Bill is tired today. It seems that the 3rd day of treatment has been the hardest on him. He woke up feeling really tired. His friend Dan came over and it made him feel better. He didn't feel hungry today and said he felt to tired to eat. He finally did eat a little and felt better.

We went this evening and the pump was removed. He doesn't like wearing it. It's hard to sleep with it connected. He has to be careful the kids (especially Kaity) doesn't pull it out. Plus he can't shower with it.

I am going to write his dinner menu like he would but I know I am going to fail miserably. I can't beat a pro. So here is my futile attempt. The grassiest Mrs. Grass extra noodles soup with the crispiest/flakiest saltines you can fine. Beverage of choice strawberry kiwi all natural juice. Oh yeah I can't forget the chocolaty cupcake with whipped frosting with green, yellow, and white sprinkles.


  1. Hey Bill, you don't know me, we've never met but I have been praying for you. Our church has been praying for you. I am the Pastor at Harvest Church in Lowell, IN and we heard about the cancer and have been praying. I know that as you go through treatments it is going to be hard and draining but I also know that God is there waiting to support you if you simply ask Him. Be encouraged Bill because people do care about you, yes even people you've never met.

    Pastor Brian

  2. Bill
    You totally missed your calling. You should have been a writer. You make me laugh. Perhaps try writing a book.
    Take care, love you all.

  3. Thank you Pastor Brian for praying for Bill. He is an awesome guy, and I'm not just saying that because I'm his sister (well...).


  4. Ya, Bill, write a book. The I could make fun of you the way you've teased me in the past...


    Hope you're feeling better.

  5. HEY Bill, I'm a member of Harvest Church. Going through an illness can be very tough,I'm sure you are learning new things about yourself.Some days you'll amaze yourself at what you're capable of. You must be very tough,I know at some point even the vanity issues are quite discouraging.Always remember,God never gives you more than you can handle.He will be with you in the lowest moments.Remember that God made you,so He can restore you to the exact condition He will want you to be.That should cover the vanity uncertainties.My wife and I will be praying for you,we will also be lifting you up before God at our prayer meetings.God Bless You Bill!
