart. Praying that the "blasts" are the good stuff. The Lord really does shine through you all and what you are doing for each other. The strength that you are pouring forth and the love you are lavishing on each other is encouraging. Praying that the transition goes well and a great day 2 for chemo.

Love you all,

Sammy
