Good Things are Happening

Steve got his 2nd Chemo a week ago on Friday. He has tolerated the treatment very well.

Our favorite Dr. told us that Steve's symptoms will improve as the lesions shrink, but that the progress would be slow. So far, Steve has been experiencing less intense headaches AND his left hand is not as numb in the morning when he wakes up. The numbness returns within an hour, but we feel hopeful that something good is happening.

My brother Ken has come to visit for a week. He has come at a great time.

Our children have gone the extra mile. Bret had taken most of the responsibility of staying with Steve daily while I went to work this last week. Sarah and Valerie have been busy with end-of-the-school-year schedules last week and this coming week. After this week, Sarah, Valerie and Bret will work together to be with Steve, but this week was a busy time for everyone - that is when brother Ken came to the rescue.

We appreciate all your prayers on our behalf - we have angels (heavenly and earthly) all around us.
