I'm Out

I'm out and back in the apartment. They released me yesterday afternoon. I have felt pretty bad since being out - lots of pain and nausea. There is some concern of nerve damage and I'm living with problems associated with limited functionality of several body processes. "Time is my friend" the nurse said, "many of these things will work themselves out as everything heals where they cut." Please pray these will be temporary.

I'll write more later - just wanted to thank you all for your support and let you know the good news that I was discharged. As rough as things are right now, I am deeply joyful and relieved they got the cancer and saw no more.

Hello Greg - I have been following the process here via your website and praying for you. Praise the Lord for such a good result! Send me your number via email and let's chat sometime, I can call you from Mexico City via through voiceover IP, and it's free if you call my local Dallas number (which rings on my computer here)!

PTL!! Hope you will not over-do since you have been released. You probably still need TLC. My prayers continue with you and Christine [and Judy & Jim!]

Greg, what a trooper you are.!!!I talked with your mom and know you not only have support of your wonderful families but all the many friends who have been praying for you. You are certainly an inspiration for all of us. As you know I am going through radiation now so can somewhat relate to you but I have never known a person like you to endure all what you have had to go through. It makes any of our problems seem like nothing. Love to you, christine and of course my dearest friends your parents.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you and Christine.
We hope the recovery goes quickly.
