The Great news is NO MORE CHEMO. I am slowly recovering from the effects of the chemo. The last chemo was very hard as each chemo was harder than the one before. I had a total of 4 treatments.

My taste and smell are not recovering. I have a horrible chemical taste in my mouth all the time and everything tastes bad. People tell us that the taste will come back in a matter of weeks. None to seem for me. In the meantime I am still getting nourishment through the feeding tube.

I had an appointment with a local surgeon last Wednesday (7/1). He will confer with my oncologist and the surgeon at the MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. I have an appointment with the medical oncologist next Wednesday. We will find out more about when and where at that time. We are still expecting the surgery to be done in Houston sometime in early August.

We are planning to go to 2 family reunions the 3rd and 4th weekends in July. We expect to be gone July 15 thru July 27 0r 28. We will be in the Black Hills in South Dakota for the 1st one and in Eastern Colorado for the 2nd reunion. Sally's Mom's family and my Mom's family.

I will enter the news from next Wednesday's doctor appointment in a more timely manner.
