Update Monday June 9

Lois is improving everyday. She is walking further and sleeping less; eating normal foods but often – she eats something every two to three hours. Saturday night Lois decided to try one pain pill instead of two and she still slept through the night. Monday, June 2, when we went to Iowa City to have the staples removed, was the last time Lois took pain medication other than at night. She does take some Tylenol and Ibuprofen during the day.

We have finished cleaning up the mess from the water in the lower level of the house. Tomorrow the carpet that won’t dry out will be removed. Although its been raining a lot the past few days there has been no additional water.

Sunday I drove to Indianola and spoke in the two morning services at the Christian Union church since their pastor was out-of-town. It was good to be with the people there some of whom we have known since 1993.

We are looking forward to our appointment with the Oncologist in Iowa City on Wednesday afternoon. Hopefully the flood waters in that area don’t postpone that meeting! We have quite a list of questions and are anxious to hear the options for reducing the liver tumors.

I’ll try to get out an update on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
