First Chemo

Hey friends!

Today, I had the first round of chemotherapy and second radiation treatment. We checked in at 8:45am for blood work, medical oncology consult with Dr. Robbins, then IVs and injections for 4.5 hours. Followed by radiation, which was much shorter and tolerable. Then, radiation oncologist consult. Dr. Hochman decided to only radiate the left side of my neck and face.

We discovered a few ministry opportunities today. Details to follow..

A patient brought everyone Klondike ice cream bars!

Lisa and I celebrated my appetite by getting sushi!

Please pray for a good friend, Miranda who is pregnant with twins. She has been hospitalized until the babies are born.

Thank you for everything and press on friends, Rich

  1. Richard,

    God bless you brother. I will pray for you and your family. I wasn’t aware of what you are going through until Lorena told me. “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26


  2. Rich,

    Thought of you when I read this verse : James 1:12 – Blessed is the man who perserves under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. Amen!

    All my best, Shirley Byrd

  3. Hi Rich &Lisa. I am sorry I have not contacted you before now. I want the two of you and the family to know you have been in my prayers ever since I heard about this trying time for you and the family. You will continue to be priority in my thoughts and prayers. “You make known to me the path of life in your presence is fullness of joy and in your right hand are pleasures for ever.(Ps.16:11) Kept in His Love.
