We spent 4th of July week at the lake at Grandma's house. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins! Swimming, boating, bike riding, chasing jack rabbits and deer, and all the imaginary games we (parents) may never know about... It's a kid's ultimate playground. The feel of camping, but the benefits of staying at a house :) Not that I don't love camping, but I think our tent days aren't going to work out this year. At least not until late summer... Our Pinecrest trip was busted because Adam's LP appointment landed on Wednesday of the week we planned to be gone. Bummer! Bad timing, but what are you going to do?
So, Adam goes in this Wednesday for his monthly appointment and (once every three months) lumbar puncture. This procedure usually makes him feel real nauseous and tired, so we will probably be laying low for a couple days. Starting the day after these appointments he takes his Decadron steriod, so he'll start to eat a lot, puff up, and need naps :) But it's only for a week out of the month, and as I have probably mentioned before, SO much easier than going in every week or two! We are so thankful there has been no trace of the cancer cells since he was officially in remission (almost) a year ago, and while we still have 24 months to go, we see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your
hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Phil 4:6-7
