One of the very hard parts of all this is not to forget about Cody's siblings. It is so very easy to forget about them in the hustle and daily trauma that hospital life brings. We are trying very hard to keep them well informed. Diane brought them to the hospital today. They arrived about the time Cody got out of surgery. He was so happy to see them and they him. They worry so much about Cody. I may try to take them to a movie tomorrow.. :D
Well here is the latest. It has been confirmed that the cancer is back in his liver. That is really no surprise at this point. The preliminary results of the bone marrow test is negative. Diane signed papers this evening for permission to start chemo in the morning. The chemo will run off and on until the 27th. Then he will stay at least 24 more hours. After that, he will come home and we will watch his blood counts. After a couple of chemo treatments we hope there is an effect on the cancer. If so we will be making trips between New York and Georgetown. This is the beginning of a very long journey that I am more than willing to make. I just hope it is easier on Cody this time.
While praying for Cody please mention my wife also. She has a very hard time with this and she needs the strength.
I also want to mention my Aunt June. She is in failing health and may not make it much longer. She has always loved me even when I wasn't so lovable.. :D
Bless you all...
