Today was an emotional day. As you can see comparing the pictures today to the ones 2 weeks ago at Disneyland, a lot has changed. It was so nice to all be together and I am thankful for the time we can all express our love for one another. We are all praying for the radiation to work, but we also are realizing it may not. It is going to be hard for Tracey and Andrew to go back to Arizona on Tuesday, but it was good to spend time with them, and I'm so glad they were able to come. Tracey and Andrew came with me to my nanny's house to tell her that my dad was in the hospital and things were more serious than we knew before. She had a really difficult time hearing the news, and it was very sad to watch. The most touching part of the day though was at the end of the night when our whole family was together back at the hospital room and my mom was holding my dad's hand to comfort him. My dad will have his third radiation treatment tomorrow and will continue to have them for the rest of the week. His next chemotherapy will be on Thursday. David's next chemotherapy will be on Tuesday, so this week will be a busy one. I am thankful that God has allowed David to feel really well this past week. David has said that he feels like he doesn't really have cancer this week. Thank-you for praying about his shots because he didn't have bone pain at all this time around. The Lord is really being gracious and not giving us more than we can handle at one time. I know that He is answering all our your prayers on our behalf, and we are thankful for you.
