Danny is getting better & better everyday. His appetite has picked up and he is able to eat almost anything he wants. Sometimes thicker foods are not very attractive but for the most part his diet is normal.
His hair has started to grow back. It is very light colored and oh so fuzzy! His head looks like a peach... lol. It has taken a long time to grow that small bit of fuzz.
Danny is doing great with his medicines. He has not been using any of the IV drugs and has been able to space out some of the medicines he takes by mouth. We are so very excited that he is doing so much better. He is still not 100% but he is well on his way.
Monday morning at 8:00 Danny will be having a PET scan. I ask that each of you pray for Danny at this time. The doctor has ordered this test earlier than he had planned because the pain has returned in Danny's chest. This pain is the same pain that started this whole journey so naturally we are very concerned. We are truly hoping the test comes back with a good report. However, I believe I have already began to prepare myself for the news he will need additional treatment. The thought of facing that storm again is a bit overwhelming. But, we will see.... we should hear something at our next dr visit which is Wednesday next week.
I had the great opportunity of going out of town this weekend with some of my long time girlfriends to the Women of Faith conference in Greensboro. This is an annual event for us and is a super fun time. We have been friends for 18 years and some have moved away so we enjoy coming together to catch up. This years conference was great & it seemed that the messages were just for me. I received great encouragement to stay strong and continue to fight the fight! Thanks ladies for everything!
Danny stayed home with the children and was in charge of their social schedules for the weekend. Summer had a scrimmage softball tournament on Saturday so he was thrilled to be back at the ball field. Of course, Daniel was doing his own thing with his friends. It was good for Danny to get to spend some alone time with the kids and good for me to spend some alone time away from the kids. :)
We are so thankful to have each and every one of you praying for us and coming along side us to help us during this time in our lives. Thanks so much for showing your support in so many ways. We have been showered with cards, emails, calls, and sacrificial gifts. Your support has been priceless! You have touched our hearts & have changed our lives.
A special thank you to everyone that came out last weekend to support our family at the pancake breakfast. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend because Summer had the flu but Danny had a great time. It really meant so much to him to see everyone. You have no idea how much your presence meant to Danny. Seeing everyone was better for his healing than any medicine could ever be. Your sacrificial gifts will be a great help to our family. Thank you to Andy's for hosting the breakfast and donating the food & labor to make the breakfast possible. David, Beverley & John - THANK YOU so much! I know you worked so very hard on behalf of our family to ensure such a successful event... We love you!
We don't really know what lies ahead but we do know that the Lord is faithful and that He hears our prayers. He comforts our hearts and calms our fears!
