I received this from Randall today:
To the HSU Community:
Subsequent to her stem cell treatment in January, Linda has been gaining strength. Her “numbers” have looked very good, that is until recently. A couple of weeks ago the protein used to measure her cancer began to rise. This past week it was confirmed that the cancer is coming back. Unfortunately, this means that she received very little help from the stem cell treatment.
She will begin low dose chemotherapy in pill form. The doctor expects this will knock down the cancer and at least keep it managed.
We were hoping for remission. All indicators were that this was the way it was heading. We’re surprised and disappointed but regardless we are grateful for competent doctors and treatment options, a loving community who supports us, and a God who hurts with us and comforts us.
