Continuing on the road to victory...

     We want to keep you updated with the latest information.  Yesterday went well.  My mom has not experienced most of the typical symptomsi of IL2.  No vomiting or diarrhea, no chills or shakes, no severe headaches, no confusion or muscle aches.  She says on a scale of 1-10 (10 being horrible pain and discomfort) she's at a 3.  Her main complication that we need specific prayer for is her blood pressure to stabilize.

     Her blood pressure is too low and she is on medication to keep it where it needs to be.  If the dose of the blood pressure medicine has to stay high to keep her blood pressure up, she can't get her dose of IL2.  She gets a daily dose at 7am, 3pm, and 11pm.  Because of her blood pressure, she wasn't able to get her 11 pm dose the first or second night or her 3pm dose today.  We are praying for it to stabilize so she doesn't have to miss another dose.  Her systolic pressure needs to be over 85.  She needs as many doses of IL2 as her body can tolerate during this 5-7 days.  Please pray with us NOW for her blood pressure to stabilize and thank Him with us for all of the miracles thus far!
