Clinic Update

Here's a quick update from today's clinic visit:
Elena received two kinds of chemo in her port. She did not get the PEG shots. She has to go back tomorrow for those. They didn't explain why she didn't get them today. The nurse practitioner said Elena's protocol is written for her to receive them the day after. We didn't see a doctor today either, that was a little aggravating. I guess we have questions that aren't easily answered in this uncertain world of cancer and chemo.

Please pray for Elena to have a peaceful reassurance about getting the shots tomorrow and about missing school. She went to the clinic today, kicking and screaming, because she didn't want to leave school and miss classes. She gets very stressed out about the work she misses and not understanding what is going on in class the next day. Pray she will slow down and listen as we try to reassure her that it will all be ok.

Thank you for checking on us and for your prayers!

In Him,
The Tates

  1. While I am glad that Elena does not want to miss school. Sorry that is stresses her out, but happy that she likes school and teachers and friends there so much that she truly WANTS to be there. Elena, you have a right to be upset about missing school but try not to take that stress out on your family. All God wants you to do is glorify Him in ALL that you do and with all that He gives you! You are already a shining light for others. We shall continue to pray for healing and peace...and good grades :)
    Blessings to you all!
