it's been a whole year.

one year ago today was the day our lives were changed. it was the day that the word cancer entered into our lives yet again. talking to him tonight made me remember all that we have endured this last year. so many ups and downs. it's so cool to be looking forward to his arrival home after being out on tour again. it's hard to imagine him drumming again, the way he used to, and even better after seeing him so sick for so long.

let's just hope that these last 3 treatments put him into remission.
what a difference a year makes:
5 minutes BEFORE we
found out he had cancer

after the tumor was removed
trying to escape
keeping things as normal as
possible by doing homework
with dad
having to shave his head
a bad chemo day


"suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, character produces hope and hope does not disappoint us because of the love that God has poured out into us through the Holy Spirit." Romans 5: 3-5

All I can say is AMEN! As we wait for Arden to arrive with her little heart that will need surgery only days after she is born (baring God doesn't heal her before birth!) we think of those who have gone before us on a path paved with suffering, grace, and hope. We think and pray for you all often. Here's to the upcoming full remission!!!

What a year of seeing God work, answered prayers and drawing closer to Him and each other. Thank you for sharing with us while you walk through this journey.
