Update Day 5

This is the first day of my blog.  I have decided to update friends and foes alike about my cancer treatment as the days go by.  Yesterday( the fourt day of treatment) was by far the worst yet.  I suppose it will only get worse from here on until I get through this.  With God's help and good friends to pray and help, I will get through this.  I go for my 5th chemo treatment and 2nd radiation treatment today.  Daughter Meg will go with me today.  My kids are all saints through all this.  They have all helped so much.  My wife Tammy is the one I lean on most.  Of course I have been leaning on her for 30 years now.  She has been and continues to be my rock..

I'll try to give updates as I can on this blogg but I never know how I am going to feel.  I could not have done it yesterday.  Today I awoke with the words to an old hymn "Hallelujah, thine the glory, Halleujah, amen.  Hallelujah thine the glory. Revive us again."  Sing that with me today.


  1. Good start on your blog, ol' buddy. Real glad you're doing this -- gives us a great seat in the cheering section!

  2. Today was radiation only. Still really weak but not feeling too bad. With God and friends to stand with I can make it. Everyone says hang in there but I would rather stand than hang.

  3. I love that about you. Stand and fight rather than just hang there.
