It has been so long since I have been on this site. A great deal has happened. The main thing is that Steve is losing his kidney function. We have an appointment on Tuesday with the local dialysis clinic. Just an informational meeting and to go over the various kinds of dialysis available. Our center is about 12 miles from our house so that's not bad. One option is to do it at home. I am so scared of that. We have a little pug and he is a shedding machine. That concerns me greatly. That is the best option if you are still fairly active. Our daughter says to not jump the gun and to and wait and hear the counselor out.
I pray that his kidney function will be ok for a while longer. I can so remember begging God for more time when they took him away from me those years ago, to remove his kidney. August 4 will be 15 years. It's hard to believe that he has survived so long. He is still on the drug Sutent. In October it will be 7 years non stop on it. It has given him more time by slowing down the growth of the tumors and I am so grateful for the research going on now. One day who knows someone will come up with a cure. I pray for it and I know all who are here do the same.
I pray for each of who are here, that our Lord will give you the strength and courage to face tomorrow. I could use some prayers that I will be strong enough to care for Steve. We just celebrated our 47th anniversary this month. Wow! We were high school sweethearts and are still moving on strong together.
Take care and God bless each of you,
