Just an update

Yucky cancer news:
We found out through his last PET scan than the tumors have quit shrinking. They are however starting to calcify, whatever that means. The bone lesions didn't show up on that scan, so we were hopeful that they have gone away, until yesterday. He had a more focused BONE scan that showed that they are still there. Let's just say, we weren't in the celebratory mood we thought we were going to be in. It was a littel shocking to be honest. It feels like 1 step forward, 2 steps back. This whole thing sucks!!! He is starting to drum again, and it helps to take out his frustrations. One side effect of that, if you've ever seen him play, is broken drum sticks. Lots of splinters all over our living room floor. So much for going bare foot in the house. So I'm thinking about setting up a drum stick fund (hahaha). I can't work enough to keep up with his habit.

That's all the news for now. He's continuing on with the endless rounds of chemo. Starting to get a tan on that bald head of his... And we are really enjoying the time that we get to spend together. OOOOOHHHH! if you are reading this and live in Redding, we are, well Amy Endecott has set up a prayer meeting at the Caldwell park this Saturday at 1pm. You can find us at the first parking lot as you turn in. Please come join us. I have a feeling that God is going to use His people to heal Randy, not chemo.

I can't make it but will be on my knees in Southern Cal. God is touching people's lives through your family, keep up the good fight.

I have to work until 4 on Saturday! :( I will take my lunch at 1 though and spend it praying in agreement with the group for healing for Randy!

Hey! I was just thinking, we should call Air 1 and ask them to take a few minutes around 1 that day to pray for Randy and asking their listeners to stop and pray for him as well. I can't tell you how many times I've heard about Randy on Air 1! Talk about using God's people to heal! That would be phenomenal! If you want me to call it in so you don't have another thing to do, let me know! But I wouldn't want to call it in without your permission. So let me know how I can help!
