Back from Hawaii

The flight home was not too enjoyable. We spent 3 days in the Honolulu airport on standby trying to get a flight to Dallas, Texas. We didn't even have a change of clothes. Our luggage went out on December 31. The airport was busy and flights were all overbooked. The airline agents were not helpful in Honolulu. On our designated flight there were 50 people on standby. We kept rolling over from flight to flight. There were about 8 flights a day, from 8am to 11pm. One man was in the airport for 6 days another for 4 days before they got flights out. We were there 3 days and had to take a flight to Chicago to get out of Honolulu. That was quite a bit out of the way to get home to the Corpus Christi, Texas area. Agents in Chicago and Dallas were more understanding and helpful knowing we had to get Katie her cancer treatments which should have been done on Monday. We got home on Tuesday January 3rd about 12 noon, which was 4 days late.

We learned a lot of stuff about fighting cancer nutritionally and detoxing the body, and will continue to use what we learned at home. We are also continuing with the intravenous Vit C treatments.

Katie's hair is growing back and is almost a half inch long now. She continues in public school. She got all A's and just one B in keyboarding. Her joints still suffer from the effects of the chemo. She was disappointed about the B. We are very proud of her. Katie is very energetic and is feeling good.

Thank you for your prayers, emails, and concerns. With good nutritional support, the IV Vit C and your prayers I believe we can beat this cancer.
