Round six on Monday

We decided to come back to Dallas for a few days instead of staying in Houston. I have been feeling great, having had so much time off from chemo. And this is likely the last few days where I will be feeling good before Christmas so we decided to come back. The absence of pain and fatigue is absolutely delightful. Every hour is sweet. Our friend David Clemmons came over last night to provide the muscle behind getting and carrying in a tree - usually a chore, but this year a pleasure. The weeks before Christmas are usually so full of activity, but I had to squeeze everything into this weekend. It didn't fit.

Christine unfortunately was not doing as well and has now come down with a cold, so we are not sure if she'll go back for my appointment Monday. This would be a big disappointment because it is an important appointment for us Monday. The CT scan results will be evaluated and we'll assess how the cancer is doing and make plans for the course of treatment over the next couple months.

Although Christine may not accompany you, God goes with you and will be by your side. We,ve asked for this in Jesus's Holy Name.

It was so great to see you at work last Friday. It is so amazing to me that you always looked so normal to me. I could never tell that you are fighting cancer whenever when I meet you. Either that is because of my lack of keen observation or simply because your spiritual strength is not letting the cancer get better of you.
We will continue to pray for you for the continued success of your treatment.
Take care and have a great holiday !

Greg, what a blessing it was for me to see you in the audience during the Christmas concert. I was so happy that you felt well enough to attend. You are right to savor every minute of life. I continue to pray daily for you and Christine. All my love, in Christ
