We used to be the Four Fighting Hearts until our Daughter got married and Matt joined the family. Then we became 5 fighting hearts and now with the arrival of thier son, we are now six fighting hearts
We are 6 Fighting against Cancer. Evan has been diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer which is a rare Pancratic Cancer and has been fighting the battle since July 2008.
You are welcome to follow along as our family fights this Cancer together.
These are a few of the things I would like to do in my lifetime.
Parker Evan Jones Born April 22, 2010 at 2:09pm 7 lbs 14 oz 21 inc. long
JayDee did fantastic! After only 6 hours of labor she delivered our little baby boy with six quick contractions. Right off the bat Matt started explaining sports to his new son starting with the Utah Jazz and their standings in the playoffs. He is such a cute Daddy and JayDee is loving being a new Mommy. They are a beautiful new little family.
Friday I got my monthly shot to stop the growth of the Tumors from growing. The shot is one that is not like other shots, it is a medicine that does not dissolve so it has to be given in a large needle and sometimes it hurts for days after. This week was one of those times.
I was scheduled to go on a motorcycle ride Saturday morning with a bunch of friends but was not able to go because sitting on my backside for a long ride would be to painful. It was very frustrating because I really wanted to go. Oh well, such is life.
My next visit with my Dr. will be in a month and I think I get a CT scan at that time so we will see how the tumors look.
As most of you know, I work for Kennecott Utah Copper. Last Friday I was given the great opportunity to go to our Precious metals plant and watch as they poured Gold. It was an incredible experience, I got to see it go from liquid to a solid bar in just a few minutes and then after a quick bath in water it was cool enough to pick up. The worker picked up one bar and handed it to me. He then said "you are holding a half of million dollars in Gold in your hands"
I was stunned to say the least. It was a neat experience that not everyone gets to do. I really enjoyed it.
Last night, Evan and I got to go see Michael Bublé in concert. He is one of my favorite singers and he is so talented. It was an amazing night!!
I have never been to a concert in my entire life so that made last night even more amazing. I wish I had some pictures I could post from it but we didn't have our camera with us. The camera is way to big to lug around with us and I don't think they would have let us in with it anyway. You should have seen all the cell phone lights on as people were taking video and pictures. It was pretty funny!!
