Thank You!!

We are in Houston. Thank you all so much for praying for us! We certainly felt the prayers and the Lord answered them! He was certainly gracious and merciful towards us! We were able to get a wheelchair (and someone besides me to push it!) as soon as we got to the airport. Made getting through security and to the gate so much easier. They took Greg down the jetway, so he only had to walk onto the plane. We got economy seats next to each other, so we had a little extra room. Greg’s pain was tolerable throughout the flight (he might have been highly medicated…Ha!). He hurt, of course, but not nearly as bad as we had anticipated he might. All was ok, until about fifteen minutes before we landed and unfortunately, Greg started throwing up. Not fun, but at least it wasn’t the whole flight.

Once we arrived at the airport, we had someone with a wheelchair waiting on the jetway for us. He took us all the way out where we caught the shuttle for the hotel. Greg just took some more pain meds and we are about to call it a night. He has appointments tomorrow starting at 10am…bloodwork, appt with oncologist, appt with dermatologist and the Ipi infusion #3. Please pray that Greg’s pain level will be tolerable throughout a long day of sitting and waiting tomorrow. We hope to be able to go home on Thursday.

We just wanted to tell you all how much we appreciate each of you and your faithfulness to pray for us. Greg specifically said to express his thanks to all of you. Once we got settled in the room and I opened my computer, we were overwhelmed with your fb messages, emails and blog comments letting us know that you were praying for us. We want you to know that we stopped and thanked God for His goodness to us and let Him know how thankful we are for each of you. We asked that He would bless each of you for being so faithful to pray for us! Thank you again….we love you all!

Trusting His Plan,
Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob

    Thanks for letting us know. I don’t know how you manage to keep this blog updated so well . . . I know you must be tired. I was so upset when I got your email because I had hoped Greg would be better in time for this trip. Tell Greg that Mark and I were praying hard for him and will continue to pray that God would ease his suffering. I hope Greg is able to get some relief and you are both able to get some rest SOON. We love you both.

    I am praying for you both today and hope Greg will be able to get some relief soon. Also praying that this next infusion will be especially effective and the disease will retreat. You are both role models to everyone in your faithfulness to God and to each other and in your courage and strength through this journey. I am thinking of you with love today and every day.

    You have prayers from the Dell Family too! We all prayed for you today, but Matthew especially. He prayed that “Mr. Greg would be renewed inwardly today.” He also prayed for you and the children to have strength. There was more, but that’s the main idea. We love you!
