I guess I will eventually get back to blogging.  I was in bed almost 3 weeks with the flu and pneumonia.
I missed Christmas and New Years.  Hopefully that will be all for awhile.   Silas is still going to the Oncologist  once a week for blood work and to see the doctor.  The doctor is well pleased with his progress.  He has 2 more months to go with the medicine.  Then he will be put on a maintenance dose.
He will still have to go every few months to get blood work.

Can you imagine any medicine costing $7.000.00 a month?  Who of us could pay that?  Well, that is what his medicine cost.  But the Lord worked it out that he gets it free.  We are so thankful for that.

I started this post about three weeks ago.  I don't know where time goes.  Seems we are on the road a lot going to the doctor.  Silas has had several set backs.  Pain, losing strength in his legs, having to stay in bed a lot which is really a trial to him.  We found out the symptoms were caused from the cancer medicine.  He was taken off it until it gets completely out of his body.  He will then be given a lower dose.  Today the doctor said  he was well pleased with his progress.  He had to take a drip to help strengthen his bones. He will go back in two weeks.

Through all of this he is always upbeat.  The Lord has taught us so much.  We really feel blessed when we look around and see others far worse.  The Lord is good in the bad times as much as the good times.  We sure appreciate the good times now.  We have learned not to take life for granted but to take one day at the time.

 God bless each of you,           Aliene

Hi Aliene, Thanks for stopping by. I know I don't get around to blogs like I used to. I often depend on FB to keep in touch. Still, it's nice to read posts rather than short fb updates. I'm praying for you and Silas...I can't believe how expensive the meds are...sure am glad they were free!

Hi Aliene,
I've not been around on the KJV much but just checked it out again and saw your post on the blog list. Just wanted to say praying for you all.
God Bless.
