Arlene Has Good News!

Arlene says.
Early yesterday afternoon the doctor came in my room and asked if I wanted to go home. I said sure.
He asked me if I felt like I could handle it and I said yea. Well, I still had some medicine to take, so I did finally get to leave about 6:45 pm. That was a very long day.
Apparently I was so extremely dehydrated that he told us that if I had passed out, he wasn't sure if they could have "brought me back" from the other "side".
Thank God the doctor saw me sitting in the waiting room.
I was fed this huge amount of food every day. I couldn't taste it or feel it but I guess in the end I could tell a huge difference. I have a great appetite again and I feel like talking and I'm not sleeping nearly as much as I had been. I am usually a person to sleep 6-8 hours a night, but 6 is usually ok with me.
I was sleeping 12-13 hours a night and still very tired. I did take a 2 1/2 hour nap today, but that's a lot less than what I was doing.
I had a largest bag of fluids every day that I have ever seen as well, so I am totally hydrated. Thank you Lord. You know what is kind of scary to me though...how easily I could have died and yet feel so good now. Wow!
Yesterday Barry asked Dr. Momin about how long could he expect someone to live with liver cancer and he shot Barry a glance and said this is not liver cancer. It is colon cancer and it has metastasized to the liver and the lungs. Dr. Momin said in most cases one or two months. She is way passed that.
He did tell Barry to pay particular attention to me regarding how I looked on Thursday when he saw me compared to how I look now.
Dr. said last night your wife told me that she now has the sparkle back in her eyes. She does.
I have an appointment for 8:00 am. Tuesday, July 3 for the PET Scan. I will then see Dr. Momin at 1:15 on Thursday, July 5th for the results. Please keep this in prayer.
I have lost all of my hair now, but even that doesn't bother me. I am alive and well and can't wait to get out there to serve the Lord like I am used to.
Thank you so very, very much for your concern and prayer! Will blog more later. Love you all!!
