Monday Obituaries

Update on Austin… Monday, July 1 st… Great couple of days!! Over the weekend he was taken off dialysis, had his breathing tube removed AND came off the oxygen. Stats so good he was able to get out of ICU on Sunday afternoon and got a regular room ( yay!). No limit to the number of visitors so we don’t have to hide Blair behind the curtain LOL. He continues to respond well to the chemo. Started round 2 today. Hasn’t eaten yet since this whole ordeal started but getting his nutrients from a bag. Still has all his hair, not due to fall out for another week maybe. Fighting minor little things but other than that doing great. Will probably be here through next weekend then hopefully have a week off before round 3 starts. Thank you all so very much for all of the thoughts , prayers, goodies, posters, and inspirational words. We are truly blessed beyond comprehension. Please continue to pray as we take one day at a time.

Thanking God for this good report.
