A Good Day

Mike responded to the new pain treatment very well. For the first time in many weeks, he said the headache was MUCH better!!!! We were happy that his blood tests were good and he is healthy for another round of chemo.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal last evening which was prepared by Rudy's "foster mother." It was so good to talk to her about Rudy and know he is extremely happy. (Maybe too happy :) Mike and I have listened endlessly to music that was sent from dear friends who are far, far away. They are the musicians on the CD and hearing their music helps us feel their love for us. We continue to have special angels spend the night with us and give us lots of TLC.

Today is indeed a good day...

This was sent to me by a friend..."Throughout scripture we encounter the need for us to remember that the Lord has His own timetable for unfolding things; it will not always accord with our schedules or our wants. When, in our extremities, we urgently call for a divine response, there may be instead a divine delay. This is not because God, at the moment, is inattentive or loves us less than perfectly. Rather, it is because we are being asked to endure more for the welfare of our souls. The blessed meek understand that God loves them even when they may not be able to explain the meaning of what is happening to them or around them."


  1. So glad to know that he is getting some relief from the pain! We think about you guys often! You're still in our prayers!

  2. Thanks for the update...glad you were able to share some positive news for now. The verse at the end is priceless. There are indeed angels everywhere, I am sure each day brings another one into your life and many that have been with you for years!

  3. Dear Mike and Nancy,
    Barb said it so well---yes, the scripture is priceless. And we all stand together in knowing that His timing is right. A friend of mine often tells me that God knows what he is doing. We all need that assurance. We're so glad that Mike handled the new chemo quite well. As you said earlier, "Mike is an incredible man."
    We all thoroughly bvelieve that and also that Nancy is an incredible woman with three incredible kids!!
    We continue to send our love and prayers.
    Your Mom and Dad (aka Jane & Bill)
