Gary, my coworker, was diagnosed with throat cancer a couple of months ago (never drank or smoked a day in his life). He's about 60 and the prognosis was good. He is now in the hospital - has lost 16 pounds (and didn't have 16 pounds to lose), has a blood clot in his leg, his BP keeps bottoming out and now his kidneys aren't functioning properly - and he's now very scared. He's a wonderful man who would do anything for anyone and we're all concerned. Prayers would be appreciated.

Another example of prayers working! Not only did Gary have a MUCH better day yesterday, they were able to put his feeding tube in today. After his last radiation treatment on Thursday they may send him home.

Thanks to each and very one of you!

Gary stopped by work yesterday. His treatments are finished and he's trying to regain his strength. He was very very thin (thin to start with) and his color wasn't good. He still has a feeding tube - but he drove to work (wasn't supposed to) and he sounded pretty good. It was nice to see him and hopefully some time in the next few months he'll be strong enough to return to work. I know that's what he wants to do.
