Charlie has started radiation therapy this week and is also back on the steroids. Hopefully by the end of the week he will begin to get some relief.

Please keep saying prayers...we need all the prayer worriors out in full force!

I visited Kim and Charlie over the weekend. Charlie is really having a lot of back pain, most likely due to the lesions on his spine. He was not able to get out of bed to go downstairs. He is scheduled to start radiation therapy, once again, to the spine this Friday. Hopefully he will get some relief. His pain med had been switched to morphine by mouth but it's not really giving him the relief he needs to ambulate and be comfortable.

Kim did call Dr. Potz for the CAT scan results...much to her dismay...he reported that it was a mixed bag. Some tumors shrunk while other grew a little. Not the report they were hoping to hear.

Charlie is also suppose to get another MRI of the hip and spine I believe.

Please keep them in your prayers...Charlie and Kim are having a tough time right now as both are mentally and physically weary.

Some good news would be such an uplifting and welcome change!

Today Charlie went to see Dr. Potz, however the results of his CT from yesterday were not available yet. I think they were very disappointed to hear that they will have to wait 2 more weeks until they see the doc again and get a clearer picture of how Charlie is doing with his treatments.

This whole process is really beginning to wear on both Kim and Charlie. It is time for some good news.

Please keep praying for is all seemingly harder now for them. Charlie is tired of feeling lousy and Kim is all worried out!

I will keep posting as long as you all keep praying!!!

Charlie is finally done with this round of chemo...but he still continues to be very tired. Kim said he is sleeping all kinds of hours and according to Charlie, as of late, he is having issues with food tasting very salty. Hopefully this will subside as he is done with chemo. He will be scheduled at the end of this month beginning of next for a CAT scan.This scan will let us know if the chemo worked and if he has achieved a remission.

Thank you for the continued prayers...each one is a blessing.

I will continue to keep you posted!!!
