We're on the UPswing!!!

Today has been a GREAT day! Colin has been in the best mood, his spirits are awesome and he's feeling strong and ready to fight this to get back to 100% again. He had his first chemo today, finished around lunch time and he has had no side effects to speak of! Praise the Lord!!!! He hasn't had a nap today so he's just showering now and getting ready to have a good night's sleep tonite! Now we wait for more spinal chemo and for his hydration IV to flush all of the high levels of chemo out of his system. We've been told it takes a few days and then he'll be able to get out and come home to Medicine Hat for a week or two!!!! Praise God!! yeay!
Today is also a great day because our very dear friends had a little baby boy last night in Medicine Hat....Our hearts are with you, Chad, Jessie, Micah and baby Isaiah!!! We love you guys, Congradulations!
God is SO good!!!!
I'm off to brave the freak spring snow that has fallen over Calgary....i hope it's as pretty to drive in as it looks like from inside! I have my doubts!
We haven't spoken with our Doc's today, so i have questions and we have some information that we'll be getting tomorrow, and i'll make sure i keep you all posted on what the next few days are going to look like.

  1. Hi guys,

    I hope it was a good night for you - God's mercies are new every morning, for which I am so grateful.

    Jeff is in Calgary and may try to drop by today or tomorrow ... if you don't feel up to visitors, that's totally fine too, Melissa, if that's the case, maybe you could give me a quick call at home, and I'll pass along the message to Jeff? I don't want to post the work cell number online.

    Blessings to you both,
