Had a marvelous day with Dr. Mike & Fran yesterday. They were able to stay for most of the afternoon and Mike answered many of the questions I had about my treatment and offered some good advise. He even changed my dressing for me (chemo port site). He is such a treasure in my life and has blossomed into such a devoted husband and father. I'd like to think that Cheryl and I had something to do with his falling in love with Fran again. Their unity today is inspiring! Mike & I explored a lot of music while they lived here --- I, introducing him to new classical, he, giving me an appreciation for good jazz. And we both love to read. So what does he bring me? ---- a new iPod nano with 120 classical CD's loaded! Bless you Michael! Thank you.
While I'm on thank you mode, I'd like to say how blessed I am to have our mailbox jammed every day with well wishes. As I say, I know prayer works and I appreciate you all.
Went to 8 am mass today out at St. Joe's. Very nice, small crowd so less germs for me. Looking forward to the boys and the grands this afternoon.
Time for a nap ---- more later.


  1. Keep it up Tom! Good to hear. So happy you have Dr. I there. I know that means so much to you and Cheryl. Enjoy the family. Sending prayers.

  2. Hey Tom,

    Saw Steve Royce today. We have to go see him in March and order some golf equipment from him at Miles of Golf!

    God's blessings,

  3. Dearest Cheryl and Tom,
    We have thought about you each and every day. And we'll certainly be praying that round 2 chemo. will eliminate all things harmful in you, and that you will not experience negative side effects. How pleased we are that your stamina has been so good, and that you have been able to do so many activities. We hope you got some needed rest this weekend. Although we STILL had more snow this weekend!....the hopefulness of spring is 'just around the corner'. We have bulbs coming up in our yard, and the birds are singing their spring songs. Our God is a God of Hope! Please do let us know if we can do ANYTHING at all for you two.
    We love each of you,
    Barry and Leslie
