Subject: [MOL] update on Joey


> Hi all, it's been a long time since Joey and I have been here!  Until

advice

14th,

> hospice nurse who visits twice a week, and makes every effort to keep him

> IV, and made a valiant effort to endure very aggressive treatments,
including
> 5 months of chemo weekly and radiation 5 days a week.  He dreaded my
attempts

man

nurse

are

although
> there is not always a face, we have been blessed with enough Guardian
angels,

has
> enriched our spiritual growth.  Your miracles gave us the hope and
strength

> blessed with first hand knowledge, that kindness in man kind is strong and
> growing.  That someone we will never meet face to face can impact
anothers,
> ours, lives so richly.  For now, I need to believe, that in his mind, my
> brother is fishing with people he loves!
