Many of you have inquired about Troy's health and have offered your thoughts and prayers. Currently, he is receiving chemotherapy. He is on treatment #5 of 12, and is tolerating them pretty well. After treatment #8, he will have another CT Scan to check progress. If things appear to be ok, then he may stop after #8. If his oncologist is still concerned, then he many continue with 12 treatments. After that, he will have surgery to reverse his ostomy, which he will be so thankful for! Once all of that is complete, his oncologist would like for us to travel to Bethesda, Maryland to participate in a vaccine program that the National Health Institute is doing and is seeing great success with. Not sure, yet, what all of that will include, but we are hopeful for a complete cure. Cancer is a terrible disease, but we are so thankful for early detection and that God has provided us with such amazing surgeons and oncologists! We are truly blessed people! Again, thank you for your thoughts and concerns. Keep praying! God is doing amazing things in our lives!!!
