Blizzards, Christmas and Updates

Last Thursday when Dennis was supposed to go in for his treatment at the hospital, we were in the midst of a major blizzard.  At one point I considered driving him in since I was home from work but then thought it was not the best idea.  Instead, one of our friends accepted the challenge to give it try and he and Dennis headed to the hospital.  They made it there and back safely.

Christmas was good. We enjoyed celebrating Brooke's first Christmas. Dennis was able to enjoy time with both of our families as well as our own family Christmas.  It was two busy days but with a nap here and there, he was able to participate at both family celebrations on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Dennis will have an MRI in two weeks.  He has no symptoms to suspect that there is tumor regrowth but the only way you know for sure is when they do an MRI.  Keep this in your prayers and that we will not be too stressed by the anticipation of this test.  When he was in for one of his treatments recently, he was told that the other people on the drug trial he is doing are all doing well.  This means a lot to us coming from someone who sees people with this type of cancer on a routine basis.  

As we close out 2012, we want to say thank you for all of the ways you have reached out to us this year.  We think of you often and marvel at the gift of love and friendship you are in our lives.  Thank you.
