Day 20

It’s too bad the chemo lab doesn’t have a liquor license or we would have popped a cork today. They can dispense all sorts of controlled substances, but not alcohol. How weird is that? I haven’t had a drink in weeks—thanks to what interferon has done to my taste buds. I may try a little merlot tonight since this is certainly an occasion to celebrate. The infusions are history, and the central venous catheter is gone. On to new adventures next week.

Peter,

Praise be to God, you have made it through the dreaded period of interferon transfusions! Such an accomplishment is certainly worthy of celebrating and I know you must be relieved that this phase is behind you.

I will continue to keep you in my prayers as you begin your radiation treatments and move into the next phase of interferon treatments via injections.

Thanks for allowing me and so many others the opportunity to walk alongside you during these trying times. Your blog has proven to be a window into your soul and I have been immensely blessed to read the insights you have gained over the last few weeks. Keep up the good work my friend.

Your brother in Christ,

Kevin
