Popping Cancer Update

Well, we've finished off two more three-week rounds of chemotherapy and now it's time to see if it made a difference.

My oncologist is scheduling a CATscan even as you read. I should be able to get in and get scanned in the next day or two. This is an important scan, since we're running out of options if this brand of chemo didn't work.

I'll let you know when the scan is and what the results are as soon as I know something. In the meantime, I could use all the prayer/good karma/happy thoughts/large cash settlements you can send my way. I've been having a little trouble breathing lately. Once or twice a day I have to conciously breathe in and out, which is troubling. Sometimes when I wake up at night I'm making an eerie rasping noise from somewhere in my lungs.

Still, it reminds me I'm alive, and it certainly beats the alternative, which is not breathing at all. Nyquil and Dayquil help the breathing, so maybe I just picked up a little bug.

All of that is coming your way (except the large cash settlement, after all I am in Seminary).

Pouring the good thoughts your way, Dan.

I ditto Carla! I guess I could send you the money we get from selling our home. Ummmmm then again, we might need that. There are children involved and 4 adults. Ya know.. That whole household of 7 thingy for the next ???? years.

It is the thoughts and prayers that count though right? Right......

Keep an eye out for Ed McMahon. He agreed to drop by a large cash settlement. You may have caught wind of it in the mail. When I got mine, I declined and said, "Send to Dan Champion in Ohio". It never came back to me so I guess it successfully went your way. Congratulations!

I'm sending over what little good karma I've got stashed away.

Well, I guess it's up to me to send the cash.

It's in the mail. Along with hugs and prayers. Be careful, all that stuff was really difficult to stick in an envelope.
