Chile and Ensalada

Herrow! It's time for another update!

We had our second round of Taxotere yesterday, and mommy doesn't seem to be experiencing any extreme symptoms so far. Please pray that she will be completely side effect free! Unfortunately, the new chemo doesn't seem to be working, as mommy continues to cough almost continuously throughout the day. So please pray that the chemo will improve mommy's condition drastically.

She's lost almost all her hair, so we are in search of soft hats and scarves to cover her head. If you happen to know where we can find such hats, please pass on the info. We are driving to the Stanford Cancer center tomorrow afternoon to pick a wig for her, so please pray that we will have a good time and that we will find the perfect hairpiece for her! We also attended a lung cancer support group at the same center last Wednesday, and we met many non-smoking lung cancer patients. Please pray that she will find a way to communicate with the other patients even though she doesn't speak fluent english and that it will be an uplifting and supportive place for her.

We have already switched doctors once, but we are considering switching to UCSF's lung specialist Dr Jahan. We will need to send in her medical records and wait for him to review her case before we can began the switching process. Please pray that God will lead us to the right decision and that we can be at peace with the outcome.

Lastly, please pray for me. I am very sick, so on top of not being able to take care of mommy, I am exposing her to extra germs in her most critical period.

Thank you! And if you are wondering about the title, ask Katie Low about it!
