Well, here's an update from the Williams front. Tye is NOT doing good. He is just one big ball of tension and worry, total anxiety-ridden insomniac. In the past week he has probably slept a total of about 12 hours. not kidding.
He has Part 3 National Boards this weekend and Part 4 next month. Normally he would spend about a month doing nothing but studying for one Part but these happen to fall right in the middle of the term with only a few weeks in between them. His only option would be to put them off until November but that would cost an additional $1,000 and we would probably have to stay in St. Louis so we obviously want to avoid that unless absolutely necessary.
We might have to stay in St. Louis an extra Trimester anyway, depending on if he can keep his grades in the passing zone, but in one class that's not looking very likely. So he is trying to keep up with classes, clinic and studying for boards all at the same time, not to mention being worried about what is going on with his dad.
After 8 months of chemo and radiation, Tye's dad finished his FINAL round of radiation on Thursday and was SO excited to be on the road to recovery. That excitement was extremely short-lived as on Sunday night he had a seizure. When they took him in they found more cancer, this time in his brain. More appointments and more tests are scheduled but the outlook is not good.
Please keep Tye in your prayers and if you happen to have loads of extra anti-depressants and sleep medication lying around he could use that too.
