Tomorrow Tim will have the routine CT on his chest, abdomen and pelvic areas. The brain MRI won't be until March. The surgery and skin graft on his chest is all healed up. He has a crater in his chest, but, praise the Lord, no more bleeding and bandaging morning and night!
Unfortunately, he has a lump on his left leg right above the knee that has been growing. And today he found another old lump on his right bicep just above the bend of his arm, has begun to grow again. So, we are sure the treatment of meds #6 and 7 are diminishing in effectiveness. There are no more melanoma medicines available, or trials that he can get into. So, the only thing to do is go back on a previous medicine that did not work so his body can forget that it is resistant to the current treatment. In the meantime, the melanoma will grow like wild fire until the doctor thinks it is time to try the current treatment again. The effectiveness lasted longer this second time around than the first. Probably between 10-11 months.
So, if the Lord brings Tim to your remembrance tomorrow, please pray about the CT scan and pray for a melanoma medicine that the Lord will allow to cure Tim completely! Thank you in advance!!
OK, here's some photos you've been missing, I'm sure! :D There are a couple of "bonus" videos, too.

|Today day was so pretty as we did our thrifting in High Point. But, by the time we were finished, the wind had picked up and the cold front began to move in! The temperature dropped quickly from the high of 65 that I saw!|
