Chemo Effects and Brother Gene

Three days from treatment and I’m feeling pretty good. A nice day at home with Lori and the kids. The side effects have not been bad this time. Slight heartburn some fatigue, but I got out moving around and it seemed to get me back on track. Looking forward I can’t wait to see Pete and Letty next week. I missed the annual opening day of dove season again this year. So to all my hunting buddies, I hope you had a good shoot and a safe trip out in the field.

Each time we change my cocktail it’s an adventure waiting to see what kind of side effects and when they will appear. I have to just guess on my first week. My hair will start coming out soon again. I have put in a special order. I want my hair to come in white, slight wave, etc … Anyway,  just as long as it comes back it will be OK.

In Honor of Paw Paw.

Update on our friend Gene (Paw Paw), he is facing surgery on Monday. He is a strong man (in faith and physically). We are expecting God to step up and work mightily through his doctors. Love you Gene and I can’t wait to see you after the surgery.

Heavenly father, we seek your comfort and wisdom in all the situations we face. We praise your name for guarding Gene and I, especially through our individual battles with this beast called cancer. I thank you for the faith that you have armed Gene and I with. I can’t speak of where Gene’s faith is exactly but I know him well enough to know that God has given him strong faith and is in the process of fine tuning that faith to exactly what Gene needs now. Lord you are so good to us even when we are sinners, unworthy, unfit, but all the while loved by You. I lift up Gene’s family as they love and care for him.  Amen and Amen.
