Craig and I took off for the Chemo lab on Tuesday, January 4th, not knowing if we would be getting a treatment or not. It was a NOT! The Doctor suggested that we give his body a few more days to rebuild. She said that he really had no reserved, when he gets sick he could end up in the hospital again. So we start Monday Jan. 10th again.
Dr. Breyer told us that we that the chemo is not doing what she hoped it would do, which is stop the growth or even that its in the opposite direction. So we will most likely be finishing the last treatment and then starting a different one the next time. Die Cancer, DIE!
With everything that has been going on I forgot to mention that we had a special visit from the jolly old man himself and his lovely wife, yes Mr. and Mrs. Claus. It was before Christmas and the kids were up at their Grandparents. They came in and had a short visit with Craig and I. They said we don’t know you and you don’t know us but that’s not important. The important thing is that we are here to wish you a Merry Christmas and we hope you get well soon. They left us a fruit basket and a gift that I put under the tree to be opened on Christmas morning. To those of you that were involved in that, thank you very much. Another blessing of “Giving and Receiving”.

Holy Cow, now it is Wednesday and I promise that I will get this finished and posted today. Craig got his pump off today and received two more liters of fluid. We are going to stay on top of it this time. He is feeling pretty good. The days off have really helped him a lot. The Doctor said that bones show that the cancer is progressing but the liver looks a little better, like the tumors are showing signs of shrinking. A bright light in the week. The next chemo will be January 25th. Craig was rubbing his head today on the way to the doctors. He said, “I think my hair is growing”. I just laughed to myself and let him have his little positive moment. Now I WILL hit the post button, I promise!
Wait, Haha sorry, one last thought! McKaye and Ashlyn were having a little fun with Ashlyn's new necklace and took some fun pictures of themselves and Craig!! We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!!
This is the size of the necklace! They are so creative!
