Doctor Today

                                     One of my favorite pictures from our wedding

We went to the doctor again today. Curtis hasn't been eating much and is still losing weight. The doctors put him on Marinol that will help with his appetite and also nausea. He has been having some nausea intermittently. He has 3 more weeks of chemo and radiation that is supposed to end March 11th. He is supposed to have an 8 week break before his main surgery which will be mid May. He is doing pretty well otherwise, very tired. Curtis could really use some encouragement this week, if you would like to leave a comment I will make sure he sees it:)


  1. I am amazed daily at how well Curtis and Shannon are handling this season of their lives together. Being a mother, I would love to remove all of the discomfort, but I know we will all be changed for the better in the long run. Lance Armstrong said, “If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell.”

    Thank you for your continued prayers, support, and encouragement for Curtis and Shannon!

  2. I am excited for you. Only 3 more weeks and then a break. I pray that the Marinol will make you want to eat all the time and that you will gain some weight. Gees, how would that be, never had that problem before. Keep smiling and trusting God. He has it all under control. I continue to pray for you both, that you will have the needed strength and determination to keep fighting.
    All my love,
    Aunt Marilyn
