I am sorry for the delayed post. We have had many requests for updates to the blog. Unfortunately, the pain medications that I have been taking prevent me from using the computer for extended periods of time. Every medication that I have been taking lists severe drowsiness as a side effect. I believe, also, that taking them all together may compound their effects. The solution that we have come up with is that I will dictate the message, and Marissa will take over on the keyboard. I promise I will get an update posted soon that will catch you up on all of the details from the date of the last post to current. Please stay tuned and thank you for being patient.
We have also received many requests for information on financial donations. We have opened an account that will be receiving charitable donations for my healthcare and living expenses during my stay in Houston. We have been told by my Oncologist that we need to make arrangements to live in Houston for at least 6 weeks. After 6 weeks of treatment, I will have all of my diagnostic tests performed again to determine the effect of the first round of chemotherapy. If the treatment is considered successful, I will be evaluated to see if my treatment may be continued in Atlanta, and monitored by MD Anderson. If the treatment is unsuccessful, I will start again at square one with a lengthy stay in Houston. For those who would like to help with our financial burdens, the addresses are as follows:
First Citizens National Bank
C/O Diane Warren
104 North Monroe
Newbern, TN 38059
Please make checks payable to Bradley Dycus.
You will receive a receipt for your contributions. Please provide a return address for this.
