He is AMAZING....

Mr. Sweet started his cancer treatments yesterday (3/9/17).

Chemo pills at home.
These he will take the rest of his life.

Radiation ....10:00 am Monday thru Friday
with weekends off...YAY

we were nervous about this as it is part of the "unknown" until you do it the first time.
It went smoothly.....and fast....only 20 minutes from the time
they wheel him upstairs in the Cancer Center to the time they bring him
back downstairs, where we wait for him.

He will do this for 6 weeks and then another
to see where we are.

His schedule is:
7 AM.....Anti-Nausea Pill
7:45 ....Chemo Pill
8:45....Light breakfast

cereals and fruits....

 ...with one of these thrown in every now and then....😄
we all know a Maple Glazed Donut is good for the soul.

 making records of EVERYthing...

So far, the Chemo drug isn't making him sick....
we are SO thankful for that.

And, the radiation isn't burning his head...
not even getting red yet.
The radiation tech says it most likely WON'T burn his head...
Diana at Nana Diana Takes A Break blog 
has been so helpful in telling me what we might expect...
and things that will make Mr. Sweet more comfortable...
if he SHOULD experience radiation burns,
we have an Ala Vera plant  standing by....
THANK YOU, NANA. ! xoxoxo
... he might feel TIRED after each treatment
but that hasn't happened yet, either.

Please pray with us that he breezes thru these treatments
with the greatest of ease.

...these sweet little notes from our girl, STACY LEIGH,
makes me happy...
I love you, too, Stacy.

Both our children and their families have been life-savers thru this
 tension-filled time...
He is sleeping good at night...
going out to his work shop for a couple hours most days...
eating good...
in good spirits...

 We are feeling

 A blogger friend sent the PRAYER below
to us thru Email.

Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over my blogger friend BJ's husband BILL CONKLIN. I believe in the healing power of faith, prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of BILL CONKLIN. I pray and believe that the tumor in his brain is being healed now in Jesus Mighty name!!! Your word is the truth , it states in Mark 16:18 they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. I lay my hands on BILL CONKLIN and speak life into his Brain and ask in Jesus name be HEALED of any cancer tumors. Dear Holy Spirit surround him with supernatural healing, peace and strength and give him the faith to believe that all things are possible for him. Let his miraculous healing begin. In Jesus Name,Amen. Thank you God !!! (((HUGS)))  



  1. Oh so good to read this update dear bj and Mr. Sweet. Continued prayers for smooth sailing ahead with the treatments. May God cover you all with his peace and mercy and joy in the midst!

  2. Thank you, BJ, for the update. God is good.

  3. Thank you so much for the update on Mr Sweet. I pray for you both every night and God is good and will see Bill through this illness. You take care BJ and be strong.

    Hugs to you dear friend.

  4. Praying for you all in the name of Jesus. Blessings,


  5. So glad everything is going well. My dad, at 90, had parotid cancer (it was on the side of his face) and had to have 6 weeks of radiation 5 days a week. The duration was 10 min. of radiation each treatment. He started to feel tired the 6th week and, on his last day, he asked to skip and the Dr. said yes. He did not suffer radiation burn or even a sore throat. He did have to stop smoking and drinking because, after 6 weeks, the pipe and brandy did not taste good but he could still enjoy all his favorite foods. He died from a major stroke at 93.....nothing related to cancer. So be confident that your hubby will make a full recovery! Patty Mc

  6. Glad to hear such positive things from you dear bj - wishing and hoping all will go well for dear Mr. Sweet. Tell him we are pulling for him every day.
    Hugs to you both - Mary

  7. Forgot to add the most important sister and I are Christians and lifted my dad up in prayer asking for a healing and to help him stop drinking. Thank God he recovered and had to stop smoking and drinking. Patty Mc

  8. Thanks for the up date on Bill. My prayers will continue for you both. Have a blessed evening and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  20. Oh BJ, what a wonderful report. Prayers for sure are being sent and fingers are crossed that the treatments are one 'sweet' experience (at least as sweet as possible). And hugs to you. As I said, it can be tough being strong for others, so be sure to take care of yourself as well. Get two of those donuts and enjoy them together! xxxx Jackie (PS.

  23. Dear sweet BJ,
    I have been and will continue to pray for your Mr. Sweet. It's a blessing to know that he is responding well to his treatments. Nana Diana is such a good soul and she has also shown so much support and care for me and Jeff. Blogging friends are the best. I know that you will give him the best care possible and remember to take care of yourself too.
    Love and hugs,

  26. So good to hear you are both doing well. Will continue to pray for a miraculous healing.

  27. BJ - Such good news. Still praying for a quick recovery and complete destruction of the tumor. Keeping positive people around makes such a difference. John had 45 radiation treatments and never got sick. He got a little tired at the end but we were really blessed that it didn't affect him more. Keep your chin up and your faith strong. Am praying for you both several times daily.


  28. I am thinking of you and Mr. Sweet so much Bj and I wish you both lots of love and hugs. You are both very much in my prayers.

  29. BJ, I see the calendar appointment books , bottles of pills. It is good to keep a daily journal on all of Mr. Sweet's treatments and dr. visits. You are all in my prayers. Hugs to the family and you and your sweetie. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  30. I am praying for you both! We are on a journey too,
    as Mike has been in the hospital since Jan.25 th. It is a long journey and we must trust God and ask for strength.

  31. It was so encouraging to read this post today BJ. I pray Bill will be healed and given a strength that only God can give to go through these treatments. God bless you both as you deal with all this. Hugs. Pam

  32. I am so glad that things are going well. Still keeping Bill and you in my thoughts and prayers.

    God bless.

  33. All the best to you and your family during this trying time. I just heard about this situation, and I have no doubt you will be a tower of strength for your sweet husband and family. I am glad he is tolerating the treatment well -- that's half the battle.

  34. So happy to see your update on Bill. I was just hoping and praying that everything was going well. I will continue to pray for you, Bill and all your supportive family. Remember to take care of yourself too. Hugs to both.

You both do!) to move forward in hope, love and healing. Please know that my prayers keep coming as I've followed your posts and I know they are joined with others to wrap you both in a healing blanket full of love.

  54. Amen. That's a perfect prayer.

    Hang in there friend. So many people are thinking of you.

  55. My silence doesn't mean I haven't been praying! You and your hubby are in my prayers often. I know you are both being held close in the arms of the Father. I'm always catching up with blog posts, it seems, these days. I believe God can still use our prayers and our words to encourage even thought the post is 'old'. Sending hugs and many, many words of prayer for you two and your precious family.

I love my blogging friends and most of all my family but these spam prone people are so rude and selfish have made my blogging not nearly as much fun..
