Before that let me provide a quick update. Dad had an overall good weekend with picking up Pima at the airport Friday, picking up his sister (Pam) on Saturday and seeing the McKnights. We also celebrated a couple birthdays over the weekend. On Sunday Dad was running a very high fever which is never taken lightly with cancer. Luckily it came down early Monday morning and after some blood work he was cleared for chemotherapy. He also had a chest x-ray Monday to rule out pneumonia or fluid in the lungs. Although we haven't had our final results of the chest x-ray, the initial review looks very good and clear. I am happy to say that dad is feeling quite well today and was very excited to pass some air in his windpipe (something he hasn't done in 4 weeks)! This is a great sign! We are anxious for him to have his PET CT tomorrow which will be compared to his initial scan in the hospital. We will be able to measure his progress in the fight against this disease. I am hopeful and praying to report good news....... Either way he will finish his initial radiation treatments early next week and we will have his care transitioned completely to MD Anderson Cancer Center. I want to send out a special thank you to 'Aunt Pam' for staying with mom and dad. She has been very supportive and uplifting. Thank You!
