On Friday, July 1 he had a surgery to place a port in his chest that directly attaches to a main artery for the chemo. It basically looks like a pop bottle cap under his skin which when it is pieced with a needle or whatever it reseals itself. He starts chemo on Monday, July 11 which he has to do once a week for 8 months. The appointment could sometimes take one hour or up to 3 hours.
The Marine Corps sent Jeff an Ipad 2 which will be nice to have with him at his appointments. Prior to his surgery he had his first MRI since his surgery with all positive reports. The cancer has not spread at all, there is swelling from the radiation which is normal but the doctors were all pleased with the results...once again God is so Good!!
We are asking for continued prayers for the healing in Jeff and that he has a smooth transition into chemo. We appreciate all the love and support while Jeff destroys the disease within him. He is and will continue to be doing better than anyone had expected...he is our Jeff :)
