Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon

We got through the day.  Bob is brave..stoic, and funny under stress. He charms the nurses and even the doctor a little.
Its boring to recap really. Just know that Dr S is hitting this cancer hard.  We discovered that the "cocktail" that I have been incorrectly   calling it,  is really a mild form of chemo.. After 4 rounds of 21 days each of this chemo ...its directly on to the bone marrow transplant. Gulp. Then they let his body rest for a hundred days before they'll do something call Immune Therapy.  Whew.
We've come home with a list of side effects to look for...with our fingers crossed that not one of them materializes. The phone has been buzzing with well wishes and texts are flying..all for my good man.

Today's miracle- Bob is dealing with needles...bravely...even the one they jabbed into his soft, tender, belly.

I’ve been thinking about you guys so much. We fasted for you on Sunday. We are praying for you daily. I know God can work a miracle with Uncle Bob. I know it! Hang in there! He can do this!

Hi Jared and Carly,
Thanks so much for that. Had a great visit from your dad and mom last week..they brought in lunch and we went over a few things on the new yard. All seems good here. Meds don't have any side effects as of now, that I can additional appendages or 3rd eye yet,lol. They have made some big improvements with this type of cancer, so the experiment of turning me into a pin cushion for awhile is okay, as they have a great success rate with Myeloma now. thanks for the prayers, sure love all of you. Bob
