Dan Said –

First an update on Dan’s condition – We are thankful that Dan slept well last night, and that he was able to eat everything I prepared for him today. He is eating small amounts, but he is eating.  OK, so he still weighs enough, but lost a lot of muscle mass. If they give him more chemo Monday, all his food will probably taste like metal again.  

This evening, around 9 p.m., it was pleasant outside.  Dan was able to walk for 5 minutes before his energy was gone.  But that is the first “walk” he has taken since he became so ill.  Thank you for continuing to pray that God will heal Dan, that we will have the strength to endure this trial, and pray that food will taste good to Dan.  — Anne

NOW A WORD FROM DAN –  

The week after the treatments is very challenging.  If you look for my  
hair, most of it is gone!!!  But, thanks be to God, He has seen me  
through again.  I’ve told several friends here that it is a little  
like being seasick.  They say when you are seasick, the first day or  
two you are afraid you are going to die.  The days after that you are  
afraid you won’t die!!!

Seriously,  I want to give you a word of encouragement.  Suffering  
this kind of illness is never enjoyable, but God stands by me and by  
all of us during such times.  The reason I am a Christian is the same  
reason Paul said he was an intentional follower of Christ.  He said:   
“I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him  
from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so  
that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the  
dead!” (Philippians 3).  — Dan
