You have been and will remain in our prayers. Please keep the faith and hang in there, and of course let me know if there is anything personal I can do for you and/or family. You know I am only a few hours or so drive away.

I can't thank you all enough for the support and encouragement. My local oncologist said that since I was still able to get around and feed myself,etc, that there was a pretty good chance to beat this. My age is against me, 71 next month, but I'm pretty hopeful. I hate how it's hurting my wife, she lost her last three siblings in less than a year from cancer.Again thank you all so much.

often the wives get overlooked in these situations and need extra love and encouragement too. please give your wife a big hug and a kiss for me, harold, and tell her how much she is appreciated. my thoughts are with you both.

I know what you mean about the wife. My wife lost her mother to cancer when my wife was 15. When I had my bout I could see the worry in her face regardless how much she tried to hide it. That hurt more than the chemo!

For what it’s worth I found that whey protein really helped me. I bought the chocolate favored powder that I mixed with milk. It is the same whey protein that body builders use. It really helped me with my energy level. You may want to check it out.

Good luck my friend.

if protein supplements are in order, then i heartily recommend Ensure supplement shakes. with my swallowing difficulty my doctor prescribed it to keep my weight up. walmart Equate is cheaper but fewer flavors. the ensure butter pecan is scrumptious. i get it through the va canteen for 16.50/24 case. i drink 2 per day and have kept my weight up but my fingernails grow like weeds. howard, are you a veteran? the va has several programs that would benefit both you and your wife. one is 'respite care' where they will send a nurse to your home so your wife can get a break. check with your nearest va.

Howard, I was talking with my wife about your situation, and she told me about someone she knows who had lymphoma around her heart, her lungs, both kidneys, her liver and stomach, well pretty much the whole abdominal cavity including small and large intestines. She was diagnosed about three years ago, today she is free from any of it.

We belive her positive outlook and the fact that she believes in prayer, brought her through this, so don't give up!

Dang....This is addicting.

Everybody's got their favorite cure for cancer, and they are all valid to some degree or other, even for older folks. As time and energy permit, have a look at as many as you can, and deploy the ones that resonate for you. People all over the world are curing all kinds of cancer in the most amazing ways - some of them very inexpensive and easily accessible. (Natural healing has been an interest of mine for many years - PM me if you would like some help finding information on some of the more useful strategies.)

All I'm really suggesting is that you take an active hand in your "cure", and involve your wife as much as possible so she feels like a valued part of the process. Team up, get pro-active, and enjoy the challenge of making yourself a little stronger every day.

Hello everyone. I just went to see Howard at the Hospital. He had just gotten into a room and was getting blood work. He and his wife seemed in good spirits. I'll check on him later this week and let everyone know how he is doing. occ
