Thomas is currently enduring 3 infections in his system. He is still unable to move from the waist down due to the thyroid cancer that spread to his spine, yet he has sensation in his legs. He did move his knees (movement generated from the hips) and a toe. He experiences severe spasms quite frequently each day. We are still planning to relocate to Charlotte, NC to be near Tia and Thomas Michael. The oncologist said to go for it if that is our desire. We would like to move by the beginning of May. Pray for Nathan as he must finish college at Slippery Rock and we need our home to sell. Thomas requires 24 hour a day care and I have the privilege to meet that need along with home health care 3 times a week. Thomas never complains and remains positive due to the grace of our Lord that has been given.


  1. Tom & Patty,
    You are in our prayers. If you need help packing please let us know. We love you so much! Hugs to all!

  2. Tom, Patty, and family;
    Please know that I am praying for you during this time. If you need any help with moving or if you need any dinners brought to you I will be more than happy to help.

  3. Tom & Patty,

    We are praying for you daily. Peace to your hearts.
