care-giving update

When Ken was diagnosed with "advanced lung cancer" last January, he was given "2 weeks to 2 months" to live.  Praise God for miracles.  No, he isn't cured--nowhere close to it.  He weighs less than 100 lbs (6' tall), and is in pain and suffers nausea.  But his spirits remain pretty good, considering.  He loves company, and gets lots of it.  He doesn't have enough energy to work on his book, and that grieves him.  I certainly understand that grief, and wish there were some way I could help him with that.  But, here it is six months after the devastating news of his illness, and he's still with us.  I celebrate every day that we have this blessing.
