Time to Celebrate!

October 25, 2008 was the start of a two and a half year journey for Liz and her family, a journey that we have all joined through this blog, through prayer, and through our support. This weekend, we're celebrating that journey, and the end of Liz's treatment, with a time of music, stories and thanksgiving. The celebration begins at 10:45 a.m. this Sunday, April 3, 2011 at WellSpring Community Church, 7689 Bethany Road, Liberty Township, Ohio. Bring friends...wear orange...and show Liz, Randy, Christine, Cat and Jim one more time just how much we love them. Hope to see you there!

First Post Check-up

James 1:2-4
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.3  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be prefect and complete, needing nothing.

Something my family has lived and learned from for 30 months.  I hope we never forget the lessons  we have learned and that we will continue to grow in God's grace and love.

Please keep Elizabeth in your prayers.  Tomorrow is the first post treatment check-up.  She will have a long morning starting at 7:15 a.m. in the Hematology/Oncology Clinic (hem/onc), 7:45 with a new visit to the Hem/Endocrine, 8:30 back to the Hem/Onc clinic, 10:30 DXA Scan (bone density), and 11:10 Pulmonary Function Testing (breathing treatment).
She has been very busy and consumed with the OGT testing at school and has not given her visit much thought.  I hope she continues to NOT give it any thought, worrying does not do any good.
Please continue to pray for:
Finding a cure,
keeping Liz in remission,
Joel Brown and his recovery from his bone marrow and staying in remission,
For peace and strength for Critter and his parents, Stan and Michelle,
For all on A5.

Blessings and prayers,
