So, as I sit typing this, we are done with round two of chemo--two out of four! So we are already halfway done with the chemo part of Sarah's treatment! To quote the nurses, Sarah is flying through her chemo. : ) So far, so good, and we are very, very thankful! Her blood cell counts will start dropping probably on Friday, and they will be down for about a week. I don't look forward to that week, but as I've been saying since day one of all of this, we will just take it one day at a time.
God continues to bless us and overwhelm us with His goodness. It's summer, it's beautiful, we have amazingly awesome kids, and we are just soaking it all in every day. : ) Summer is just the best, isn't it?? Okay, so are spring and fall. NOT winter. But at least it's pretty. While we were home for the week before Sarah's second round of chemo, our family had so much fun--we celebrated Scott and Cassandra's birthdays (totally on the fly and it was probably one of the most fun birthday parties ever,) we all went to Josh and Ben's softball games and there is nothing better than watching 6 year olds play softball. (Okay, maybe watching 4 and 5 year olds is pretty great too.) And we all went and saw Toy Story 3! LOVED IT! This week Jacob and Josh are at Camp, and Cassandra is counseling, and I am loving spending time with Ben and Sarah. Tonight we went to the park. Picture a perfect summer evening, watching Ben (6) climbing and jumping and yelling, "Watch me!" All the while Sarah is sitting on my lap as we're swinging, and she keeps saying, "Fun park! Fun park!" Does it get any better than that?
Blessings to you, everyone! Cherish every minute!!
