Saturday Night Music: Martina McBride





Update from Lynda Scheer


Ron continues, after a minor setback over the past few days, to make good progress. Says independence is his goal and is making strides in that direction. We notice each day some forward movement in self-suffiency, which we note and celebrate. Today he went to the kitchen and fixed himself a cup of coffee. Naps are growing shorter and less frequent, and he's started writing every day in a new journal. Also catching up on email and with his blogging buddies. We are looking forward to some good physical therapy to help him regain strength lost during hospital stay and residual weakness from the tumor. Will see oncologist next Weds to discuss treatment. On the phone she mentioned chemo and low-level radiation. This doctor's last name is Kong, and she says yes, it's true, people can't resist calling her Queen. Weather has improved, so patio time is upon us. We are still enjoying having Anne around, and eating her fabulous cooking and laughing at each other's jokes. Thanks to everyone for all the kind words and encouragement--much appreciated!

With a doctor named Queen Kong, how can you go wrong! We're hoping for the best for Ron.
