Dear Family and Friends,
I know that many of you have called and emailed concerning Cam’s latest condition. First of all however, we want to thank you all for your calls, visits, cards, food and I know he is in your thoughts and prayers. We apologize for not answering all calls and not being able to visit with all who come. We are trying to find the balance for Cam between what is uplifting and what is draining. This goes for his nutrition as well.
Since his incision on August 30th, he has suffered from the energy that it has taken to heal from his incision, let alone his cancer. Tomorrow his 27 staples will come out and I personally believe that this will be a small victory for him and to not have metal staples down the middle of your stomach would make anyone feel better.
On Wed of this week, Cam became violently ill and threw up and had other issues for nearly 24 yours. He was grey and was extremely dehydrated. As a family we decided he needed to get into the hospital. It was around 11 p.m. and I didn’t want him to wait through emergency so I called our surgeon/friend who operated on Cam and asked to have him admitted. It was so right for this to happen and after a blessing he started to become better and the IV gave him his needed fluid (six bags). This also prompted us obtaining “home care” that provided a portal IV that he can insert at night with a slow drip through a pick line that is in his arm continually. We have a good friend and neighbor who is a home care nurse and has been a tremendous aid in understanding how this will work and how to hook it up. Cam learned the first time and it certainly helps him wake up with both physically and mental energy.
Friday, Cam received some acupuncture from a doctor who practices alternative energy healing, who healed my torn rotator cuff without surgery and immediately after 90 mines of being worked on, Cam had an appetite (which he has not had for several days) and was thirsty and has continued to do so, even though its not very much calorically, its better than nothing. He has continued to have some vitality since that experience and even went to his new BYU ward today.
He is being diligent on trying to down fluids that will increase his pH balance to counteract the acid and working on his immune system with high doses of know essential minerals and vitamins.
We know that we are being sustained and strengthened by the many who are seeking a miracle in his behalf. Cam continues to be mentally tough in spite of his body’s condition and we are doing our best to support him without adding the weight of our emotions. We continue to believe in a God of miracles and that faith, obedience to the commandments, and righteous desires proceeds the miracle. If it be the Lord’s will we hopefully will be worthy of a miracle for a worthy young man.
Thanks again to all who are supporting us in this time of need and during a nearly unbearable trail. He hopefully will start working part time in the next couple of days. Fortunately he can do a lot of work from home through a VPN into the servers as Fishbowl.
Dave, Paula, Cam and Family
PS Cam just had his staples removed from his surgery and will now be able to start to stand up straighter.
