Isaac is doing ok, considering. We had hoped for better news after radiation and his first rounds of chemo, but no such luck. He'll have at least one more round of chemo, then probably surgery. It's not a pretty surgery, so we've been hoping he could avoid it.
All prayers, energies, well-wishes or anything else you want to send is more than welcome.
Side note: this has hit us very hard financially, as I am sure you can imagine. Although I understand medical bankruptcy is perfectly respectable, I would prefer if we could avoid it. On our home page (www.neopagan.net) we have PayPal links for donations. If that's an energy you want to sent (Robert Anton Wilson used to call cash "little green survival tickets) it would be received with deepest gratitude, also.
