The Latest Update

Lowell has gone downhill a lot in the last month. He has lost a huge amount of weight, as he hasn’t been able to eat hardly at all. We found out is due to a partial blockage in his small intestine. They believe the blockage is due to the cancer tumors growing and pushing against his intestines, so they started Lowell on chemotherapy again today. The bad news is that the doctor isn’t sure Lowell is strong enough right now to withstand chemotherapy, but we have run out of options. Also, the chemotherapy will take a couple of weeks to start working, so Lowell will have to try and fight through this. He spent most of the last week in the hospital with IV fluids while they debated surgery, but since they believe it is cancer-related they won’t operate. We are hoping for the best. If you would like additional information our oldest daughter has been documenting a lot of this on her blog. Her blog is: annban10.blogspot.com

Thank you for your continued prayers and love.
