Lung Biopsy

Today I had a lung biopsy to check out something that showed up in a CT scan of my left lung during my last stay in the hospital in March. The biopsy went smoothly. We are just waiting for the results which won't be known until next week. We don't think it is anything serious and are praying that we will get a clean report. We would appreciate your prayers too.

Spring is Finally Here, Summer is Coming

It's been awhile since I have blogged. I just want to let you know that I am doing okay. I am still having problems with bladder infections (UTIs), but I have also been able to begin the maintenance therapy for my multiple myeloma on a monthly basis. It's nice now not to have to go to the clinic so often. I did contract another gastrointestinal virus in March that required 2 trips to the emergency room and a 4 day stay in the hospital, primarily for dehydration. That was not a happy time but I am much better now. I'm happy to say that my strength and stamina have slowly been improving and my appetite has come back which is GREAT!

On the plus side, Terri and I were able to get away to Florida for a few days in February although the weather was cool and overcast most of the time. We also took all of the grandkids to Great Wolf Lodge indoor water park in the Wisconsin Dells for a weekend in March and I felt good enough to celebrate nephew Wylie's wedding to Kristen Redman at the end of the month. What great times! And we were finally able to get up to the stuga in Michigan for a long weekend just this past week. Time to get it and the family summer house ready for summer. It felt good to do so and to connect with all of our friends up there. If you are so inclined, please pray that my health continues to improve and that we will all be able to enjoy a glorious spring and summer.
