    Thinking of you. My dad will be home late tonite or sometime tomorrow to stay at his home for at least awhile. He only has the use of a few fingers on each hand and his arms are getting much weaker. He still is able to eat on his own and gained 71bs. He has to eat really slow though to prevent joking. He uses a bi-pap just at night at it helps him out alot. Take care, Kim

    Hi Joyce,
    Our youngest son had a wonderful visit with my dad in Dallas. My dad's progression seems to be at a standstill lately. He uses a bi-pap just at night while he's sleeping and he sleeps through most nights. It has really helped his energy level during the day. My dad is hoping to come home for a couple of months at least for a visit. He has a family friend who is self-employed and has agreed to be his caregiver whenever he comes home. He has caregiver experience too. I took a week off immediately after Christmas and we will be spending time with my dad either in Texas or here. Dad is waiting to see where he's going to be depending on if he gets accepted for a clinical trial or not. He was supposed to find out last week but now they said it will be another 10 days. He is getting impatient waiting. We are praying he gets in. Take care and write anytime. Kim

    Hi Joyce,
    Glad to read that your move went well. How is Dean doing lately? My dad is about the same. He's been going to alot of baseball and volleyball games lately of his grandkids who live in Dallas. He also loves to go to the movies. He saw the latest Clint Eastwood movie and said it was really good. My youngest son Eric (He's 8) and my aunt (Dad's sister) are going to leave next week Oct. 4 -0ct 9th to fly to Dallas to visit my dad. It will be my son's first airplane ride. He's so excited to be going to see grandpa. Take care and drop a line when you have time. Hugs, Kim
