Happy Saturday

Lisa is doing well. She has been getting around pretty good and has been eating great. She has some leg pain, but it is manageable. A dose of Benadryl keeps her sleeping through the night.

She seems pretty happy and definitely rules the household and keeps us laughing with her crazy antics.

We are gearing up for chemo this week which will be done outpatient M-F for about 8 hours a day. I know there are many of you who have offered to come to the hospital and visit. This would be nice for Lisa (and us!) and might make the time go by a little quicker. If you are interested in visiting during chemo this week, please sign-up here so that we don't have too many people at the same time; it can get crowded. Also, it is a kid-friendly place and it can be pretty hectic with chemo kids running around with with their poles. You might want to bring earplugs and shin guards! Other children can visit so long as they are healthy.

I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. I'm certain these prayers are giving us much strength and are helping us. The whole cancer thing is not as traumatic anymore (a bit unbelievable I know), it has just become our daily life. We adjust and do what we got to do...but we couldn't do it without each and every one of you. So again THANK YOU. We are very blessed with many loving, caring family and friends. I've come to realize reading email, posts and cards, that not only are our family and friends praying for us, but their family and friends as well. How awesome! I'm very grateful. I'm would love to know how many states we have represented. I know we've got FL, AL, MN and CA states covered...but where else? I ask that each of you reading this blog take a minute to sign our "guest book" so everyone can see who is out there and where they are.

Thanks...keep smiling, keep reading and keep praying!
