My Uncle received good news from the oncologist. The tumor is shrinking. Yay!! He still has several more weeks of chemo and radiation and once that is done he starts the experimental drug to give his immune system a boost and cause it to attack any remaining cancer cells. Praise God for good news!!

It's been a month since my pup, Samson, has had a seizure. So far it seems like the combo of meds is working. We have been able to successfully wean him down to only 1/4 tablet, twice a day of the phenobarbital and he should be completely off of it soon. His liver enzymes are back to normal but his kidney numbers are still off. He is still taking 3 capsules, twice a day of zonisamide and CBD twice a day. The plan is to keep him on those for awhile and then try to wean him off the zonisamide and keep him permanently on the CBD. His anxiety is much better also, which I believe is because of the CBD.

That is great to hear Brenda! I am still struggling with getting back into a regular reading schedule. It would probably make it much easier if my husband would read with me as it would be some wonderful US time as well as HIM time. I will have to discuss this with him.

Nichole, glad you are taking care of yourself concerning screenings. I watched my mother waste away. The prep is nasty, but it can prevent a horrible diagnosis later. I've had three relatives die from colon cancer. I'm kind of a spokesperson now for getting tested.

I'm on the 5 year plan also Eileen. My father and his mother both had it. Neither one of them survived a year after their diagnosis. It's no fun to prep for the procedure but I'd rather do that then deal with colon cancer. My 186 lb father wasted away to under 100 lbs in under 11 months.

Glad you are doing better Brenda. Take care of you!!!
I hope your uncle will have good news when he gets tested. Colon cancer runs in my family so I go every 5 years. Catching the cancer early usually means all is fine. It's removed and you move on. Tell your doctor about your uncle so he can have you tested when it's time. Prevention is the only way to go. I watched my mother suffer for 3 1/2 years with it.

emoticon My uncle's test that was positive doesn't necessarily mean he has colon cancer. It could just be polyps. He will have testing on the 31st and then we can find out for sure. That's good news and what I would have expected, but my mom had us thinking we were finding out how bad things were and what his treatment options were. It may come to that but for the moment I will relish in God's grace.

Thank you for the prayers for my family. Grandma seemed to be doing OK when were there over the weekend. She's a stubborn old girl but she did her therapy on Sat/Sun. We think she was scared because the hospital therapist was rough with her and hurt her so we think that scared her from trying at rehab. Both the therapists she has had at rehab so far have been really nice and gentle with her so we are hoping she will be a bit more confident and not so difficult. She was eating a little while we were there also. I imagine that I will need to drive my mom back down there again in the very near future.

We haven't heard from Ethan's center on how he did this week. Hopefully, my sister will hear from them today. The center is called My Father's Arrows and it is in Jay, FL. When you pray from Ethan please pray for the center also. They really could use some funding and we know that God will provide the funding and a way for them to continue to do His work. The place is staffed almost exclusively by volunteers.

Ok so a couple of Praises.

My grandma was transferred to the rehab center so she should start to improve more. She is a VERY stubborn Italian grandma and was giving the hospital and physical therapy folks a hard time, refusing to eat and get up. The rehab center won't take any of her stubbornness so we hope to see her start getting more mobile after her hip surgery. I'll be driving my mom down there to see her this weekend.

My sister and I drove her son Ethan to a God centered treatment center in the corner of NW FL. They have experience with children like him and once we got there an met the woman that runs it I immediately felt like this was where he needed to be. He will receive care for a year before discussions will be had about his progress and whether he is able to go home or not. He has a lot of trauma and emotional stuff to overcome and learn how to deal with. My sister is struggling with her feelings about the whole situation (guilt, sadness, relief, grief, you name it). She knows this is what is best for him and everyone involved but it's still hard. We got home very late last night, well actually this morning at 2:30.

Brad did not go home on the 20th but he did get to go home a couple days later. He got to spend this Memorial Day weekend at home with his family. So far the reports shared by his wife are that he is doing really well and slowly working back into a "normal" routine. Thank you everyone for praying for this family! God really did answer our prayers.
