Hi David,
As always, I enjoy reading your blog. Your symptoms and ailments hit home so much as I am walking through my dads trials and tribulations. My whole family will be in Fargo for Christmas. We are excited to be together but not excited to see the state my dad is in. He is in a scary place- we pray for his strength to return so the drugs are an option. They are not right now. Kidney cancer is for the birds. I hope he enjoys seeing his 8 grandkids as much as they will enjoy seeing their 'papa'. Happy Holidays and eat when you are supposed to! heidi
