Recently a biopsy has shown that my wife's cancer has changed from non-small cell carcinoma to small cell carcinoma and there are several infected lymph nodes in her lung of concern. On Thursday morning they will admit her to Hopkins for three days to start a regimen of chemotherapy, they want to see how the treatment will affect her sodium levels and other related areas of concern. Please pray for this sweet soul as she begins another phase of this terrible trial. Chris Shifflett
