Might be coming home at end of week?

The physical therapist and occupational therapist examined Tony today, and both were very pleased with his recovery. He is still sore in the chest area because the lining around the lung is irritated, and will be for a couple of weeks.

The oncologist still wants to try and get Tony back on the original plan of an anti-vascular medicine and a chemo medicine. It might be able to start in about 10 days, but he needs to talk to some other doctors before he decides.

There appears to be a good chance he will be discharged on Friday and allowed to fly home on Saturday. That is not a promise, but that is what the doctors are thinking at the moment.

As is often the case, we have something to look forward to, but little is certain or decided.


  1. It is oh-so important to have something to look forward to...though logistics may change, things do get decided and some things will gradually become more certain. Praying for plans to come together, knowing your family is ready to be together at home, looking forward to that blessing. The Devlins

  2. AHH! I'm so excited! I will totally see you soon Tony! I will pray all goes well! I can't wait to see you and hang out with you again! I'm praying for you! -Brian

  3. I am counting down! I hope all goes well so that Tony can hurry up Home for the Holidays. We all miss him, and I am sure all of his family misses him even more.

  4. I am praying all goes well and he can fly home. I can't wait to see Tony and be with him during his recovery. I hope all goes well!!
