A Spectacular Day

Today was an absolutely spectacular day.  Rebekah is bouncing back very quickly from the last chemo treatment and is, in many ways, acting very normal.  On top of that, Rebekah was REALLY happy to have guests today.  

Kelli, Jake and their daughter Kenna came to see us today.  Jake is an electrician and helped sort out some small electrical issues AND added a couple of motion lights for us which was a HUGE deal.  While that was going on Kelli and 3 year old Kenna played with the girls just about all day in the new play room.  This is was so helpful as mommy was suffering from a headache and it allowed her to get away when the noise was getting too bad.  This family was, until just before Christmas, complete strangers and then they came across Rebekah’s blog and have been in contact ever since.  They came from quite a ways away, traveling several hours to see us and help out.  How wonderful their hearts are.

On top of getting the lights installed having mommy and the girls taken care of allowed daddy to get some more finishing touches on the playroom/remodel.  We have not been able to find anyone to do some shelving work so I took it on myself.  We didn’t expect anything fancy (which was good) but over all they came out okay.  It was the first time I have ever touched a router!  I learned a lot and they are not perfect but we hope they will work.  It was really nice to be able to focus on something so completely different than everything that has been going on.

Next week Rebekah has a couple of clinic appointments to check blood work and over all status but nothing that should be too eventful – let’s hope it stays that way.

We have also received word that Gage is not doing so hot.  If you don’t mind, head on over to his page and add him to your prayers and drop his family a note to let them know that we care and you care.

Our next (and LAST) chemo hospital stay is about a week away.  Please pray the week leading up to it and the entire week of chemo stay uneventful.

So glad to hear that Rebekah had such a great day and that she bounced back from the last chemo treatment so quickly. It's also wonderful to hear that she is acting very normal and so happy to have guests. It warms my heart to think about her smiling and enjoying herself.
