As part of the annual Hunter's Hope telethon and auction on WGR, Jill Kelly was a guest on "The Howard Simon Show" this morning and gave an update on her husband's recovery.
"We have quite a road ahead of us. In fact, we have an important doctor's appointment this afternoon. But that road, obviously though, has bumps in it. It's a road that we're thankful he's heading down. It's a road of healing, and it's one day at a time, one minute at a time and ultimately one prayer at a time.
"He's doing OK. It's hard. This is a hard time right now for him, and he's just kind of getting accustomed to what has taken place, and not only that, there's a lot of changes that have to continue to happen and results that we're still waiting on. All that kind of stuff. People that are listening that understand anything about cancer, you know that it is a road. It's not a momentary or daily thing. It's simply a road that you travel down. We're very hopeful, and Jim is incredibly tough.
"He was a very, very good patient in the hospital and got excellent care at ECMC. But, yeah, it's one day at a time and thank you for asking."
Jill Kelly later tweeted:
JK update: Long road ahead but doctors are very pleased thus far. Still waiting to get the bone pathology report back. Trusting God.— Jill Kelly (@HJKforever) June 12, 2013
