been so busy and havnt had much time to get on here lately but do want all of you know I still pray for you, all of you.
first week out of treat ment was hard but then by the mid of second week , ron just started eating no matter what. pain or dryness he ate.
he lost a total of 40 pounds, got by without the peg tube thank god for that.
he has gained energy, able to do things now without shaking. I had to take the spark plugs to the mower to work with me. lol
he now has gotten some saliva back which makes eating a little better.
and he was so excited last week cause he could taste his tea! for the first few sips. he was able to taste crust of pizza but nothing else on it.
he tastes salty or sweet.
so things are going very good in the progress.
we thought it would be months to get where he is now , so we wonder if treatment was strong enough since he is doing so well now.
he is going to go back to work on thursday half days to start. we weill see. he has been doing the driving on our errands and hasnt gotten tired and I know he can drive up to an hour now so I know he will be able to get back to work.
our 6 year old fell and broke his radial bone , had to have it rebroke a week later. then another week later he had to go in for surgery again and have screws put in it.
most of you know rons aunt died of leukemia last month, she had uterine cancer 14 years ago, uncle is getiing on day by day. only relatives with in 3 states of us so we help each other.
so all in all, we keep going.
ron has to wait till mid november for his scan, it will be just a ct scan, I thought they did pet scans, is this the norm?
T , hope you read this, you just had your scan, was it a pet scan or ct?
god bless you all
