Lookin' like Christmas!

Wow, i can't believe we're in our second week home already! We've been up to all sorts of things, all together the four of us, of course. We can't seem to venture too far from each other these days, but we're enjoying it! We put up our Christmas Tree last nite, what a great time, a little exhausting trying to keep Keegan from taking the entire tree down several times, and then having to 'redecorate' from where the kids thought all the decorations should go! We got lots of great pictures though! We're in the middle of wrapping all our Christmas gifts now, since we have to send stuff out to BC and get everything ready for us here, just because we won't have any other time before our last round of treatment and transplant! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! WE'RE ALMOST READY FOR TRANSPLANT!
I've been printing off our blog entries and all the comments, and it occured to me, yet again, what a great support system we have around us! You all who are reading this are absoutely amazing! It still just amazes me, that you would even take the time to read this, and care enough to share in our journey this way! AND WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT YOUR PRAYERS!!!! I can't even imagine walking this road alone, so Thank you, to us, we won't ever stop saying how much we love you all for helping us through this!
So, i'm planning on BBQing some steaks with sauteed mushrooms and oinions (one of Colin's favorites), i'm trying to get as much weight on him as possible. If he has every advantage going in, this last bit of the process will be as good as we can possibly make it! I guess we just want it to go as fast as possible, at least the chemo and first few weeks of recovery, then HOME.....oh when we can be home, for good, will be the sweetest thing, i think, i've ever known! HOME!

Oh, i better go, Colin needs some help in the wrapping department!

Luv, Melissa


  1. I'm so thankful for all of the time you guys put back into us who are praying and following your journey! Thank you Colin & Missy for caring enough to fill us in! I'm thrilled to hear I'm not the only one reveling in the joys of Christmas, and even more thrilled that you are home, happy, healthy, and enjoying the ones you love the most! You're story has blessed me beyond measure, and I am incredibly thankful for people like you. No matter what life throws at us, you've reminded us to trust in our sweet Jesus and choose to walk in joy and hold fast to the hope of our Great Creator!. Thank you!

  2. Melissa and Colin my husband and I are friends of your Mom and Dads in Lethbridge. We were with you parents in PEI when they got the news of what would be the greatest journey any family would have to take. I just want you to know that I have been following the blog from the beginning and have been so inspired. Please know that you are in our prayers. Thank you for your inspiration.
