He thinks he is getting used to the Xeloda. He went to work, we saw the guys, he got excited about moving forward on the new products (yes yes we have to do that so we can pay our bills) and we took the boys to the guitar store to spend the gift certificates Grandpa gave them. (they are learning to play.)

Right now, he is out with the middle boy, teaching him to drive in the rain. That's pretty amazing...for this strong of a chemo that is upsetting to the tummy. I am very proud of him.

Maybe we will just get those errant cells. Maybe we will kick this thing after all!

That is so great that Layne is doing all these things. Nothing like grands to perk you up. My oldest grand stayed overnight and we really had fun with her, did not think I could do that much to keep her amused but she is just a great kid. Have to say Layne is made out of the right stuff for sure. Prayers and hopes that the Xeloda will take away any errant cells.

But these are ours. Their grandpa on Layne's side gave them the certificates, but they are ours and we still have to finish raising them hehe. :)

Glad to hear he did better. We were so impressed with how well he was doing. Hope our delicious lunch wasn't too much.
We still haven't heard about the Proton, have a call in, no reply so far. Praying for you both to come through this in the same way you did the rest of the treatment. Using the 91st Psalm as a guide.

Glad Layne is doing better. I know how the Xeloda can make you feel. We go tomarrow to see about Al's post op chemo.

Keep me posted on Laynes progress. To compare notes.

God Bless

congats Layne and Betty! Good news. Layne has to enjoy these good days and continue to move forward. My dad took Xeloda, and did very well. Hardly had any side effects. Enjoy those kids, and do the most you can with them. Life is too short, so make the best of it. Praise the Lord.
