Strange weather

As I suspected, Al felt good most of the day on Monday despite the icy weather, which usually puts him in a bad mood. He felt so good that he did not go to the doctor for his congestion & forgot to take his pain meds. He was hurting by the time he arrived home. He has learned to take the advice of our good friend Nurse Prescott: take your pain meds on a regular schedule and keep them in your system for the best results. When he does that, he has a good day.

So, he went to the doctor on Tuesday.

We got some rotten news over the weekend. Another member of our church who was diagnosed with this same cancer last year and underwent a stem cell transplant, has been given only 6 months to live. Al called to talk with him, but it was a very difficult conversation to have. Keep Larry and his wife in your prayers.
