HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY to Chase!

He's so excited ~ and we are too! We all woke him up singing, and then surprised him with donuts. Chandler told him he wouldn't really be 7 until 2:51 pm, which had him a little concerned. But Daddy reassured him it would be his birthday all day long. Whew! Big sister can tease with confidence because she was born at 3am! Zach and Chase have been wrestling and rolling around for days. Male bonding ~ nothing like it.

Frank's levels have recovered and he's off the shots. He's responded well to all the treatments thus far. Now, we are trying to wrap our thoughts around the next trip to Little Rock. We leave March 24 for 3-4 weeks, where they will collect his stem cells. All of this is overwhelming and an adjustment, of course, with emotional highs and lows, but overall I think Frank's doing great. Frank has always had a positive disposition, and I continue to be amazed at his strength.

Psalm 46:1 My prayer for he and I is that we will not worry these next 2 weeks. Rather, plan and prepare the best we know how and fully rely on God's promises for the the rest. looks easier on paper! This is a challenge indeed. But the fight is not ours.

Thank you for your prayers.I am thankful for the hope we have in our Lord.Love to you all, Peggy
