    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    I haven't seen our friend Keenum post lately, so here is Randy's latest CarePage post:

    "Nov 16 - 5 PM

    Posted 36 minutes ago

    A bit of a relapse here. A lot of pain and very weak. I'm depressed as hell. Sleeping all day. Feels like the end is near."

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    Sorry about the lack of updates, school has been keeping me busy these past several days.

    Randy's been through these tough times before and pulled through, so if anyone can keep fighting back it's him. Really keep him and the family in your thoughts and prayers tonight guys.

    Yes and let's rally around him and flood his Carepages with messages.

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    Here's a fairly good update from Randy today:

    Haven't been able to use feed tube due to adapter port has worn
    out and no longer holds the male adaptor from feeder bag. Went and
    saw a gastroenterologist yesterday to fix. He didn't have any in
    his office, so I have to meet him at the outpatient clinic at the
    hospital tomorrow to get it replaced. I haven't had any feeding for
    a day and a half. No side effects from the chemo or not having
    feeding so far. Feel good. My sleeping pattern though is all
    screwed up from my relapse period though....


    I'm surprised that he hasn't eaten in nearly two days and still says he feels good. Once again he's fought his way back. This man is THE definition of a warrior.

    For all of you that shared photos when I asked, I put together a book and gave it to Randy. Thank you to all that responded. There are a lot of good times contained in that book.

    It wouldn't have been possible without the help of a bunch of people here on ClanRam.

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    Can't wait to look through it when I get there. He's in some serious pain the last week, but he's fighting through it as usual. I can only hope I could be half the man Randy is if I ever had to battle through something like this.

    Me too Josh. Randy is just an incredible, larger than life force of humanity and a shining inspiration. God Bless him.

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    Even before this battle, I always thought of Randy that way. When we visited a few weeks ago, we learned of other things that Randy has done with that big heart of his.

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    We arrived yesterday and had a great Thanksgiving dinner with Randy, his wife Becky, Laurene (Randy's mom), and Bob (Randy's friend from the Navy). Laurene is really great and I really enjoyed meeting her. Bob is also great - he drove from Minnesota to be here for Thanksgiving. We all watched "The Expendables" to verify that Sylvester Stallone still cannot act (though his brother didn't do the music for the movie). We did see the Cowgirls get beat although the evil Patriots won (Tom Brady is the anti-Christ).

    Randy is still getting around pretty well - (insert scoff at the doctor) and was ready to wrestle bears today.

    We are going to check-out the Franklin Mountains tomorrow.

    If any of you care to travel here, you can get a decent rate at the Ramada ($180 for three nights) for a suite. I think this place used to be a Candlewood Inn since it has a fridge, kitchen sink, stove, work desk, couch and chair, and king size bed.

    Re: Randy (BigRedMan) Update

    Glad to hear everything went well!

    Here is his carepages update today:

    Thanksgiving went great. Had my Mom, my Navy buddy Bob from Minnesota, and Jack and Lynne from Oklahoma here. We all had a great time and visit. Wish they didn't have to leave. Looking forward to Josh, my buddy from Bakersfield, CA coming out soon. I will post pictures soon. I have to resize them and stuff. Back to regular chemo this week (wednesday). Yuck.
