Actually there is more to the story than just taking a nap. We are truly taking a BREAK from all treatments and we feel completely at peace with our decision and so does our doctor.
The chemo treatments have really broken Fred's body down. He needs time to heal both physically and mentally. He needs time to rebuild his resources, catch up on lots of sleep and the pain to go away. However while we are doing this we need those darn cancer cells to behave themselves and go to sleep or better yet die.
The plan is to take a break for one month and then we will repeat a PET scan and see where we are and if the chemo is doing what we need it to do. So we plan to enjoy this next month. I am hoping for some great weather so we can get outside for some fresh air and nature.
In the mean time thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I completely believe that all prayers are answered and miracles happen but at the right time. Your prayers are truly what we need right now and it is what keeps us going everyday and the reason I get out of bed. Trust me it has crossed my mind many times to just pull the covers over my head and go back to sleep. HAHAHA. Well I hope that we will learn what we need to learn from this trial very soon and then move on. However, until then we feel very blessed for wonderful friends, family and faith.
Love you all. Have a great day.
