My sweet friend Angela, with terminal brain cancer, is having chemo AGAIN, starting on Thursday. I'm not sure how many rounds, but it was a sudden decision after the MRI because of all the heart attacks she's been having recently. (The tumor is affecting nerves that cause her coronary arteries to severely constrict, stimulating a heart attack. They had no idea what was causing her heart attacks until they watched one during an MRI!). This will be the 9th (I think) time I've seen her go through chemo since I met her in 2007, and I think she had only 1 chemo cycle just before that.
She was diagnosed in 2005 and given 18 months to live, so she's beaten those odds. The chemo has helped, I am sure, but it's a miserable and horrible thing to go through.
Prayers please, that she can finish this entire cycle of chemo. The last one had to be halted. The new cocktail was wrong for her.
Thank you for your powerful prayers and thoughts.
