School starts and so does Chemotherapy

The children are back in school, and Carl is back to getting chemotherapy.   
The children started school September 1, 2011, and have had four days of school so far.  Tom is a High School Junior (11th grade), Anthony is a High School Sophmore (10th grade), Nathan is in 8th grade, and Miranda is in 7th grade. 

Carl started an overnight 24 hour infusion on Wednesday, September 7, 2011, and that chemotherapy infusion is ending today, Thursday, September 8, 2011.  It is a new chemotherapy drug for Carl - an experimental drug with some weird name.  (I'll find out the name later)  

I would love lots of prayers that this new chemotherapy drug works wonders - the stupid cancer cells have been growing again.  Please put Carl on your church's prayers list as well.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that some cells are growing, since Carl has had only one other chemotherapy course in 2011, but I admit that the new cells are discouraging.    

By the way, Carl started out this chemotherapy course weighing 136 lbs.
