Sent Russ an E-Card yesterday and he sent back a thank you with these words. Sounds encouraging!

 

Thank you for the terrific card. I can use a smile today because it has been demanding BUT the doctor is encouraged.

Maybe the good Lord will grant me a few more days,weeks,months,years?.If so I will continue to share His blessings and right up front are good friends like you. Cheers,Russ

UPDATE!!!!! :pdt12: :pdt12: :pdt12:

 

This will be brief because I am a trifle tired. They did the fourth surgical trim to my throat cancer tumor today and all went extremely well. I was home by 3:30pm. It will a day or so before I get the official report and maybe some word about laser procedures at Emory. No one is giving up at trying to keep this old codger around for a another birthday or two. Thanks for all of your prayers. I still have little or no voice but that's a small trade off . Russ Weiskircher

Friends, family and everyone: Saw the laser specialist at Emory Midtown today and learned that the throat tumor is not completely removed. I will have to have additional surgery, this time under sedation, probably happen in September. This is disappointing but at least there is no new growth so the possibility of total removal still exists. I appreciate and ask for your continued prayers, Russ Weiskircher

 

Just wrote to him this morning and sent major hugs his way!!!!

After several rounds of doctors and specialists, I am cleared for additional laser surgery on this persistent throat tumor. Tentative date is 11 Oct. Still no acceptable voice, but I am now attending voice/speech therapy. Please keep us in your prayers. Russ Weiskircher

 

Russ sure is being a trooper. Let's hope that on this next round, he is given a complete bill of health. Here's to you my friend. This cannot be easy on you.

Latest update from Russ. Our usual thoughts and prayers accompany this message-

 

Just a brief note tonight and more later. I had my laser surgery today at Emory; spent the entire day and wont have a complete report before Nov 9th. I am sore, tired, and appreciative of all your engouragement and prayers. I have no voice and am ordered to voice rest for the next week. So if you phone, please speak with Jane or reach me via e mail. Russ Weiskircher

I wrote to him yesterday and received this reply this morning. It means a lot to him to hear from all of you. He is certainly appreciative of your prayers.

 

Thanks Marion! You will never know or perhaps you will, just how important your support and prayers mean to us. My doctors tell me that there is little medical reason for me to be alive, but I am and am telerating the surgeries and meds and whatever they try. God is the answer, always was and always will be. I pray that He favors us with a good election and an end to this socialistic chaos of the past four years. Best wishes and keep in touch. Tell the forum folks that I am just not up to lengthy correspondence but I do send my sincere thanks. I feel their love. PS: Janie, despite her problems and stress over me, is holding up rather well. More later, Russ

After a very quick to Emory midtown voice clinic, and a very fast evaluation and photo session, I can report that the surgeon is very pleased with my progress. Despite pain and discomfort and fatigue and impatience, I am getting good care and wonderful support from so many of you. I ate solid food today. I am feeling a little better. Now I have six weeks before another evaluation and then maybe voice thereof. Thanks to all of you and particularly those that visit and called and comforted Jane. Russ Weiskircher
