RG’s Story

Site created on February 2, 2019

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.  

RG  was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2018. He began radiation treatments on January 30 and have 43. We’re staying st the Veteran’s House in Indianapolis during the week. The VA has been very good to us. 

He was diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s in December 2018. He has forgotten major events and gets confused easily about things he had no problem with a few years ago. We’re praying this progresses slowly.

Journal entry by Laurie Phillips

Just finished the first full week of radiation. Went well and quickly. Hoping all go this well!

RG’s meds to slow the Alzheimer’s progression didn’t agree with him. Tried all week to get a replacement or to see what else we can do. May be Tuesday before we have an answer. At least we’re in the right place!  He’s not doing badly. Still gets confused and has trouble remembering important things, but not any worse, yet. 

Thanks for prayrs and caring!!  Love y’all!
