Dear Angels touch this sweet boy and eliminate those fluids for him. Thank You!

I wanted to post my updates Tex:

No word on Cooper, and like you say the No News-Good News adage applies

It seems Tom is coming around, slowly but positively
The amazing news is when Anthony was home on his 30 day he we found out he is going to be a Daddy next month ;)

With Peter : This is straight from My Ei recently:

Hello, my sweet sis...

He had another Chemo session today and had labs done for our Kidney Doc visit next Wed. What a way to spend the day!
He feels better, but we can't be sure of much until the next set of numbers are reviewed.

And, he's got to watch his sodium, potassium and protein intake, due to the kidney failure.

His Creatinine improved from the hospital to the last doctor visit, but his potassium rose. When he was hospitalized, he got "stuff" to bring the potassium down, but hadn't had that until we saw the doc. and got a scrip for it....$60 bucks a bottle!

Also, his red cell count was higher, almost 12, so that means no Procrit shots for now.

Lady Doc:

His BUN rate was way high, but the doctor didn't say anything about's a combo of his condition and the drug regimen, I guess...maybe you could ask your doctor friend about what all the BUN number means????

Also Tex:

I wanted to share a gift that was given to me last week.

My little sister who has been a Demoncrat for all of her voting life, 20 years, after alot of soul-searching told me she is changing her party! Not just that BUT she is now a Fighting Freeper -smiles- Not only has she made me proud with her decision and joining here, but to the bravery of changing her lifelong way of voting, searching her soul . Ellie sweetie, I am so very proud of you and Thank God!

Boy, JP! You gave us a lot of info to digest in that short note!

I praise the Lord for what appears to be progress for Cooper.
Just like we saw with Logan, sometimes this progress is in the form of tiny baby steps.
We praise you for whatever you give Cooper and us, dear Lord.'ve got a new baby on the horizon!
Praise God! The little ones are the light and love of the world!

Ellie, welcome to FR.
There are no more staunch Republicans than the Demoncrats who have seen the light.
Follow your sister's lead until you get your feet on the ground, and you'll never go wrong.
God bless you for being here.
