The Latest On Wayne and Glynn

It is so wonderful to see Wayne and Glynn each week at church.  He is continuing to teach our Sunday School Class and sing in the choir.  What a blessing!

Wayne’s chemo treatments for pancreatic cancer are continuing on a weekly basis, with a week off after three treatments.  The treatments are contingent, of course, on his blood counts, but so far, they have all been good, so there has been no delay in the chemo.

A scan was done a couple of weeks ago and though they have not received the final results, preliminary indications are that the the tumor has shrunk approximately 30%!!!! Yes, that is a big “Thank you, God”.

We are so thankful for God’s blessings on Wayne and Glynn.  We are thankful for the Grace, Peace, and Comfort which God has abundantly given them.  We are thankful for being able to watch them as they take their cancer journey.  Because of their faith, they are an example of what it means to ‘put things in God’s hands.”  Thank you, Wayne and Glynn.  We continue to pray for you.

Kenny: “God is infinitely good.”

I received this email last night giving the latest information on Kenny and his response to an experimental cancer treatment using a drug called Reolysin. Here is a portion of his email:

Helen and I are so thankful about the way things have gone for us. We are so grateful for everyone’s prayers and support. We would not be where we are today without all of you. God is infinitely good.
The sponsoring pharmaceutical (Oncolytics) has approved extending treatments “indefinitely”. As long as I tolerate it well and I continue to receive benefit from the drug (as measured by CT scans), and God leads that way, we will continue to go to San Antonio about every four weeks for another round.
There is a new article that was published in the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio’s (of which CTRC is a part) news publication. The link:
If you haven’t seen me on YouTube yet, where have you been? You can find me at:
If you are interested in checking out press releases from Oncolytics Biotech (the makers of the experimental drug), you can find them at:
Some of you may like to go to the website of the clinic where we go for treatment:
We are totally in awe of God’s grace in our lives and are so thankful for all He has done and is going to do.”

I spoke with Kenny just before writing this post. We talked about the emotional roller coaster that we ride when traveling down the cancer path. Kenny mentioned that your emotions can be totally different when you are waiting for the results of a test than they are after you receive the results a few minutes later. He also mentioned the ‘peace that passes all understanding’ that can only come from God.

Yes. God is blessing Kenney, but because of Kenny, God is also blessing us.
