I just received this email: “Dear Cara, Just a quick “heads-up”… Your unlimited toll-free phone time expires today, February 27 at 5:03 PM EST. After that, callers will not be able to record additional messages.” If anyone has not recorded a message, today is the last day. Thanks, Cara

Dad’s Memorial

We have finalized many of the details of Dad’s memorial and are now in a position that we can share the plan. The memorial will begin at 2pm on Sunday at Settegast-Kopf Funeral home (15015 Southwest Freeway) with a reception, where there will be coffee and snacks. Instead of a wake or viewing, we have […]

Welcome to Heaven, Daddy.

Earlier this afternoon around 3:30, my father passed from this life to the next. He passed peacefully in the arms of my mother at home in our house. We thank you for all of your prayers during this difficult time. We will post more about the details of the celebration of dad’s life as we […]

The Goodbye Party

The last few days have been a wonderful opportunity for Dad to see how many people love and care about him. Our house has been packed with people each night who have come to celebrate his life. We gave Dad his last dose of Dexamethasone on Friday and we were blessed that he was able to keep […]

The Beginning of the End.

Based on the latest blood tests, it appears that Dad’s multiple myeloma has progressed through the stem cell transplant. We knew going into the stem cell transplant that his disease was so high risk that the stem cell may not work.  Unfortunately, it appears that that is the case. On Monday we were told that […]

Welcome Home Daddy

At Dad’s last appointment on Thursday, they said his counts were good. So Dad got to go home. He has no appointments until Monday so we are taking it easy and having a great time. Thanks for all your prayers. We will update if anything else happens. No news is good news!

We are in the Hotel

We are in the hotel! Mom and Dad have lots of appointments, but we are quite happy to be out of the hospital.

SURPRISE! We are headed out of the Hospital!

They did Dad’s labs yesterday and his white blood cells had gone up to 4.6. That’s normal! And a pretty big jump from the 0.1 he was on 12/12. So they told us that we could leave today. Yay! This exceeded our expectations and we are very happy.  If everything goes well,  we will check […]
