The blessings continue!

We continue to be blessed with visitors and helpers and WONDERFUL food!  Our emotions have been mostly high throughout our journey; however, it's only natural that spirits will dip when the odds are against us.  Your friendship and support is our lifeline.

We continue to be hopeful and have been exploring options for treatment.  MD Anderson called today requesting more documentation and we are taking that as a VERY GOOD sign.

Albert's doctor's visit today was a bit scary.  His blood pressure continues to be well off the charts and continues to concern the original endocrinologist on the case.  So she has ordered an extensive lab work up and pulled 9 vials of blood for tests.

We have been living day-to-day with each new surprise we've encountered.  It was 'funny' to watch the doctor's expressions (or attempts at concealing her expressions) as we updated her on what has happened over the last TWO weeks!

It's a lot!  It's crazy!  Especially when you say it out loud, in clinical terms!

Albert is AAAAAHHHHH-mazing!!
