Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing on behalf of my loving husband, Rod Baston. He is 57 years old, my best friend, the provider, and is always looking out for me. He loves the outdoors â€“ camping, fishing, hunting, smelling the pines and is where he is most at ease with life. When he can’t get outdoors, he enjoys playing in Dart Tournaments. He is a great husband and loves his family â€“ which includes his son, Phil, and two stepsons, Kyle and Adam. We have 5 grandkids and one on the way.

Today rod gets two different chemo drugs. So far no real side effects ; this morning he did break out in hives from a pill used to help his kidneys. With each chemo he gets drugs to help with nausea, organs, antiviral, antibiotic, etc. He is not getting a lot of rest just as he gets comfortable, someone always come in – either a bag on IV is empty, more vitals, food, weigh him. He is trying to restnow while I am writing this. The nurses say next week will be tough from the side effects. Thank you foll your support.

Rod is doing ok. He got through the Port surgery pretty well. His neck was pretty sore. Monday night he got 2 units of blood.
Tuesday was the start of chemo – only 30 minutes. He hasn’t felt any side effects yet. He is still extremely weak and anemic.
Wednesday is another 30 minutes of chemo. He is getting another blood transfusion now.

Hi, Rod and I knew each other years ago in archery. He probably won't remember me but he was always a good friend and I looked forward to seeing him. I hope things worked out well.

“Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.” Rod, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers!
