Dad's condition remains relatively unchanged. Every day brings new challenges and surprises! Some good, some not so much so. Mom and Dad continue to take each day as it comes and celebrate the little victories and work through the challenges. Dad was able to enjoy a week at Gull Lake Ministries Family Camp last week. That was a goal he had set for himself and we are all very proud of the fact that he succeeded in achieving his goal! His test results have shown a slight decline in the amyloid levels, but not enough so to change his treatment. Dad has now been on chemo for a year. His doctor does not like to keep anyone on the same treatment plan for more than a year. However, in Dad's case, this is the treatment with the least complications and test results show that it is continuing to work. His body is still responding to the treatments. So, for now, his treatments will remain the same.
