a little more info, but not much...

we found out today, that by God's Divine planning, Randy was able to keep his arm. i guess in other situations, or operating rooms, the dr. would've had to come out and ask for permission to remove the limb and shoulder since they would have to remove about 2 inches of good tissue around the tumor to prevent regrowth. the anesthesiologist commented to the dr. that he was shocked they had done this surgery as an outpatient procedure. that is proof that they didn't know what they were getting into before the surgery, but also proof that God is in control of all situations. we saved a heck of a lot of money in the meantime...

this emotional roller coaster is trying to tear us apart, but by God's grace combo'd up with all the super hugs and prayers, we make it through each day. i think fatigue is starting to set in. we were however able to find the perfect costumes for the kids tonight, and are able to keep some normalcy for them. one victory for the Miller's!!

we should know more next wednesday, staples are being removed on tuesday, and the dr's are leaning to it being "chondro sarcoma". that changes almost everyday though, so don't bank on it being the same in the end. it is however a bone cancer, they know that for sure, although it is not in his bones. bizzare. good news, no bone marrow surgeries!!!

goodnight.

good grief charlie brown. what a roller coaster indeed! You tell Randy he isn't working on Monday if it means me sitting on him for the day! I know! I'll hire him to play Halo 3 for me!

Cable has a good idea. If he doesn't sit on Randy Monday to keep him from going to work before his stitches are out I will sit on him...and he DOESN'T WANT THAT...LOL. Don't you have a "Honey Do List"..

i thought the x-box and shoot-em-up games Jeremy brought over would squelch the desire to ever work again, just sit on his butt and play games all day long.

we're here for you, sister. through the roller-coaster of life. we love you guys!
