Just home from first infusion of Yervoy. I go back in three weeks, if I tolerate it. Chemo nurse was wonderful. Also got some decent pain and nausea control, which I'm glad for, because my leg threw a fit (no I don't mean a seizure) on the way home. My hope isn't on fire, but it's curious.
Had a call from my friend. She saw the specialist in her type of tumors. He thinks he can treat it with a medication which is specific for these. Will shrink them and keep her in remission.
Keep praying. She says thanks and feels the power bearing her up and strengthening her.

A year old! Damien Chase - I don't know him. He does not know me. I am his Gram - the many facets of why this is so are heart wrenching at best. I heard he was sick - in the hospital even - needs surgery of varying kinds. The details are not shared. It's his Mom's birthday too this month. Her estrangement from me, us....breaks my heart. I keep a candle in every window - lit all year so she can find her way home. Please pray she finds her way home.
From THE NEW YORK TIMES:
Syrian security forces continued to bombard the restive northern town of Jisr al-Shoughour on Saturday as people struggled to escape.
“Helicopters and tanks are bombing Jisr from all the sides and the situation is extremely miserable — they are even targeting cars carrying civilians and the wounded,” said Mohamed al-Abdo, a refugee hiding in the hills above town. He said he could hear the boom of explosions and the sound of helicopters, even from miles away.
From THE LOS ANGELES TIMES:
A roadside bomb Saturday killed 15 Afghan civilians, including eight children, in Arghandab district in Kandahar province. The blast was one of a series of attacks across the country that killed at least 21 people in 24 hours, including a Western service member who died in the south.
