Home again, home again jiggety jig...

We had coffee this morning at the amazing Milstead & Co. Coffee place.
If you're ever in Fremont in need of delicious coffee, go there!

Yesterday Harv and I decided that we didn't want to stay in a hotel anymore so I checked bus schedules and discovered that there was availability on the Tuesday bus to Seattle. It was at that moment that we decided to check out of the hotel early and come home after this morning's appointment. 

We are home. Ahhhhhhhhh!

Harv will ride the bus down tomorrow for his shot and then ride home in the afternoon. We are hoping for no delays in either the bus trip down or the appointment. He has only a small window between appointment and catching the bus for home at 1:00. Please pray for smooth everything tomorrow.

He'll drive down on Wednesday morning because the appointment is too early for the bus to take him... 

And, then, Thursday we're back to an infusion day. 

Things have gone well overall, but he still has a rash on his stomach where the first few injections were given. He's using Benadryl cream and ice packs to relieve that. His blood pressure is borderline hypertensive, but not in the dangerous area. Just need to keep an eye on it.

We are hoping that his blood work on Thursday shows that there are fewer circulating cancer cells and that progress is being made.

I would appreciate prayer for a little bit of peace and rest. I feel a little bit "keyed up," as my mother used to say. Neither of us has slept really well lately, but I have a feeling that some of the reason is just 'cause we're gettin' older. :-/  Whatever the reason, I sure would love to wake up feeling really rested and refreshed.

Thank you, again, wonderful people of the world! Sure do appreciate all of your support and encouragement.

Love you.
