Waiting, Waiting, Waiting...

If anything describes what is happening right now it is waiting.  Since we learned that the tumor is back in two places and started new medications, we are waiting.  We are waiting for the next MRI.  Dennis will have the MRI on August 20 and we will meet with the doctor on August 21 to discuss the results.  It is so hard not know if this medication is halting the growth of the tumors.  And so we wait.
Dennis has blood work each week to monitor the new medication. So far, it has been good.  We are thankful for that. 
Dennis has been feeling ok lately.  He is doing ok with the fatigue.  I think to a large degree, we are getting much better at managing it.  We are much better with planning and knowing what events will tire him out and when he will need a nap or a break.  
Thank you for your on-going prayers and support.  We know God is the source of our strength.
We recently had some family pictures taken.  Here are a few of our favorites.
