Eroy Mullins - "Papa"

I realize I am very far behind on the blog, but this update needed to come right through. I'll get the other stuff posted later.

We just got a call that Tim's beloved grandfather, "Papa" has gone on to be with the Lord tonight. He has joined his first wife of 50+ years, Helen, and all three of his children; Jim, Sandy, and Tim's mom, Jerri. He leaves behind a wonderful wife, Maggie, and many others who loved him very much. There are no arrangements at this point. We're going to do our best to get Tim home. This is definitely a difficult loss. Thank you for your prayers.

Chemo Round 3 In the Books!

This update may come a little late, but here all the same. Round 3 presented a couple of problems, but nothing major. Day 1 the nurses had some trouble with the port working. Thanks to some kind of med and Ernie, they finally got it working. It made for a long day though. They discovered Mom is low on potassium so she is now taking supplements for that. After the anti-nausea drugs wore off this time, she has been feeling very tired and a little sick. We do have some meds for that and we're fighting it off. I don't know if it's allergy related or not, but she's also had some congestion. Fighting that with drugs as well. We thank you so much for your prayers. Although she is having these inconveniences, it's amazing how we made it to week 10 in the chemo before all this came about. Just one more round to go!
