January 15, 2007

We talked and emailed many of our friends over the weekend. The love, prayers and support are overwhelming. We’ll get though this with your help. Please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail. The purpose of this blog is to keep us from repeating all the details to everyone all the time. If you want, we’ll still do that so call anyway.

Well, with the help of our daughters and friends we made it though the weekend. Friday night was dinner with Doug and Chris Hammen. We’d originally planned a fancy dinner downtown (post Christmas tradition for us) but changed to a local dinner at the Italian Café and a movie at our house (Little Miss Sunshine). Saturday we had a meeting at the church and the girls brought dinner over – we laughed and tried not to cry. Good evening. Sunday morning Sarah ran half the Houston Marathon and we went down to watch her and cheer her and a lot of our friends to the finish. She set a personal best time of 2 hours and 14 minutes. Not bad for a girl who flew in from Singapore at 1:50 pm the day before.

Forgive me if I talk about things that seem mundane or ordinary. I’m not taking anything for granted from here on out.

Onward to the appointment with the oncologist this afternoon and, hopefully, some facts we can deal with.
