Thanks so much for the uplifting comments. They help me make through the day.
I saw my Oncologist on Tuesday and he has released me from chemo because none of it is working. So I'll just check in once a month with them unless something happens.
My prayer has been of late to take me off chemo and the LORD has done that. I'm very happy and look forward to my future. Keep praying that I get to feeling better the longer I'm off of chemo. Its been two years on December 8th...WOWOW....I can't believe it. GOD IS GOOD!
I don't really remember what feeling descent is like....soon though, very soon.
Let me know how I can help you guys....Most of my time is spent taking care of me, aches and pains etc.
God bless

WOW! I woke up this morning with new vigor and resolve. Thanks to the Grace of GOD and your prayers and good vibes. Thank You!
I really can't express how great it feels to have a good day or several again. My sleeping in bed is improving....I'm up to about 40 minutes at a time before the pain says get up but it's coming around. I think I'll actually do some art this coming week for the first time in weeks. God is good.
I still don't see my oncologist til the 17th and don't have any idea what the game plan is. My neurapathy is improving along with my appetite. I have to stop losing weight. I pray for you all and thanks for your comments. Everyone is busy with their own lives and I respect that. Let me know if I can be of any help to you guys and thanks again for bearing with me through these tough weeks. It will get better....just a slight hiccup in the highway of life.
God bless

In His Grace

Wow! I am so sorry that I haven't been able to write to you guys. Life has become busy for me.
After getting a rest from chemo it decided to go into other side effects and I've been dealing with those. GOD IS GOOD! and I am a high maintenance ****** , whatever these days. But things are looking up.
I am now seeing a chiropractor, 3 times a week, for my hips and lower back. They are all screwed up from surgery, way back when, and have just gotten to a very painful spot.
I am getting some relief now but still have long ways to go. Maybe I told you, but I have not slept in a bed in over 3 months due to back pain. The idea of cuddling up in a bed and sleeping is something I pray for soon. Lucky I have a bed because some don't even have that.
Anyway.....truly, all is well but I am so busy with me I have no time for art yet nor my blogging....hang in there.
Your comments are food to my soul. GOD bless each of you and your plans.
Let me know what's happening out there.

My Prayer Answered

Thank you my friends for prayers and good vibe sending my way. I'm just getting up and going again after quite a few weeks of Yo-Yo land.
I was in to see my doctor yesterday, as usual. He knew all the problems I've been having plus not being able to walk. They had my medicine ready to go and he just looked at me and shook his head. You are looking...???? so I am going to take you off chemo. YEA!!!!!!! My prayer answered .....He thinks my body needs a break, because it's been so long without one.
He said don't come back for a month ....I want to see if your body will build itself back some. I'm on a Z pak for some cold I picked up last week. Anyway God is GOOD!
A whole month off of chemo.....I can't wait. Thanks for praying and keep it up.
I'm sorry I haven't written much but I haven't been feeling well.
Thanks and GOD BLESS

This time it's my feet. They are so sore on the bottoms I can't hardly walk.....I look like someone trying to walk across hot coals..hahaha. But soon this will pass as does all's just a waiting game.
Not doing much art yet for taking care of me....I told you I'm high maintenance. hahaha.
God bless

God's Cathedral

Glad to be back where I can say hello again on this computer. Yes I have been in the woods, held up in a two room cabin for a few days....I call this God's Cathedral. It's so beautiful with all the birds, deer, bear and yes even ferral pigs, some people know them by the name razorbacks.
Starting out I almost didn't make it to the cabin because of side effects but we did. The 'WE' of course is my faithful wife Chery. Then day by day and drawing by drawing I came back much better than when I left. I just had to get in tune with my spirit and my God's Spirit. Now that I've revitalized all the old juices I may be able to go a few more miles, God willing.
I pray all is well with you........thanks for thinking of me while gone and please let me hear from you.

Changing colors

Another visit today with my doctor. He is cutting back on the chemo pills to see if it will straighten me out some. GOD only knows how much I would love to get past this. Anyway all else looks good and I praise the LORD for that. Just wanted you to know. I'll be out of email for a few days again but this time to go and paint where the trees are turning colors and I may also turn colors..hhaha. Praying all is well with you guys.
