Had is radiology oncology followup for the 11 day radiation – Last night looked at all – the one under armpit on upper arm looks as if near fully open and enlarged so are the others surrounding it on th chest side… Looks as if there is a new one that is growing now on the edge of the one just finished radiation on last month and with a couple of smaller ones one the side … he said something about possible radiation treatments again – but told the radiologist no for now would see what the Opdivo/Nuikynmab & Yervoy/Ipilimumab therapy would do He goes back on Wed. the 28th will see if his regular oncologist will come out and explain more to me – he won;t but does not full understand everything either… The chemo/immunology drugs etc are effecting his memory but I do not think he want to admit it or fully recognizes it time will only tell I have firend here helping me and he called on way to Indy (via cell phone) said could not find air chuck for the compressor – he told me and the guy he did not know where it was so I bought one but the connector was missing but after we got home and told him to go find the connector he went right to it – but would not fit anyway wnt got the air chuck too and I found an extra where he got it from so i snatched it and hid it in my tool chest…. trying to understand but yet he is deterring clean-up and he does not help at all with it just sits in front of the ___ tv while I am out there busting ass with friend or laughs if so tired I drop spill my coffee all over the table… i could probably drop over out there and lay there for hours before he would even come out to look…. its beginning to get hard to try and keep the promise i made to his dad and mom and his wishes… but I am trying time will tell especially this winter not sure when house will be done but the answers will all come to a head on Dec. 24th when the promissory note comes due with basement complete I would say there is at least another 3-4 months before house will be done I was surprised he helped with the splitting of the wood but U went bought a hydraulic hand splitter and it was more like a new toy to him tho he would walk off for long periods of time, go sit in front of t v…. I know the chemo/immunology/radiation plays a toll on him but he won't tell you anything but yet he will ride 6-10 miles every day down to a country store – but he missed tonight after he got home at 4:30 Off my soapbox

Hello @reibur1951 and thanks for dropping by Connect with an update. I can hear the frustration in your post and that is certainly understandable. I hope that you are able to get some relief and help with your building project. Your words show compassion and understanding for your friend's health situation and you are to be commended for that.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

UPDATE back into radiation – his 4th this year – will be 41 days of it total Go for Verification and Pictures tomorrow had his initial consultation last week or befor – not sure days and tasks running into each other Not sure what is going on or will be going on made the trip to Indy for the labs/dr/infusion and she called me at 12:51 p.m. to cancel the 1:30 p.m. (she had just called the landline a few seconds before as firend called me to tell me he listened to the message we were not to come) and was just getting ready to turn into the Vermont Parking garage since there has been no Valet parking since mid March – gives us the half hour to trek the block up to the main entrance – answer all the Covid-19 screening Q's and trek our asses over to the Barnhill elevators and up to 2nd floor i miss the valet as it was worth the $10 if did not get a voucher ticket for it (Infusion & radiation treatments general if someone does not loose the ticket before he hands it to me)

The rebuild is on a roll picture attached kitchen cabinets will be ordered within a few days – siding is order the soffitting & trim is there on site – not made any draws on the loan as yet but coming up withing the next few days have the 64A up for sale and not sure whats going on there either – several looked on interested but he is trying to take it down below the bank appraisal for the loan – and I won't go that far – think it was $244,000 – with with that I will loose my ass with all the fees and loan payback; agent using the bank figures came up with 248 and I talked it up to 258 I said i would go lower than the later # – I had spreadsheet all made out so i went and crunched figures at all three – took off the tees etc and sent it to the agent have never heard back from him only came to get a signature to get and aerial view of the property from the Ag department – wanted a 10-year yield average again – so had to get it again this round i got quotes for every year

So with everything my temperament is on the ras edge – but i am hanging in keep repeating everything is going to be oaky and will turn out but yet scared
