The start of new chemothrtapy

This morning I started a new chemotherapy treatment. It is administered by infusion with a new drug just approved last summer for the use of my kind of cancer. Initially it has had very positive results. We were actually at the cancer center for 4+ hours but hope in the future that it will only take about 3 hrs. Nancy says that I slept through most of the infusion. So far I haven't felt any side effects. I was given an anti nausea medication in conjunction with the infusion. We pray that there won't be any ill effects tonight.

Thank you for your continued faith, love & support.


  1. Dear Mike and Nancy and family---You do have our continued faith, love and support and prayers---every day! We trust in Father's plan for all of you. Love Gordon and Emolyn

  2. Sorry it took so long, but so glad you are feeling fine so far. Our prayers are with you for a restful night and peaceful day tomorrow!

  7. Mike and Nancy, you are in our thoughts and prayers daily and will continue to be. I request the same from all of those, and there are a lot, who ask about you. Your faith and fortitude are an example for all.

  8. Mike,
    I thought you would want to know that we have close to 1000 students attending classes in the downtown this semester. We continue to work on plans for the Fisher building and plan to have more students in there by fall!
    Thanks for all of your support. You and your family are in our thougths and prayers.

She is making a 2nd start at college & is studying culinary arts!Thanks for all you did to make stuff happen downtown. I know we sure appreciate it! Also, glad to hear the first day of the new chemo went well...we continue to send positive thoughts your way....
