I don't know if everyone realizes how close David was to dying on Thursday. He doesn't even remember the day. It was so scary and I was looking bid death square in the face. I know the last couple of days I have been so thankful when he awakes in the morning. I know God is giving me one more day with him. An update on his chemo. He is 48 hours in and has 48 to go. He has had a lot of nausea and diarrhea and hiccups. The good news is the treatment appears to be working so far. His numbers are actually exceeding expectations so keep praying. I know we have a long way to go and statistically I am fooling myself, but I don't want him to leave me. I prayed with him last night and couldn't stop sobbing. This all still seems like a terrible nightmare and right before the holidays.

As always, David is in my prayers. Let's hope the second half of the treatment will be easier on him (and you). Rick.

You have my prayers that David will recover and you see a turn around by the Holidays....

Keep the faith and we'll keep praying for you both.

Also, you mentioned, "He has had a lot of nausea and diarrhea and hiccups.".. Just a reminder to stay up on the hydration, I know you have a ton on your plate, and I'm sure you are doing everything possible.

But just wanted to throw that out there...

Prayers,
John

Half way through is great. Even though chemo is making him sick , I am hoping when his blood count straightens out he will feel better. Hold tight to David...he needs you and you need him

Praying
