Last week, Garry had his first cyberknife procedure. He will have another on Tuesday and the last on Thursday. So far, there are no side effects at all and we expect this will eradicate the lung tumor entirely. Tomorrow, Garry starts his last chemo treatment here in Oklahoma. He will see a new general practitioner in Reno on Oct. 11th and then get referred out to the oncologists, radiologist, gastroenterologists, and the surgeon. In 4 to 7 months he will have the final surgery to remove the rectal tumor and he will be down for 2 months after that. But it is curative… and Lord willing that will end this nightmare except for visiting the doctor on a regular basis.
The week after this one we will be traveling home to Reno, Nevada with our oldest daughter and her husband. We have most things packed but loading and cleaning will be difficult. The drive will take us 4 or 5 days due to health, etc. It’s a 1,200-mile trip. Say a quiet prayer that it will be uneventful for us.
Garry is doing very well and is much his old self. His cancer markers are now down to less than 1 — the doctors are saying it is a miracle and I believe them. All of you have been a blessing to both of us as well — you are our miracle.
The final trip will be expensive and we still have mounting medical bills. If you want to help Garry out, you can give at GoFundMe. You can donate here. You can also donate on PayPal. My email there is [email protected] or you can use the PayPal link on the upper right side of NoisyRoom.net to get there. If you would like to donate some other way, email me at [email protected] and I’ll send you instructions.
We are so thankful to finally be heading home. In Reno, we will take over my son’s townhome. Once again, all of our children have been there for us and we love them to pieces.
Thank you to each and every one of you who have given in one way or another or who have said a prayer for us. We can never repay you except with our love and respect. I will update again after the move.
