February News

Dear Friends,

Well, it is back to the Chemotherapy routine. Every Monday. Every week. Things are going pretty well. The Dr. has reduced my drugs by 25% since I began, so the symptoms are much easier to cope with. My feet hurt almost constantly, but that is about the worst of it.

I had a CT scan last week which shows the tumor may have shrunk a little. Still no news of a surgeon that is willing to do the surgery necessary to remove this little beast. I trust God to do a work where no man can.

Clayton and I took our little motor home to Monterey and Pacific Grove over the Valentine's week. Enjoyed a few days of total relaxation. Love those waves.

A little bragging is in order. Bethany was unanimously nominated by her professors for the Dean's list for Sacramento State University. If chosen by the final committee she will be one of a hundred students in the five colleges there. She was chosen from about 170 students for this honor. Congrats Bethany. We are so proud of you.

Stan is working hard on his degree in nursing. It is amazing the schedule he keeps. Nathaniel is looking forward to his driving test and a little more independence. Smile. Sarah is enjoying her new job and is doing very well at it. I understand that a couple of the engineering teams are vying for her help.

Thank you for your continued prayers.

Much love to you all,

I don't blame you for bragging...what an accomplishment! Congratulations.

Much love and prayers going your way!

It was so good to read your post. Just want you to know that you are always near in prayer. It was good to hear of the accomplishment of your daughter, Bethany. You have every right to brag. That's a mother's God-given right. Take care. Love you.

Sister Brown,

Just dropping in to say hello and to let you know you're still in my prayers. Congratulations to Bethany! I know you all must be very proud of her. God bless you and your family.

Good morning, Sister Brown--

I think of you often and pray for your healing, and for strength as you battle through these dark days.

Your children are remarkable. But then with remarkable parents, what else would one expect!

Love you all
