On our way home tonight yet

We got out of ER in time to get to our appt with Dr Buckner.  He showed us the MRIs and the cancer spots have grown.  There is a spot on the lung that is 3/4" in size which is alittle larger than april.  The brainstem and spine also show growth of cancer in a few areas.  Nothing that warrants immediate attention but its not good news either.  His plan is to see what changes from today forward 6-8 weeks.  The reality is that a large portion of this time I was on nothing as have only been on Zolinza for 2 weeks.  I haven't felt any side effects to the Zolinza as of yet.

Thanks for your prayers.  I would just summarize this visit by saying its a reminder to take one day at a time.

    We read Psalms 46 tonight... my thoughts fled to you both. God... our refuge, our strength, a present help, a Lord, and again... our refuge. Words fail me to express my feelings, but know that you are loved, cared about, and every minute we have together is cherished.

    I so loved playing "dots" Sunday with Wesley... he teaches me a lot - preparing me to be a grandpa of a little bit older children. You are all so appreciated.

    May God wrap you in His arms, comforting your heart, healing your body where possible, and inspiring your spirit to an ever deeper patience and understanding of His holy and perfect will.

    Love Dean and Karen
