Good morning

Mark is still having trouble keeping anything down, even down to us metering a couple of ice cubes every 20-30 minutes. His body isn't working like he wants it to, so he can't play video games because his coordination is all off, not to mention he is having trouble with his eyes doing their own thing and he can't look up. I think he was bemused by the novelty of this at first. He has also had bouts of dizziness. Of these symptoms, he said "So I guess this is what it must be like to be drunk.". Haha, I told him his assessment was probably pretty accurate. He fails to see the merit in why people would get drunk on purpose. Several hours in, the novelty is wearing off and his frustration is growing, hope it starts to clear up soon.


  1. Our prayers and wishes are with you, We love you.

  7. Hi, Billingtons. I have a friend who had a brain tumor removed a few years ago. She was living in Camas but she might be in Hawaii right now. Anyway, if Mark or you would like to talk to someone who has been through a similar experience, I can put her in touch with you. Let me know.

  8. Mark - you don't know me, but I'm thinking about you and praying for you. Keep your chin up (or whatever kids say these days...).
