Day 3

MUCH BETTER DAY!
As i was walking in his door this morning, he was texting me. that's a great sign. i think i dropped my backpack, and ran to him, then remembered that i had to wash my hands, THEN i ran back to him and he smiled real big. He got upset because he thought i hadn't told him goodnight last night. i laughed, and tried to explain how the night ended from my perspective. He was very deliberate tonight with his goodbye.

most of the day he was up and happy. still not really eating. he did attempt broth and crackers. he says he's just not feeling the need to eat, that it doesn't feel like the most important thing to do, so why worry over it... ok? the dr. said it's fine to go a few days, but they are giving him something to boost his appetite. He also has to take a steroid for some reason, and the pharmacist told me tonight that it causes irritability. (explains the mood swings today).

I have to give kuddos to the Target pharmacist. they are SOOOO on it. he said that his family has gone through cancer a lot and assumed that's what was going on with randy, because of the drugs i had to purchase for him, so he took extra steps to make sure it was all ready before i got there. even one that wasn't faxed in. he just already "knew" he would need it. GOOD JOB TARGET!!!

he gets to come home tomorrow. he's all ready to bust out of there @ midnight, but it just would be too hard to have someone set with the kids so late, but he said he plans on taking the bus. knowing him and how sweet the nurses are, i fully expect to see him in the middle of the night.

Wow if I get in the car now I wouldn't make it, darn! I'm glad that he is feeling better! We will continue to pray everyday till those words are spoken, cured, remission! Even then we pray praise to our Lord who is bigger than all.

I know we don't know each other well, but I want you to know that God is moving...

My husband, Matt, was talking to his boss yesterday about Randy because his other boss has cancer and is currently going through chemo too. When he finished, his boss said to him, "you know, you are the fourth person to tell me about him today...I think I'm supposed to pray for him!" Of course, he has no idea who your husband is and it amazes me that God is finding and directing his children to pray for another brother that they don't even know! Awesome!
