The last entry was October 2004. Since that time Frank enjoyed another year of remission from the Myeloma. And we enjoyed it right along with him!! We had a normal routine again in every respect and it was such a gift from God. We've been busy, just like you, doing things like: school work, landscaping, soccer games, baseball games, track meets, guitar, piano and drum recitals, band concerts, lots of carpooling, teaching sunday school, hanging out with friends and family and going to bed late and getting up early!
In Oct 2005, we discovered Frank had relapsed. It was unexpected, but like we'd done before, we put those boxing gloves back on and got right back in the ring. Actually, Frank put on the gloves. I stood in the corner and cheered him on, along with his fans. With God's help, the fight was won in the early rounds.
Frank's treatments had him back into remission before Christmas. HO HO HO We are so thankful. He has continued to be in treatment since that time. But that doesn't stop Frank from having a great time!
Without too much detail...... we'll get caught up.
Frank is in Little Rock. He should be there about 2-3 weeks. When the doctors feel he is ready, he'll return this fall for his transplant. He'll be able to use his stem cells that have been frozen since April 2003.
We've had many people ask us about the web site. I've been wanting to get it up and running again, but had to learn a few things first. The Blog entries are new and much easier for me to work with. I'll update often as long as he's in treatment, and especially while he's away from home. The Guest Book should be the same as it was before.
Having the support of family and friends is so special us. They can give Frank chemo, but your prayer, love and support is true medicine for our soul. And the WHOLE family is encouraged.
"I thank my God upon every rememberance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy...." Phil 1: 3
