Saturday July 19th


It's been a hard week, Im sorry i havent had the strength to keep the blog up to date, i am hoping that i will be at home soon and back on track. Thanks everyone for all your support


Sky is still in the hospital, looks to be here until at least monday. We are hoping that he will be out then, but the doctor wants him to be eating solid foods without felling sick to his stomach. The early prognosis is that the first cycle of chemotherapy is doing its job as the oncologist has said she feels the tumor has gotten a little smaller. We are encouraged by the news and hope that the next cycle will bring better news with a CT scan of the tumor hopefully showing signs of more shrinkage. Not much else to say, he wishes he could see everyone who is coming to visit, but he is on nuetropenic precautions and his white blood cells are still low and he is very susceptible to infection with his immune system this low. a kind and encouraging word on the blog will be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone again, you find out how amazing people can be during times like these.
We love you all.

So happy to hear that it looks like the chemo is doing what it should be. Kick that cancers ass Sky, if anyone can do it, it is you. I wish I could see your face right now and hug you. Try to enjoy the rest of your hospital stay, I know it sucks, but you can make anything enjoyable. I believe it was you who had me laughing after having my ass kicked. I am continuing to pray that the next round of chemo does what it needs and more good news will come.
Thinking of you all the time, love you, keep your head up. You can do this.

Its also nice to hear that you will be comming home soon to your own bed and get to have more people visit you. Stay strong and keep up the fight to battle this tumor Sky we all know how strong of a person you are and we pray every day and know you will see better days once the chemo runs its course you are in all our hearts and we all love you Sky.

Hey! I'm Heather, one of Chelsea's co-workers. I just wanted to send my best wishes and say that I hope you recover fully from this. This must be alot to go through so I wanted to send a blog link that has some REALLY great information about Cancer and other ailments too. She is a nurse that left modern medicine to research natural healing and has alot to say that should inspire and surprise you. Just go to her cancer labels and she has all sorts of links as well. Please take a look. My prayers are with you, your friends and family!

Hello sweetie. I may not comment every day but I AM keeping up with your posts and the posts of your family and friends. And most certainly, you are always in my thoughts and prayers.

I am very pleased to hear some good news has gone your way. Keep fighting, baby. As long as you keep fighting, you cannot lose. ♥

Hey sky,
sorry I haven't had a chance to do this for a couple of days, I've been busy wtih the kids and family. I am so glad to hear the good news! I hope things stay on track for you and the shrinkage continues... I am still hoping to make it on the 27. That day is also Tami's grandma's b-day and our church is having a social that is being put on by one of the elders, but the time frame for all this looks good to still make it down to Napa to see you. Did I tell you that we are living in San Jose? Funny thing is we live off of Berryessa from 680...
Tell Trevor, Aaron, Elliot, and your sis I said hi.

Alex, Tami, Ashley, & Austin
