A hunting we will go....

Al's symptoms seem to be getting better one minute, but then not the next. It is really hard to tell how he is doing these last few days. He is still not sleeping through the night, even with pain pills or sleeping pills. The neuropathy seems to have gotten better in his legs, but he still can not walk very well or stand up for more than a few minutes. His arm and shoulder still hurt.
We drove down to the deer lease on Saturday. Took some corn for his feeder. Our son-in-law, Mark and oldest grandson, Chance were there and helped him get that done. After chatting with some of the folks hanging around the campfire, he was ready to come home. He didn't even take his rifle with him! You know he's feeling bad.
Got up and went to church, but then he turned around and went back home. Said he slept pretty good for a few hours.
I guess his system is just all mixed up and doesn't know when to sleep and what to do.
Looks like the recovery from this last chemo is going to be very, very slow. Meanwhile, he has started the Revlimid pills (the 2nd chemo he took last year) without the steroid booster. It's hard to tell if he is having any side effects from it, since he still has so much lingering from the Velcade.
Please continue to pray that he does recover well enough to have a better quality of life. He is getting very discouraged to have no energy to do anything.
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with your family. We are giving much thanks to our Heavenly Father for all his grace and mercy to us.

You are such a wonderful inspiration to me. I am so thankful that you came by my house that October afternoon to invite me
to the womens bible study since I
did not have the nerve to go it alone. I am so thankful that Al
has a God loving wife to encourage
and uplift him. My heart and prayers are there for you and Al.
Press on and have a delicious Thanksgiving Day. God bess you
as you have blessed me.

Love and miss you,
