Don is in his last round of chemo for now...he has one day of chemo, then 4 days of radiation left. It broke my heart tonight to hear him say how sick he was. He has done so well up to this point, but we both knew this round would be different....doesn't make it easier for either of us. He is physically sick, more tired than he has ever been, and is questioning everything...I know this is the way it usually happens, but it doesn't make it easier none-the-less.

We have made the hard stance that the kidlets will not be seeing him until we go down and pick him up. They are in school, so they are around viruses and bacteria daily, and anything he gets now could kill him, so it is just not worth it. What makes me super unhappy is that my girlfriend is going to see him...she has 2 kidlets in my kids school, so I know they have been exposed (got a lot of snotty noses - including mine-on my hands).

He is supposed to be home in November sometime, so we are focussing on that.

Me, well, things aren't the best physically...nice that I get to hang with P this weekend because I REALLY need it:)

God would not give me more than I can handle...I just have to figure out a way (by looking inside me) to make that happen.

    Trish-you're right,He won't give you more than you can handle. I'm sure you're screaming,"I don't want to be this strong!!!" You've got alot going on~He's carrying through it all.
    Sorry, I had some not nice things going thru my head about your friend going to see him. Maybe the nurses will stop her at the door? I'm sure you told her that you're not taking the kids there b/c of germs...GGGRRR...

    My thoughts to Don, you and the kidlets. This is -the- worst time of the treatment from what I understand (from others). Hang in there. Hugs from me to both!
