Biopsey came back clear ~_~. Spirits are high and a calming weekend at the ocean planned before chemo & radiation on Monday. Bless you all for the prayers that have been sent and for those to come.

Glad the biopsy came back clear and hope the treatments are a success. Cancer is an ugly disease, but it can be beaten with the right treatments and attitude. Good luck to all of you in this journey.

Update: Minor surgery the 5th to insert power port and gastric feeding tube. Went well. His humor is up there ~ told his wife he wanted strawberry flavor for the g tube feeding. She went off to the nurse demanding it for him, before we all burst out laughing and she blushed a beautiful strawberry shade of red. Major chemo (4 day drip) starts today. He is determined to win this battle, so continued prayers are greatly appreciated.

a sense of humor does help. Prayers that he will be strong throughout this treatment and healed by it.

A sense of humor is a gift of God. So, apparently, is your brother! So glad it is going well! Continued prayers!

Round 1 of chemo went well and resting up for Round 2 to start on the 31st (his birthday ~ hopefully it is the gift of life). He is feeling down today as he will not be able to attend his son's graduation from UC Berkley tomorrow. Have ordered the video for him, but not quite the same. His son has battled Muscular Dystephry(sp)since age 8 and this is such a major milestone for him. His determination is an awsome inspiration to te entire family. Please continue to lift my brother up in your prayers as they provide such comfort and inspiration to all of us.

Update ~ Oy! What a roller coaster this journey has been. Developed bowel infection, intestional infection, blood infection and lung infection & acute reneal failure. Hospitalized evening of the 18th & still there. Major antibotics and blood transfusions, almost lost him on the 23rd. He is such a fighter and an inspiration to me. I believe prayer and his will carried him thru thus far. They will be re-evaluating the chemo dose for the next round after he gets some strength back. Not exactly where he wanted to be for his birthday today, but so very grateful to be here for it. Hoping to be be home by end of week.Thank you all again for lifting our spirit during this journey.
