Hi Hearttoheart. I just thought I’d check in. How are you and Michael doing?
Jump to this post
Treatment starting very soon now for Michael
Today we are going to hospital so he can get his bloods done,a COVID test and be told the chemo drugs he will be given
On Thursday he will have the port line inserted
On Friday dental appointment
Next week he will start his treatment
I am still in shock as to the suddenness of what is happening
Only a few months ago we were so happy he had reversed his diabetes..but deal with this ,we must
Thank you for your support
I meant to reply sooner
I will let you know how he is doing when we get more info and detail
We had a zoom call meeting with oncology nurse
Explaining what lay ahead and what we can do at home to make life as best we can
I have been given literature which I try to absorb in small amounts
Will be in touch soon again
Please keep up the prayers 🙏😔
