Chemo Update

Loved Ones,

Ray had a great day today, took a walk and was outside in the yard which was wonderful for him. He is still eating so well. We've been studying cancer fighting foods so gave him a great salmon and yam dinner which he ate while watching the White Sox with a special buddy, Mike Morgan.
We are excitedly preparing for tomorrow's chemo at 1:30. Ray gets one infusion at the clinic of a hard and fast hitting chemo. His second chemo is a longer duration -- he'll do that for 48 hours from home.
We are praying for the chemo to have a miraculous impact -- eliminating the cancer altogether. We are prepared for this healing to take time, but it is this end result that we are praying for.
With Lucy still sick, the girls have gone to Nana and Grandad's where they happily waved goodbye to their mother while painting the sidewalk with paint from our neighborhood friends. As a friend said tonight, the girls have angels on their shoulders. I cannot express how true this is. Like us, the girls are being cared for from above.
With the girls gone, it ended up being wonderful to de-germ the whole house in preparation for our return after Ray's chemo tomorrow. We are ready!
We thank you all so much for your continued prayers. There is nothing that could possibly mean more.

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

not alone and not afraid --
