Uneventful days continue

Hello all, Things continue to be pretty uneventful here. Glenn has gotten used to doing his dialysis. Tomorrow we go to the (dialysis) clinic for a check up and we're hoping he will be trained for the night time dialysis. He is feeling pretty good over all. His weight has stayed pretty much level at a low point, but he looks like he has  a little more muscle than he did two weeks ago. He was happy that he was able to go to church two Sundays in a row. This past Sunday he even wore regular dress pants, with the shirt tucked in and a belt on! That's the first time in many months that he's been able to do that comfortably. We are still two and a half weeks away from his appt in G'ville when we will find out if he will have to start on chemo again. We actually miss that "community"  and seeing everyone there. I've heard people say that they become like family; well I'm here to attest to that. We might just make an appt to have his labs done just to make sure everything is ok, (and to see everyone ;-)  ). His "port" that is used for IV access is supposed to be flushed at least every two or three weeks anyway. We won't let anyone here touch it since our experiences in the ER and hospital stay. They don't know what to do with it and it requires certain sterile care because it is a direct access to a major artery and infection in it would be a serious thing.
So, anyway, that's about all there is to report.  A much welcomed boring period for us.
