Basketcase here checking in. Charlie had his third of seven erbitux/taxotere treatments today on our birthday no less! Yes, we have the same birthday; he was 58 today and I was 57 today; but hey, if this takes care of it or at least gets it under control; it will be an awesome birthday! He's felt really good most of the time; as a matter of fact he said today, it was almost criminal for how good he felt! We met friends at a restaurant where your meal is free on your birthday; he didn't eat much as his taste and appetite are rather funky right now; but he thoroughly enjoyed the evening and Praise the Lord he sounds like himself again pretty much instead of like Froggy off the Little Rascals! Oh, and the big news is we are hopefully going to still be able to get insurance through his work when mine runs out Sept. 30 even though he's on LOA. Fabulous news. I'm not quite the basketcase I was three weeks ago. We know now what we're dealing with and what to specifically pray for and we have so many people and people's churches praying for us besides all of you. I believe it was Hondo who said have as many people praying for you as you can. I really am beginning to believe we're either going to beat this or get it under control one! Thanks so much again for your prayers, continued prayers, friendship and concern! We love y'all!
Jan and Charlie
