Bobby J Update

Okay...all those prayers must be working, because Bobby J has already crossed one hurdle. Or vaulted one hurdle. Or got over...oh, I don't know. He got past something big. Here it is:

Bobby was originally admitted into the hospital with jaundice. When they discovered that it was cancer, the big fear was that the jaundice was from impending liver failure. The alternative possibility was that it was from a blockage, which could be held open by a stint and would be much less serious. Then, chemo would be able to start immediately.

Well, apparently it was just a blockage because Bobby begins his chemo tomorrow. I didn't get much out of my sister, having called her at 11:17 PM her time and woken her from probably the first sleep she's had in three days (oh nice going, Mel!), but she promised to call tomorrow.

All for now. Keep those hands together or circling the rosary or sacrificing goats or whatever it is you do to pray--at this point we're not picky, and it's working.

Oh man! Sacrifice a goat, I'm gonna do that one. Shouldn't be to hard to find one here in PA either. Farmer Joe might be a little upset to step out into his yard and find me naked with a knife in my teeth and a heart in my hands dancing in circles over his daughters pet but... hey.. he'll get over it.

Aw Ghionny. I thought you already had!!! We don't have goats here in California so I'll just have to sacrifice a breast implant or something.

Glad to hear it! Just for the record no animals were harmed during my prayer time.
