Thomas has been able to go to the neighborhood pool and watch our 3 yr. old grandson swim, well stand around with a water gun actually.

A thrilling moment came when Thomas gave Thomas Michael a ride around the block on his wheelchair. That was so sweet to witness!

All is going well except for the pressure in Thomas' ears. The doctor checked it out and it is an oddity as to why he feels this.

Hope all is well if anyone reads this.

today i got thomas in his wheelchair and he motored over 4 streets and we surprised tia when we rang the doorbell. she cried and cried for joy. of course the moment we started out it began to rain and three hours later when we started home it down poured.
thomas had a very good day.


the hospice nurse discovered why thomas' pain level was not decreasing when she asked me what the dosage was for the pain med he is on. that is when i gasped and said i was giving thomas 1 long term pill a.m. and l p.m. when in fact he should have been receiving 3 and 3 instead of 1 and 1. OOPS! to err is human, to be forgiven is divine. thomas is already beginning to feel better.
have had to do my homeopathic treatments of warm salt water gargle, nose spray, and alchohal/peroxide drops in his ears for sinus congestion and sore throat and tylenal every six hours.

thomas has experienced elevated pain in the left scapula area. this has been the hot spot for the cancer since diagnosed. we suspect the fact he was using trapeze to pull himself up may be the culprit. that shoulder is just too compromised. he will not use that device anymore. he has not been able to be in the wheelchair because of this. the pain level seems to be diminishing ever so slightly.
does anybody up there in woodridge miss us yet?
love to all, PAL
