Back To Houston

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted…really busy month for us!

Tomorrow will be five weeks since Greg’s heart surgery.  He continues to do well with his recovery and is getting stronger every day.  He has not returned (physically) to work, but has been able to work a lot from home which has been a blessing.  He is still not allowed to drive, but that should only be for another week or so.  He also still has a five pound limit on what he can lift, which should also be for only another week.  He is walking about 3-4 miles almost every day, and for the most part is feeling pretty good.  We are so thankful that his recovery has gone so well!

Tomorrow evening we will be headed back to Houston.  Greg has tests/scans scheduled for all day Thursday.  On Friday, he will have another test and then we will meet with the oncologist that afternoon.  The reason for the scans and appointments is to determine the next step in treatment.  Unfortunately, the tumor in Greg’s leg has grown quite a bit, since he quit taking the oral chemo.  But before they start him back on that or choose a different treatment, they want to do complete scans to make sure that there is no other cancer in his body. 

We would love to be able to come home on Friday, but think it will probably be Saturday morning before we can get back.  We covet your prayers while we are on this trip for the following things:

1. That our family will handle our current circumstances in a way that pleases the Lord and points others to Him.

2.That there will be NO new cancer found in Greg’s body. 

3. That the tumor in his leg would be subcutaneous only, and not involving the muscle and or nerves.

4. That the Lord would give the doctor wisdom and guidance as he makes the decision re: the next step.

5. That we would have a peace and be in agreement with what the doctor recommends.

We have been so blessed by the outpouring of love and kindness shown to our family since Greg’s surgery.  Thank you to everyone who has provided meals, given gifts, came to the hospital, cared for our kids, prayed for us, sent cards to us, etc!!  We have truly experienced God’s goodness and faithfulness!  We still have a ways to go on this journey, but are confident that everything that happens in our lives is for our good and His glory!

Trusting His Plan,

Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.  2 Cor. 4:8-9
