Two days ago they removed and closed the trak. Other than the O2 tube in his nose he is completely breathing on his own. The doc's are getting him to stand up on his legs and walk just a couple of steps to build up his strength. The doc's also removed the feeding tube that went to his large intestine and are putting food straight to his stomach. They are trying to give him some light food by mouth but he has been throwing that back up for some reason. Maybe because they cut back on his anti nausea meds. One of the side effects of chemo is nausea. There is still no change in the tumor itself, But it has not grown any larger either. The chemo is keeping it in check. He still needs three more rounds of chemotherapy before they can consider surgery to remove the kidney that the tumor is attached to. They are still talking about letting him go home in a couple of months but time will tell. This morning we talked over Skype and he seems to be in good spirits as he was sitting in his chair. His neck is sore because of the closing but other than that he seems happy. He loves it when I can show him my chickens running around. Im looking very forward to the day that I can bring him here in Florida so we can play again.

No truer words spoken John. Will, this is certainly encouraging news. I had a grandmother who had a kidney removed and she lived a full normal life running on just one.

Here is a short vid of James learning how to get a drink at the park. We were playing with the bucket and water and he wanted a drink. this was taken last summer.I find it amazing how fast things can change in life.

That is encouraging news!
Linda asks me almost every day if there is news about him, and sometimes looks here even before I do! Thank you, Will C, for the update.
We send wishes and prayers his way (and yours) every day.
Wayne and Linda Sheldon

Will, thank you for reminding us how we need to cherish each day and take full advantage of our daily "ticket" to life.

May James make a full recovery. Blessings to you all.
