This humble composition reminds me that there is much beauty that can be found in small details. Simple. Often overlooked. But present in the here and now, nonetheless.
I deeply appreciate all of you who have provided comfort and prayers during this season of our lives. Those dear friends who take the time to converse with me and/or leave sweet comments demonstrate true grace in action. God bless you!
Here is an update about Mr. Jim. His oncologist has been out of the office, so he saw another physician in the group yesterday. The cancer antigen blood test result has increased since the last visit. However, there are no further metastasized areas per the latest CAT scan. (Ah, a silver lining.) Mr. Jim had a paracentesis procedure this afternoon and is feeling better. A radiology team removed 4.2 liters of fluid (a little over 10 pounds) from his abdomen. More fluid will be drained in a couple of weeks. He will meet with his oncologist next Tuesday and discuss whether chemotherapy will resume, and if so, what regimen.
Please continue to keep him in your prayers. Thank you!
