Oh man, I don't want to do this blog post, but here goes. Most of you who read my blog regularly know Bob, but if you don't, he's probably the closest thing I have to a grandchild right now. And for those of you who don't know him--this is Bob--
Back in February I put up this blog post about him. He was having trouble with his leg which actually started sometime in January. Well, to refresh everyone's memory there was a scare that he may have had cancer in his leg---but 99.9%--no cancer is what the doctor had told them. And...guess what? A couple of weeks later he had another flare-up in his leg and after more tests--yes it was cancer. And unfortunately a very serious form of cancer that attacks the blood vessels, and usually starts in an organ. Bob was lucky in the fact that it went to his leg.
He still his leg though. For the last 3 months they've been doing a procedure on it that brings the cancer up to the surface--his leg has had a cast/bandage on it all of these months. It's working...they think----they have to wait until the leg heals and then they can do more tests.
But...in the meantime, Bob just finished 6 weeks of chemotherapy--but he was a trooper--he went through it well, all things considered. If the cancer hasn't cleared up in his leg, they'll have to amputate it and another round of chemo. It never ends! The prognosis for this type of cancer is not very good. Please everyone, he needs your prayers!
I really really didn't want to blog about this, but I know how everyone enjoys Bob--and he really needs your support right now.
Okay. how about some more "happy" news. Leo is suffering and I'm feeling very guilty right now. I'm calling the Dr.'s next week to see exactly what they do for a dying turtle. I honestly don't know how long it takes for a turtle to let go, but if it's like anything else that they do, probably very very slowly. I'm very very sad right now.
