Worn out

Steve is especially tired today. His voice is weak, and his speech is slurred. He looks more unsteady on his feet than he has since the weekend.

He's worked from home all day and is on the verge of a well deserved nap. As Steve would say, we won't go out for high-energy dancing tonight.

We just received via e-mail lab results from yesterday. There are some values out of range, but nothing is at an alert level. Steve and his body continue to fight and stay strong, and we are incredibly thankful, even on these more difficult days.


The bone marrow donor drive for Karen Mellow Stock last weekend brought in more than 800 possible donors! We continue to pray that her perfect match is discovered soon.


Please add to your prayers Connor Cruse, a fellow Frisco resident who has been battling cancer for four years. This sweet 8-year-old boy has already endured so much -- so cheerfully, so faithfully. His family has just learned that his tumor is still growing despite his current clinical trial.


One of my current favorite quotes, from C.S. Lewis:
"You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."
