Report

Okay, it wasn't the news we wanted. It seems that there are more "things" in both David's liver and lungs, and the ones that were there are bigger. SO, on to the next step. He will be adding yet another targeted therapy to the one he is on now, but instead of being twice a month, this will be once a week. So be it. Whatever it takes to stop the progression is what we will do. The doctor was amazed at how well David looks, though, and told us to keep on doing what we have been doing because it is obviously working. We have to now work out his treatment schedule, a problem with the holidays looming before us, but hopefully, we will be in the swing of it within a couple of weeks. The next scan is February 8. Happy birthday to me week.
So, keep on keeping him in your prayers. We have no doubt that that has also been a huge factor in his good health!

    Hey! Sorry to hear that the "things" have increased in number. However, I still have faith that David can beat this cancer. He DOES look fabulous, and, if I didn't know it, I would never think he had it. I know it wasn't the news you wanted, but at least there is still ways to try and beat it. Keep on being strong and doing your daily supplements, like the doctor said. What kind of new therapy is it - more chemo? When will the kids be here for Thanksgiving? I know the roofers will be at your house next week, hopefully, they will finish by Wednesday. Let me know if there is anything I can do. Our Thanksgiving will be small, I guess. The girls will be here, and hopefully Joe will be here, too. Don't know yet. Of course, Daddy will be here, but Bubba and Lori have opted to stay home, but will be up here for some real estate seminar the first week of December. SO???? I guess they figure that will be their holiday with Daddy. Some people never learn. Take care and let hear more about David's treatment as you find out. Love you, Cheryl

    What can we say? We're mad about the latest news, but glad David is otherwise well. Don't lose heart. We all (cats and dogs included) have our fingers and toes crossed. And you're in our prayers every day.

    I'm sorry about your "news" but I'm glad David is looking and feeling so great. Keep up the obviously good work. You're such a fine example of faith and courage.
