Today, The Sun will Shine!

It's Missy here......i'm up at the hospital now, Mom came back up from the Hat this morning with Hella Striefler (THANK YOU, Hella for taking the time to drive her up!). She and Nat will be watching the 4 kids in total, while so i can be up at the hospital with my sweet Colin. Today is a good day! The things that were sent up from the Police Recruit Class, Sgt. Brandt, and the Police Association were SO much appreciated.......Colin's day was brightened by your kindness! THANK YOU FOR MAKING HIM SMILE! You have no idea how much it means to me to see his smile today!
We went for a walk and were able to enjoy some of the views from the 5th floor, here at Tom was good to see him in great spirits.
Colin is sleeping really doesn't take much for him to be totally exhausted, so we take what we can get and his rest helps him heal and fight so i'm glad he's able to find comfort in sleeping!
Even though, it really hasn't been that long that Colin has been sick and started treatment, we have prayed that God will continue to provide for our dad said it best, that when we pray for God to provide, and He does....and we are surprised by it........I never questioned God's power......but wow.....those of you who have blessed us with donations to help with our bills and extra costs throughout this process....Thank You! May God richly bless you for your generousity and have been faithful to give in our time of deepest need, and Colin and I pray God's Richest Blessings upon you all! Our LOVE and big HUGS go to each one of you!
I praise God for a good day....the sun is shining, Colin smiled for the first time in so long! I never thought a good day could come so soon into this process, but we know there are so many praying, and those prayers are sustaining us everyday. I have never felt prayers so strongly until now......we've had our nurses and Doc's tell us they are surprised at how well we have handled everything thus far.......i tell them we have an army of support behind us to lean on!

I can't say it enough.....THANK YOU! WE LOVE YOU!
we'll keep the updates coming!

  1. Hey Colin - I just want you to know that my thought and prayers are with you. My husband went through treatment 10 years ago (radical surgery and chemo - and he is here to tell his story). I can relate to what your wife is going through. You are young and strong, and I know you can beat this. Glad to hear that you had a chance to drive at EVOC! If there is anything we can do, please do not even hesitate to ask.
