Appointments and Updates
Bob continues to heal very well from the surgery. He walks 3-5 miles a day and is dealing with the ostomy well. It looks like the ostomy won't be able to be reversed until after all his treatments...in 6-7 months. He has found, though, that as the chemo and radiology allows, he can do pretty much anything with the ostomy, including swim, which he hopes to begin again soon. The home health nurse, all the nurses and doctors we have visited are so amazed at how healthy he is and what a low, strong heartbeat he has (47-55 bpm is typical). They all say that his healthy habits will help him beat this cancer. He's always been an overachiever, so I'm sure that is so.
We are all doing well. I've handed over most of my commitments to younger moms and others willing and able to take over those programs so I can be there for Bob during his treatments. The adult kids and the younger kids are all stepping up and picking up slack and helping to make sure things run smoothly. It was such a blessing to have both Elizabeth and Bob's sister, Lisa, to come and help last weekend. They were both such help and such a joy!
Your prayers are most especially helpful in lifting us up and carrying us through this trial. Thank you all so much!!
