The Long Weekend

Posted by Lucille

This has been a long, long weekend. Not only is Steve extraordinarily nauseated, he's also in excruciating pain. Thankfully, Adam was here from Thursday night until this afternoon at 3:00. His common-sense approach to life and his compassionate heart make everything seem better.

Steve's pain hits him like a sledge hammer in the center of his sternum. If we press our index fingers parallel to his spine at T3, he feels some relief. We've talked with the oncologist's office several times today. Each time, they've given us a little more information about steps toward relief. Now, we're counting down the hours when we'll return to Allison Cancer Center for hydration and removal of the pump. We're already celebrating the idea of no chemo for three weeks!

Troop 175, Steve's hair is thinning by the minute. Hope you have something left to shave on Tuesday night!

We continue to be blessed with your daily cards and inboxes filled with your prayers and support. Each of you is greatly appreciated.


  1. Steve, Lucille and family,

    Please know that Niki and I, and our boys, are pulling for you and praying daily. If there is anything I can do for either of you, please do not hesitate to ask. That includes at home, at hospital, at Troop 175, you name it.

    God bless...

  2. Hang in there, Stevie Boy. You looked much better than I expected you to on Sunday. The Estes commune is doing the dance of you getting well. Love to all of you, Ginny Estes
