Carlene Update

Carlene has started the last stage of her cancer treatments, and that is to be done with about 13 to 14 days of Radiation. ย She had her first dose on Friday and is already feeling the awful side effects, so keep her in your prayers and I’ll keep you up and informed on how she is doing.

    Had a few family and freinds that have gone for the treatments now, not much fun at all. Really hope Carlene can keep her spirits up and soldier on though it. Neally at the end of the treatments now, hope it all goes as smoothly as possable.

    You know I’m thinking of her, and I *try* not to bug you for updates that I know you give when you have information. I’m also praying for a positive outcome once the treatment is complete!!

    Carlene sounds like a very brave and determined person.
    All this effort dealing with medical treatment and it’s gross side-effects is not for nothing, and it’s great to read she is nearing the end.
    My family’s prayers are with you and yours, John.
    All the best Carlene

    Hailing from Anchorage, Alaska… wishing you best. It’s not easy, I know. I haven’t been there but an older friend of mine went through chemo a few years back. She’s doing well. Stay strong, you’ve got a lot of people pulling for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It always seems like the last leg of the race is the hardest. My prayers are with you and your family! Carlene is very fortunate to have a family that loves her to support her over the next couple of weeks.

    My best wishes for Carlene!!

    So glad to hear that Carlene has begun the last stages of her treatments. I remember Elizabeth going through the same ordeal with the Radiation. Her faith in God and her recovery got the rest of our family through the trials. Carlene is in our prayers !!!!

  28. June 16, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    Best of luck to Carlene and the rest of your family. This has to be one of the toughest things anyone should have to face.
