The day's been pretty good.

Just the normal routine for us when we come. We could do it with our eyes closed... and sometimes do. I don't know what is about a waiting room that makes me sleepy. It's like there's laughing gas in the air vents or something. I've been yawning and drowsy all morning.

Frank had the bone scan first this morning. The tech said it didn't look like a compression fracture to her. Humm... not what we wanted to hear. So, we'll just filter that news like this..."she can't tell from that ~ lets see what the MRI shows".

He self medicated, as usual, for the bone marrow biopsy. New drugs this time. They didn't work as well. He said this one was much more painful for him than it had been in a long time. He's glad it's over. The tech was bragging on her bone sample. I was happy to hear that. Let's get some answers!

We're waiting on the MRI at 6. It's a full body, so it'll take several hours. He usually sleeps through them so that's good. Another waiting room... a nap for me too!

Frank and I are both glad we're here. It's always an adjustment, on many levels of emotions, to come back. Especially when it's an unscheduled visit like this one. But he is hurting quite a bit and he's limping. He woke up in the middle of the night needing medicine, which he's not eager to do usually. He knows we needs some answers and he's just wanting to feel good again.

Please pray these will tests will give us answers. Of course, our hearts desire is that he still be in remission. But as he and I prayed together this morning.... prepare our hearts for Your will, and give us the strength to live out in faith Your plan for us, in order to give You glory.

He's reading all this over my shoulder... (i can't get him to type) and sends his love to all..............
