Life can be Hard

Dan is eating lots better. In fact he is eating a lot. That is great. A few days after getting home from Seattle he had a setback. One evening he was very confused and sorta unaware of things. When I asked him questions I was not getting the right response. Not even close.

I e-mailed his doctor at Virgina Mason. She said to start him on some steriods if I had some left from before. I did, so I did. He had an appt. at the cancer center here a couple days later with the main doctor. Still confused, but not quite as much. He upped his steriods and gave me a schedule to taper off them after a bit. They must have worked, things are getting better.

Still a bit slow, but able to have conversations now and do a few things. He even mowed the lawn. I did the trimmer. I don't trust him around my flowers. I would have none left. Every day is a bit better. It is slow, but at least there is progress.

Again, Thanks to all the people who have come and helped me out with things. Our son, Kris leaves Saturday to go back to school. I knew I couldn't keep up with things around here by myself, so I have a young man living here now to help out. He is taking a few classes at CBC and preparing to go on his mission for the church. He will be a LIFESAVER!!!!

  1. Hey, Sheryl. It's great you are doing this blog! What a great way for us to keep track of what's happening with Dan. I should have gotten on here earlier! I just wanted to let you know that you are in our every prayer and we think of you all the time. Saw you come in to sacrament meeting but didn't get to you in time to talk. I'm happy that Dan is able to eat again. That will be ultra-critical in his fight! I love you and will come anytime with my scrub bucket and rags to do anything your little heart desires. Give Dan my love. Nadine
