As many of you know, Rod was diagnosed with esophagial cancer in April.  While he was waiting to start his chemo treatments, he was having severe neck pain.  At that time, they discovered he had a compression fracture in his neck due to bone cancer. 

He has started chemo and will continue chemo every 21 days.  The duration is still unknown.  He is also doing radiation focussing on his neck every weekday for 3 weeks.   As of today he will have 11 more radiation treatments, and his next round of chemo is May 16th.

He will be seeing an orthopedic spine specialist on May 8th to stabilize & monitor his neck.

We as the family would like to thank everyone for your continued support and all of your loving cards, meals, and prayers.  I will continue to update this when new information is available.
