Dr.s appt today

Hi everyone. Michelle here. Charlie is fast asleep in the recliner. He's not feeling too great today, he is extremely tired. I just wanted to let everyone know how his appt went today. It went pretty good, or as good as can be expected. His blood pressure is still amazing. I don't know if we told you, but about a month ago he was able to come off his blood pressure meds. He had been on them for a couple years. They thought it may have been caused by the tumor, but since his surgery, his pressure has been outstanding.
Anyway, the Dr decided she was going to have him receive the medicine they gave him this week thru out chemo to try and counter act his blood levels from dropping so low again. The bad side about this is the pain will be constant instead of just the few days he experienced. Which don't get me wrong, the few days is terrible but now it will be even worse. We see the Dr again on Oct 8th.
Thanks for stopping by and reading our posts. It really makes us feel good to know you are all there praying for us. Please leave a hello when you can.
Hugs & Blessings

Thanks Michelle for the update on the dr's appointment. This blog is such a great way to keep up to date with all of the appointments and treatment. We often think of calling you too but don't want to disturb Chuck if he is sleeping/resting.

Anyway, have a good weekend and keep in touch.

Hugs and kisses to all of you in TC, from all of us here in Lindsay.

Thinking of you all of the time.

Hi Chuck ( and everyone)

Sorry it's been so long since I posted a note, but it's been a busy week. I just returned yesterday from a 3 day, 2 night camping trip with all the Grade 8's in the West Parry Sound School Board. I was there with 3 kids from my class at school. They did awesome!! Was out shopping today and bumped into Janet (can't remember her last name)who you used to work with in Parry Sound at the camera store. She was shocked to hear your news, but said to pass on her thoughts and prayers. She too has been battling cancer for the last few years, and is scheduled for surgery in a couple of weeks to remove a tumour from her back. She said you should be eating only a macrobiotic diet and that a positive attitude will get you through the worst of it. She remembers so many good times from when you worked together. She will let Tammy know as well. Not much else to report from here. Love to all from all of us.
