As we approach this blessed holiday week, our family is grateful for all the love you have shown us. Mike finished his 4 day chemo drug to help rid his body of the the HLH and combat the lymphoma. He continues to fight each day with out knowing where his levels will be. The one thing we do know is that Mike loves his family and friends. He is holding on for all of us! Mike wants to be home for his Christmas Eve birthday, he wants to be with the grandkids Christmas morning, he wants to hold Bonnie tightly, and he wants to give a big thank-you shout out, to all of his cherished friends. Right now he is extremely tired and he just wants this treatment to work so he can have more time.
Friends stop wishing about the things you want to do and make a plan to do it this coming year. Do something kind for a stranger and for goodness sake, love your family. Life is precious in every way! Through the mountains and valleys find the good in your journey, find the good in others, and find the good in yourself. If you are unsure about how to do this....just ask Mike.
