    Grandson Jack Update

    Jack started his chemo yesterday -- the first round of 4 rounds. Each round consists of 3 days of chemo followed by one day of white blood cell booster. He's in the hospital for the first round and will be there 2 days, go home, have a treatment on day 3, go home and come back on day 4 for the white blood cell booster. (Rather complicated.)

    It's a good thing he was in the hospital because with the first drug he had a violent reaction within 4 minutes of it starting. He was nauseous, turned red, then ghost white, his throat closed and he started vomiting. Luckily our son was staying with him overnight. Now they're waiting on the doctor to see what to do.

    This has been an emotional roller coaster. I can't imagine what his parents are going through. It must be hell for them.

    When stuff like this happens I start to wonder where God is in all this and become pretty depressed. But then I started thinking about a quote I saw: "Don't worry; I've got this." --God. I have to believe it's all in God's hands because if I don't I don't know how I could go on.

    Thanks for listening. The support of the good people on this forum has been a great comfort.

    Oh my gosh that sounds so scary! You have been on my mind so much since you shared this initial diagnosis. Wish I could help carry the burden, it must be so overwhelming for everyone. Thank you for the update. We are all pulling for him.

      Positive thoughts and prayers for the family. I sent his first card on Monday. Tried to find humorous cards to lighten the mood.

              Sorry to hear about how rough the 1st treatment was. Praying the others go more smoothly.

                  Hi Ann, just wanted to share this with you. This quote was given to us years ago when my DH had cancer treatment. It meant a lot to us and I hope it will give you encouragement too.

                            Yes. That helps a lot. I have to keep reminding myself that God's help is great and evident all around us.

                              I love that. I've copied it and will send it to our son and his wife.
