Well, I just had two of the most amazing days with my husband! Colin had two whole days off of his chemo treatments and he was in the greatest mood! (well, who wouldn't be if they a bit of rest from the worst process of their life?!) Anyways......Colin has been the happiest i've seen him in about 10 weeks, laughing and joking and smiling! It's good that we've had some good days before the worst makes him so much more stronger for the tough days ahead! We took the boys up to see him today and we really had the most amazing time hangin' out and spending some quality time together all 4 of us again! He's walking and even climbing stairs..(Keegan, too!)...every little bit of exercise helps him heal and beat this thing! I'm thankful for this gives us something to hang on too, until we get another great day to spend together! God knows what we need, and He knew that we needed some smiles through this, so I thank Him for the little blessings!
Another blessing was meeting another Burkitt Lymphoma patient, at the end of his treatment. He only has 3 weeks left of chemo until he gets to go home for good! We needed to hear that someone else with stage 4 cancer is living the other side and doing great! It meant a lot to us both and that he and his wife took the time to share their journey!
God is good, and on that note, i'm gonna get some sleep!
Luv, Melissa
oh ya, Colin found something that made him want to eat, ALOT.........Wendy's cheeseburgers! haha, he thought he'd only eat a few bites but he ended up making my brother go out and get him another one last nite, and he made me go out to get him one for lunch today! Doc says, if he finds something that he likes, get it for him, so i just hope i don't have to make any late nite runs, Calgary is a big city! (Now i know what he felt like when i was pregnant! LOL)

  1. I just can't believe you guys are going through this! Seems so unreal...
    I'm praising the Lord with you that Colin had a great couple of days... and that you got to see the light at the end of the tunnel with meeting the other patient.
    Praying constantly for you all.
    I thought I'd include a passage from the Bible that was a great comfort to me while I was pregnant with Sam and so afraid... Be encouraged... Great is His faithfulness!
    Lamentations 3:22-25 - "The unfailing love of the Lord never ends! By His mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself 'The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him.' The Lord is wonderfully good to those who wait for Him & seek Him."
    God Bless You!
