The Routine

We had another rough night last night. It seems we are in a standard routine now. Chemo starts about 7:30 p.m. The pain kicks in around midnight, keeping Tyler up all night. Just as he falls asleep, he receives more Chemo at 7:30 a.m. Around 10 a.m. Tyler is able to fall asleep. He wakes up around 2 p.m., feeling good, talking, smiling, and looking for food. He does really well all afternoon. Then, just as he is starting to get tired, it is 7:30 and time to start all over.

We will be done with this cycle on Friday and, God willing, will be able to go home for some R&R before the next cycle begins.

Hang in there Tyler!
I'll tell you something that Papa Chattin told me one time. You are strong, you come from good stock and you will make it through this! I know he would tell you the same thing. He was the wisest man I've ever known. I believed him and he was right!!! So focus on Friday and going home. You're almost there.

Hi Tyler, Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you at this very moment and am praying right now as you begin your chemo at 7:30. May God's loving arms surround you and hold you close to Him.
With love, Mrs. Davakis

Just a note to let you know you are being prayed for. I will pass this along to our little church in N.E. Philadelphia, little maybe in number, but filled with prayer warriors. "Whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world--our faith." I John 5:4

In Jesus' love,
