Friday's Doctor Visit

Kristin again here.

Dad and mom had an appointment with Dr. Glass today. They had an MRI done. Dr. Glass said the tumor looks pretty much the same with the center being dead. It doesn't look like it has grown, but neither has it shrunk. Since Dad is having physical symptoms, Dr. Glass thinks it is best to work at trying to shrink the tumor with Avastin (a type of drug) infusions. They are scheduled to go next Wednesday for the first one of these.

Please pray for mom as she does research on and as they seek council from all of their other team members who they are receiving care from as well.

Dad has been asked to read a scripture at Mr. Scheiber's service tomorrow and I think pray as well. Please pray for Dad's physical strength to be able to do this.
