Still Plugging Away
There really hasn't been much to report lately. No news is good news. Dad continues to do well at home. He has learned to monitor himself and knows when he needs to go in for an IV. He usually needs a little boost every two weeks or so. Dad enjoys being out and about or having visitors stop by. He is walking pretty well with a cane around the house. But, he still uses a walker or wheelchair when he is out.
Next week, Dad will see the local doctor that is treating his amyloidosis. We hope to have more test results that will determine if the chemo treatments are successfully reducing the amyloid level in his blood.
Thanks for all you do for all of us. Your prayers, help and words of encouragement are so meaningful to all of us.
