Dad update 9-18-08

I'm sorry it has been a while since my last Dad update. Josh was in town for a week and my sister-in-law also came for a visit. We've got more family on the way, so we're staying pretty busy.
So Dad had a pretty rough week last week. He did 5 days of chemo pills that were a stronger dose than before. They wiped him out. He was disoriented, weak, sick to his stomach, and very tired. He fell several times and hit his head once. We now have a wheelchair at the house which has made things a bit easier.
The last few days have been a little better. He still can't get around by himself, but the sickness is gone and he's not disoriented anymore. He has absolutely no appetite, but he eats a little for us anyway. He sleeps most of the time and only gets up if he needs to.
Please keep on praying for all of us. We love you all so much!

Praying for you and sending lots of love! I'm so glad you and Josh got to have a week together--I'm sorry it was just a week.
