Hello Everyone,

Stanford's condition is holding steady.  He had an enjoyable 
Christmas day with family and was awake for quite awhile during the 
day, hence the need for more sleep today.  In spite of our efforts 
to turn his schedule around he is still perking up around 11:00 PM 
for two or three hours.  Last night he played mostly with his new 
Nintendo Wii game "Elebets" that he got for Christmas.

Dr. O'Shea called this morning to check up on how Stanford has been 
doing.  Stanford's next appointment is this Thursday, Dec 28th, at 
10:45 AM.  Last night at 11:00 PM when Stanford perked up and was 
eating his warmed up dinner he said, "I sure hope this gemcitabine 
starts working soon."  His appetite is small because his stomach is 
small.  He is patiently waiting for things to start turning around.

I put some pictures from recent visits on the 
http://StanfordLarsen.org website, also some pictures from the TCC 
company Christmas party held on the 15th.  

We hope and pray that Stanford's body will hold together in a 
recoverable way so that he can have enough cycles of gemcitabine to 
get his condition turned around.  

Thanks for your support, encouragement, and prayers.
