Thanks so much for keeping up in the loop with the Kevin's progress. You can count on everyone here to keep him in prayer as he goes to the upcoming appointments. I ask our heaven Father to bless Kevin from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. May Kevin know that God is good even in the midst of trials and tribulations. Tell him to praise God at all times! God is good all the time!!! Keep me posted!!! Tell Kevin LaShawnda said to keep his head up and don't look back because the BEST is yet to come! Woot! Woot!
Linda- Thank you for your kind thoughts. I think you missed this update on the previous page-from Kevin's mom:
I just heard from my friend Susie- with a "good news" Kevin update! Thank you to all of you that have included him in your prayers!
Dear Family and Friends,
Well...as of Mon. November 29th...NO MORE CHEMO TREATMENTS!! Yep, Kevin is done, Wed. December 1st he was disconnected from the pump for the last time! In Kevin's words posted on facebook:
"LET ME TELL YOU I AM OVERCOME WITH JOY! AND I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEiR KIND AND SUPPORTIVE WORDS AND PRAYERS...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! HALF WAY HOME WITH THIS JOURNEY!"
Again, thank you all for your prayers and support! It has meant so much to Kevin and our family. We know that the prayers on his behalf have been what has got him through the really tough times during the 12 chemo treatments. God is so GOOD! He never fails us! He has a CT scan scheduled for next Thurs. the 9th to see how everything is doing after the chemo treatments and we will see the Oncologist Mon. the 13th to get the go ahead to schedule the reversal surgery in Jan. I would say the journey is 75% "behind" him!" It's been a long year, yet it has gone by so quickly since his diagnosis Dec. 17, 2009. I am so proud of how Kevin has handled it all, he has remained positive, upbeat and giving his all at his job! He has many funny stories about the whole process! And they are FUNNY, some gross, but nevertheless FUNNY!!
Love to all,
