feeling better

Hello dear friends,
Wanted to let you know that Steve is doing so much better it's almost unbelievable!  I told you all how much he hurt when he went to church Sunday before last.  That Monday when he got up he came down the hall smiling.  He said " I feel so much better than yesterday"!  All all week long he continued to feel better.  We went out to eat several times and this past Sunday went to a family reunion!!  Yesterday in spite of my trying to bully him around (lol)  he STILL mowed the grass with no problems.  He seems so much better that I wonder is this the calm before the storm?  The Bible tells us to not worry so I am going to continue to take it one day at a time. 
He has been reading his Bible everyday, a few chapters, some days a few verses and he has almost read  it completely through. The old testament is very hard to understand but he has made a lot of progress in getting it done.  I am very proud of him! 
I want to thank each one of you for your prayers for Steve and myself. He seems to be getting stronger, of course he still has pain but I think he has found the right combination of pain meds to keep it under control. He has medication for break through pain but has not had to have it in several days now. Praise God for that. Palliative care came again last week and she was very happy to see him in less pain. They are a wonderful supportive group of people and we are so glad to have them coming! 
I am so very sorry that so many are not doing well. You are in my heart and in my prayers.
I send my love to each of you,
Wanda

Dear Wanda, This is such good news. I can imagine how relieved you must feel to see Steve smiling and feeling better. This has to be so encouraging for Steve too. I will continue to pray that his pain goes away completely and also that his cancer remains stable...until that cure is found!

Love, Linda

FANTABULOUS News, Wanda! Sure you were concerned about him mowing, but we must let them do what they feel up to. That\'s one of the hardest things for me too. Sure don\'t want to make them an invalid as long as they\'re able to go and do. Praise God for every day...especially good ones!
We\'re all praying for miracles and a cure for this terrible monster.

Love to you both,
Ingrid

My Dear Friend Wanda,

what wonderful news, i am so glad too that Steve is on a good regiman of pain meds..Just remember one little hint of pain that Steve may have it\'s time to take a break thru pain med before , so all we can do is gtheit snow balls into unbearale pain.. This has happened to Tim alot and i asked the doctor and he told me this is why Tim is on break thru pain meds just for this reason... Wanda, i do realize how stubborn Tim and Steve are, so all we can is the best we can right ???????

Thanks so much for shareing how Steve is doing, it\'so good to hear better news !!
Take good care,
Love you,
Becca

Wanda,

I could not be HAPPIER for BOTH you and Steve!! You are CONSTANTLY on my mind, and to hear that his pain is being managed to a point where you can ENJOY each other? there is NOTHING BETTER at this time..except for the obvious I know.

SAVOR this time and these pain managed days so you two can LOVE each other, talk, hug cuddle, and as Vicki Harts husband always said...HAVE FUN BABY!!!

LOVE TO YOU BOTH, and just sit back and enjoy. And yes,....Thank God, for palliative care teams everywhere.
