August 20, 2011 -- Not much new to report about my cancer, except that I am in a clinical trial, trying some new medicines. I also have a nasty infection of something, so I have twice a day infusions of vancomycin for that. I have had to increase my pain medication. The biggest change that I can see is that I am amazingly fatigued all the time. One little walk around the house is enough to take away all my energy. My family is wonderfully good to me. The mercies of God are new every morning. Thanks all of you for your prayers and well-wishes.
