Hi David - working where I work I know too well what C-diff can do and you are so correct when you say it is the side sickeness you get that will take you faster than the cancer. It can take healthy people as well. Continue to take your meds and do all you can to get your strength back up. Don't answer the door yet if the bony finger comes knocking.

Dear David, I will stop right now to pray for you and your wife. It gets so hard to be sick all the time. I know thru my husband that it can be discouraging to the sprit. But know that God is in charge and cancer or complications will not be able to take you until the appointed time! You are such an inspiration to so many people and I kind of feel like I know you-thru your writings. Please give the new drug all you have and let the prayers of all your fellow warriors lift you up. You have blessed us all with your courage.
