Clinic Visit Update

Sorry it has been a long time since we've posted a prayer request for a clinic visit for Elena.

I guess I know in my heart that you are praying for us all the time : )
Elena had her monthly chemo treatment yesterday.

For this appointment, she was sedated for a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) to receive one drug to treat her brain and spine and a second drug via her port to treat her blood and body. She also began her monthly round of steroids and will continue to take her chemo pills at night as usual. The appointment went well. No problems with the sedation, her counts are good and the doctors kept her drug dosages the same. Her next appointment is scheduled for February 16th.

We have almost completed 22 months of treatment!
Only seven more months to go!!!
Thank you for the continued prayers. They have helped sustain us more than you'll ever know.

In Him,
The Tates
