Nice day

Because it's such a nice day today, we sat on the back porch this morning, had breakfast, and had a nice talk with Derek, Airdrie, and the girls. Derek is having a good day. He has gained some more weight, but is still fairly limited in the kind of food he can take. None-the-less, things are looking up. His blood sugars are in very good shape. He had another CT scan yesterday, but doesn't know the results yet.

We have friends who phoned from Europe this morning; they have relatives who are dealing with cancer as well - it's also three steps forward and two steps back for them in their recovery. So, yes, it's frustrating for everyone concerned, but fighting cancer is a real, biological war and the battle lines move constantly. It involves family and friends, too; I think that's what makes us human. We are thankful to all of you for your support.
