A Bit Better

Steve has been very sick - many small problems that together are huge. After a hard month, things are a bit better. Steve's lungs are clear and his kidney functions have been gradually improving. Chemo will not be scheduled until he is healthy enough to handle the treatment.

At a particularly low point, I asked the neuro-oncologist what she thought about our situation. She said Steve is a fighter and as long as he is determined, she is with us and will do all she can. It was comforting to feel her strength and determination to help my sweetheart.

Our hope is that Steve can have an improved quality of life.

Thank you for the visits. Thank you for taking out our garbage cans and feeding our dog. Thank you for the encouraging voice messages. Thank you for your prayers.
