Here We Go Again

Chemo is back in full swing. Mel was really tired and nauseated today. She is being hit pretty hard with some toxic and lethal stuff. She received methotrexate today and will continue to receive it through a drip for the next 24 hrs., then they work hard to get it out of her system because it is lethal...scary stuff I think. She has been on my mind non stop as I'm sure she has been for a lot of you. Pray that she can make it through this week, it is going to be a tough one. We are all behind you Mel!! Hang in there and remember all of the prayers being offered in your behalf.

Here are a few more pictures from Mel's week of freedom. There were lots of fun times and laughter. It was like a family reunion for many of us, especially Mel's nieces and nephews who hadn't seen her in over a month.

Mel's smile is the best!!

Melanie finally had someone with the same hairstyle! We had fun taking pictures of her and Eric (brother in-law).

Cute bald heads!

Mom and dad buffing them up! Never a dull moment with us!

We want to thank all of those who contributed to Kaden and Melanie's great Christmas! you will never know how deeply appreciated you are! Tricia, thank you from all of us for working with Sub For Santa on Kaden's behalf. You brought many smiles to Kaden on Christmas morning. Although we had a different Christmas this year, it was one that we will never forget! We saw the pure love of Christ!! A very sincere thank you again to all of you!!

Hang in there, you've got all of Hide Pork praying for you're speedy recovery. Got to talk with Mike, Cami and Angie the other nite. They really love their Sis a ton. That's way nice Kim could come up from Colorado. Glad you had some days away at Greg's to relax with family.
Lot's of new snow today, it's pretty and very peaceful (just like you!)
PS: Still can't believe you stole my haircut, you have a much better shaped head though!

Love Steve, Rosie, Eryn & Ryan
