Hello Family & Friends, Hope everyone had a good Labor Day Weekend! Catching up –
SUNDAY – Our daughter, Emily went with her dad to chemo. Even though their father daughter time was spent together in the Infusion Center, Tom & Emily enjoyed each other’s company. Another day of chemo completed for Tom. A victory! Tom and I were able to see our grand kids on Sunday. The best medicine yet! This brought great JOY to Tom and me! Our granddaughter Hope had a surprise for Tom. Hope cut out hearts. She gave a heart to each of her classmates. She shared a few of her favorite things about her Papa with her class. The kids wrote get well messages to Tom. They included a few jokes for him. As Tom read the notes from Hope’s classmates, he smiled and even had a few tears.
MONDAY – Tom had Blood Work and chemo. A long wait on Monday for chemo. Good news, the pharmacist was working on Monday in the Infusion Center. Tom’s perscription was ready quickly. Tom had to have additional Magnesium & Potasium along with his arsenic.
TUESDAY – Blessings & Challenges -7AM Blood work, EKG, DR. apt & Infusion. A long morning for Tom! However, a productive morning. BW -#’s are improving! Tom is no longer on a special diet (microbial). Will start taking Potasium pill, 1x a day. He will have a 2nd bone marrow biopsy on Thursday at 10:15 in the Dr.’s office. Please keep Tom in prayer on Thursday. Tom continues to feel very fatigued. His appetite is fair. Eating small amounts for strength.
The 3 words from the healing chain are MOTIVATE, HUMOR & CHALLENGE.
Your prayers MOTIVATE, Tom & our family to keep persevering one day at a time. It’s true, Laughter, HUMOR is the best medicine! The CHALLENGE is to accept the things you can not change, cancer.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Tom & our family. You remain in our prayers.🙏🙏
All our Love,
