Today's visit . . .

Daniel wanted me to write a quick note about today's appointment since he is, in his words, "in good spirits but wiped out." (The appointment was at 1:15 p.m., and we finished chemo at about 6:30 p.m.) Overall, today's news was good. The chemo oncologist thinks the tumor is better/smaller than it was last week - answered prayer - but she also said she sees radiation therapy in Daniel's near future. Her main reason is this: since the tumor isn't exactly melting away with chemo alone, a combination of radiation and chemotherapy is expected to work better; she said that Daniel is young and strong, and she believes his body can handle the two. Daniel will give more details tomorrow when he's had time to rest. Thanks to everyone for your fervent prayers.

Blessings to you all,

Doug (Sasquatch)

We are so glad to hear that there seemed to be some improvement. We have been praying for God to heal you. Kaitlyn says she loves Daniel and cannot wait to see him another day. Andrew is so sweet in asking God to make you all better. I hope the Chemo does not have the same gut wrenching responce as last time.

Hugs, Kisses and many prayers,

Michelle, Will, Andrew and Kaitlyn
