Friday, August 1

Just a short note to fill you in.

David had his second round of chemo this week. Monday, his mom Carol and I were with him. Tuesday it was Angela and Wednesday, Elisabeth and John. All in all things went well. He didn’t feel too bad those days, but Thursday wasn’t a good day. He got up, got ready and went to work in the morning…and thought on the way….”what the heck am I doing? I should just turn around and go home.” He continued on to work and lasted the morning, but came home at lunchtime. Following a light lunch, he got right into bed and took a long nap. As previously written, sleep seems to be a great healer (and maybe a great “forgetter”, too), when you are sleeping you don’t realize how bad you are feeling. Today, Friday, he can look forward to a quiet, restful weekend at home, recuperating, and sleeping, not doing too much.

Also, I ask your prayers for Jerry’s family. Sadly, I have to write that he passed away July 24, so please think of them, and keep them in your prayers.

Not much else to report ….. I guess, that is a blessing!

Thank you for your prayers and support!

Love, Connie

    This is the first time we have been able to log in on this link and get the full story of your treatment and recovery. We were all passing around a faulty link and thanks to Fran, we got the right one today. This is a wonderful way to inform all of us of your recovery process.
    I am very sorry for all that is happening and all that you are going through with this terrible cancer. We are praying for your total and complete recovery each and every day.
    Love you,
    Cousin Jan, Mark and Michael
