A Note from Dennis

This is Dennis.  Good morning and I am writing to say I am better each day. I know Ellen was busy with the communication and wanted everyone to know how I was doing. I'm still very tired and need more sleep, but we have everything to help get me better each day. It's very nice to be home and to have my first Father's Day yesterday.

I'm so thankful to everyone who has helped me and Ellen these many days. I know this was a hard time for her this past week with new decisions and I wasn't there to help too much. I don't know how to say thank you to so many people, from the doctor who discovered this so quickly, to the great team at UW Hospitals who did the surgery so quickly and are giving me the best care now.

Thanks to everyone at our church and families who have joined us so quickly to taking care of things we needed this week, so many wonderful friends at Amfam remembering us and helping with important information we needed, our good friends from China who keep us in their hearts and Ellen's sister who has stepped in and taken care of Brooke. Thanks for everyone helping Ellen with many things this week way more than I can know. I'm so thankful that I am able to be home getting better each morning. I'm really in God's hands watching what he has planned for me and ready to learn about the next set of treatments. He's put so many blessings in place ahead to prepare us for where we are today and I know things will be better soon.

Thank you to all of you who have been upholding us in prayer.
