Granny, could you please give us an update on your grandson's illness when you have an opportunity? He has remained on my prayer list. (((HUGS)))
Also to everyone else who have inquired about my 26 yr. old twin grandson who has been going through aggressive chemo for cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes due to testicular cancer 18 months earlier.
He had 4 rounds ( 5 days in a row, then two weeks off) and just finished his last round this past Friday, Oct. 3rd. He had been doing pretty well on the first 3 rounds, tired, nauseous but did go to work for 4 hrs. afterwards.
After this last round he hasn't done so well. He's extremely tired and weak. He finished it on Friday and slept the whole weekend, day and night. He didn't feel very well this morning and went into the doctor to see how his blood count was doing and it was okay. They told him that it was the result of all the chemo that he's been through. He looks so bad right now. I saw a picture that was taken of him on the last day as his parents brought him balloon's to celebrate. I cried when I saw how bad he looked. No hair of course, grayish colored skin and sunken in eyes.
He goes back to his doctor on 11/11/14 after having a CT PET Scan to be sure that all the cancer is gone. I am praying so hard that it is as I can't imagine that he would have to go through surgery and then more chemo and probably radiation also.
The whole situation is so sad and I wish I could do more to help him, but the boys don't seem to want any help. He even went to work today after leaving the doctor's office, I don't know how he does it. He actually has the highest production of business in the Law Firm and that's with battling cancer. He's a very strong young man and I love him so much.
Thanks for asking and we all sure appreciate the prayers for him. I lit two candles at church. One for him and the other for his brother to pass the Bar, which sadly he didn't. So that means his twin brother failed it 3 times now. He hasn't given up and thank God the Law Firm wants to keep him on, so at least he has a job until he takes it again.
Thanks for asking,
