Update on My Hubby

Paul is doing well with is treatments. He had a tough first week but is slowly bouncing back. He has 3 more chemo treatments and is finished with radiation which he had to his head and lower back. No more lower back pain and the Dr is hopeful the radiation will eradicate the brain lesions. One more spot on the lung that they are hoping to shrink with the chemo and then eradicate with radiation.
They haven't seen it anywhere else so that's a good thing.
So once he is off the steroids he will feel more normal again. Those steroids have some crappy side effects but are necessary. He also received immune therapy drugs in the chemo IV which is has been successful in the experimental stages. That is a pretty new thing they do now. and another drug that stimulate the bone marrow all to search out and destroy cancer cells.
So far we are doing ok and the other good thing is that his treatments are only 20 minutes away as we live very close to the North Shore Technology Center .
Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes . Please continue to wish us luck as we continue down this unfamiliar territory..

The Root Of The Problem

Children raised in fatherless homes, especially black children,
are far more likely than children raised in two parent homes :
to engage in criminal behavior and thus, have contact with police.
Therefore, when they father a child with a woman to whom they are not married - or at least living with - they are contributing to the problem against which these football players are taking a knee.
If you look at many of these players' records on out-of-wedlock children, you find that they are contributing significantly to the problem against which they are protesting.
For example, Antonio Cromartie has 12 children by 9 different women. Apparently the NFL had to shell out $500,000 before he could even play football for them.
Travis Henry has 11 children by 10 women, Willis McGahee has 9 children by 8 women,
Derrick Thomas has 7 children by 5 different women, Bennie Blades has 6 children by 6 women,
Ray Lewis has 6 children by 4 women and Marshall Faulk has 6 children by 3 women.
Before these guys take a knee they should take a good look in the mirror.
It appears that their problem is not the knee.
