Hi John Peggy and David Still nothing to report from Knoxville we had snow and really cold here after the snow about 8 inches which is rare here and temps around 0 for a few days after the snow so it was on the ground about a week and a half. Happy birthday John and grandson too really liked your fanclub picture I worry about Cheri and always pray for the best for her. Peggy hope you are well recovered from your hip replacement and Laila is well too. David and Donna hope you all are well too. The cats and me are good. Later Tim

Thanks everybody!  At first I couldn't imagine how anybody knew it was my birthday, but then I realized I mentioned it yesterday.  Tooth is all done and we did have dinner.

I don't know what to think about Cheri.  At least for now, things don't look as bleak as they did, but we still don't really know.  I'm more hopeful but don't honestly know whether I have reason to be.

Tim, that was really some nasty weather.  We got the cold and snow too but nowhere near as much snow as you did.  Just a few inches.

I have absolutely no birthday plans.  I kind of expect it to be a normal day and that's not altogether a bad thing.  Thanks again, everybody!  John

Happy Birthday! 

I can imagine how the ups and down related to Cheri and the doctors would file on the emotions something awful. Sorry!

Thanks David.  We went out to birthday dinner the day before and yesterday Cheri bought us a big cake.  Otherwise it was a normal day, which was just fine with me.  (Except I lost my chess game last night which I was not happy about.)

Between different hospitals, different doctors, conflicting and sometimes contradictory information, yeah, it can be maddening.  That's not to mention one of her doctors retiring and another moving away, and none of them ever seem to communicate.  She got a PET scan a few days ago and just got a call wanting her to schedule one.  How do they not know she just had one?  And how do they not know the results?

At this point we don't know what's going on for sure, and sometimes I know more than the doctors!  The colon cancer is apparently gone, although they won't consider it truly gone for 5 years because that kind usually comes back, so they want to keep an eye on it.  The cancer on her kidney has alternately been described as small and massive, then small again.  It was alternately described as being non-cancerous then cancerous.  At this point they describe it as small and if it's growing at all, it's so slow they're not worried about it.  Now there may, or may not be a cancer on her adrenal gland.  We don't know.  If there is, that's really bad news because cancer there is usually lethal within a few years.  I hope not!  John
