I HAVE GREAT NEWS TO SHARE


MY DAD GOT BACK FROM PHILADELPHIA ON SATURDAY AND THE DOCTORS HAD JUST WHAT HE NEEDED. GOOD NEWS!!! THE TUMORS SEEM TO BE SHRINKING AND THE HOLE IN HIS SPINE HAS CLOSED. THE CHEMO IS WORKING SO THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE IT. HE WILL GO BACK ON 2/10 FOR MORE CHEMO. THIS IS AWESOME MY DAD NEEDED SOME GOOD REPORTS, THE CHEMO HAS REALLY DRAINED HIM AND MADE HIM WONDER IF ITS WORTH IT. HE HAS BEEN ON CHEMO SINCE JULY 1, 2007 WITH NO BREAK FROM IT. I WANT HIM TO CONTINUE BUT HOW DO YOU TELL SOMEONE TO KEEP GOING WHEN THEY DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS WORKING AND THEY FELT SO BAD. I DON'T WANT HIM TO SUFFER BUT I DO WANT HIM TO KEEP FIGHTING. THE TYPE OF CANCER HE HAS THERE IS A 1% CHANCE TO SURVIVE IT AND I TOLD HIM HE MIGHT AS WELL BE THAT 1%.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS FOR HIM. THEY MEAN SO MUCH TO US. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK PRAYER WARRIORS!!!!!

Tell him how much you need him. How much all of you need him. I'm so sorry that this is happening in your family.
It's great though that the treatments are working. Someone has to stand as that 1% and it looks like it will be him.
Big hug to you. Hang in there. Be strong when he can't be.
