Update on my older sister, here cancer is in remission! Hooray! DH is stable in his treatment. No new growth in the cancer. His cancer tumors are down to 7.3. I pray that things continue this trend.

Things are still difficult, with the truck and DS's car having issues, but we find a way. I hate that we don't have any more savings, but DH thinks he can find a part time job for the days he isn't on chemo.

Thanks for all your support and encouragement.

Dh is doing pretty good, his blood pressure is up, so he is going to have to go back on meds for that. He will be having a lapriscopic proceedure to see if he can have the HEPIC proceedure again. He had this last year and it really helped in the fight. God is Good!

Still thinking of you Bernice!

My bestest friend now has a very terminal cancer, if she gets two years that will be a miracle for sure.

Fight the Fight!

DH is stable in treatment for cancer. His Laproscopy showed no new growth, but no diminishing of the tumors either.

My older sister is currently in remission for her brain cancer.

God is good!

Well a lot has happened, the stress of DH's cancer and my job, I walked out of my job. I just couldn't take it anymore being yelled at for asking a simple question. I am fighting for unemployment, since my boss insists I just quit, but since January, every day was just worse and worse. With payroll, billing and keeping up with the drivers, calls at night and trying to make sure DH was at home was taken care of, the stress became too much, when you ask question and get your head bit off.

It would help financially to get unemployment, but I guess this will go down as a "He said -she said" and my former boss (turned big fat jerk) will win.

I do have another job to start on Monday. This will be a major move from TN to MN. Thank God for great friends. We will be closer to a VA hospital, 20 minutes verses 2 1/2 hours to Memphis for treatment. All his care will be in one place. I just hope the lag time of transferring care for him, isn't going to be too long. His tumor markers are up from two months ago and I am scared. In the long run, financially this will help, but at what cost?

I will be offline for awhile, cause I don't know how things will go. God bless! B
