Update from the farm.....
As I said, dad will go for chemo today and since it is a very low dose to only keep him comfortable, he should not have too many side effects. The pain from the cancer and the exhaustion from the chemotherapy have become the new normal for my dad and it has mellowed him some. Not that he couldn't have used mellowing..... :o) Acceptance has come much more easy for him I think, and he is taking this time to evaluate and reevaluate his life and it making some changes in the way he views life and the people around him.
Some distressing news on mom though as she is scheduled for an EKG in September and is facing a heart valve repair or replacement and a possible triple bypass. The cardiologist wanted to do the operation a year ago, but was not sure that mom would survive the operation. I am not sure he is convinced that she will now, but the situation is becoming more serious, so the doctor will make the decision after the EKG.
So there are the current events from my little piece of the world. Continued prayers are very much felt and appreciated.
Until nex time.
