I have been overwhelmed by the support we've received over the last few days.

Enough money has been raised to house Ken for ELEVEN days.  That is awesome.

He's still fighting hard - today his chemotherapy was Vincristine - a drug that Ken reacts to and ends up in a great deal of pain, so he had to be sedated during the bulk of the day.  The unfortunate side effect of Vincristine is neuropathy - numbness and lack of sensation.  Ken unfortunately developed neuropathy in his fingers and hands, a deadly side effect for someone trained as a computer technician.  We were unable to determine whether the neuropathy he suffered was permanent or not - his lymphoma came back too quickly.

Ken has remained incredibly optimistic, and the support he's received has kept his spirits high.  He's very much looking forward to coming home to his family and friends.
