Ups and Downs...

We had a good day followed by a difficult one. Mike started another round of chemo last night and didn't fare so well. We have spent the day today trying to be calm and relaxed and have a new plan for tonight. Hopefully a new cocktail of anti nausea drugs and a new time of administering the chemo will make all the difference. What a difference a day can make!


  1. Nancy & Mike,
    We all wish for more UP DAYS than down ones. It was so good to read about Monday's "ups" and hopefully Wednesday will be an UP DAY. All of you wonderful caregivers are so special. As Nancy has said, "you will all be blessed." We love all of you so much. This has truly been a long tough journey for the Ellis team but what strength and courage you have, and this includes your kids (our incredible grandkids) as well as great grandkids. We continue to send our many prayers as well as much love. J&B

  2. Nancy & Mike,
    Hang tough, the ups and downs are far from over! Each new day will add much new love and devotion for the two of you towards one another and our Father in Heaven. You may feel some days as if you are the only ones on this joureny, we are all with you in thought and prayer. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you...I truly wish I could make this all go away but since I can't I am certainly there for you whenever you need me.

    love and hugs,

  3. Mike and Nancy!
    We're hoping and praying for an UP day today!
    Love, Mike, Sue and Rudy
