Stomach Virus

Well, this sounds wrong, but Praise the Lord, it was a stomach virus! Al is feeling much better this morning. His stomach muscles are pretty sore, but he's able to get out of bed.
After talking with his oncologist last night, he said that it was not related to the chemo or the cancer. A nasty bug going around. Thanks to all who were praying and those who sent those sweet emails. (You know who you are, Wade, Emily, Norma, Cheri, Terri...)
Hospitals are such a good place to pick up all kinds of germs. We have gotten lax in our disinfecting of hands and stuff when we are in public places. They disinfect the chemo chairs, but not the elevator buttons, bathroom handles, waiting room chairs... It is so easy for these germs to spread.
Hopefully, this is the last catastrophe we will have to deal with for a few days. At our house, it is never very long between catastrophes of some kind.
