And the hat is on!

Nick will have scans on Tuesday and so my worry hat is firmly in place so when I flip out because we ran out of ketchup, no one will be surprised. Nick has settled into a routine of one day up and about and the next day completely wiped out. He is sporadic with the maintenance chemo because the mouth sores are very painful. He attends class only half the time, but is passing economics and acing computer and ceramics.

In other news, our dear friend Lisa Buechler has received some devastating news: her cancer has metasized into her bones throughout her body. She has some very hard decisions to make in the next few days. Jennie, Denise, Ruth and I have been spending all of our extra time at the hospital to help Lisa decifer the various scan results and physician opinions.

Please pray for Nick and Lisa this week. We meet with his doctor on Wednesday afternoon and I'll post again then.

Love to all of you!

Your "hat" is on - my fingers, toes and eyes are crossed for a good clean scan result. Wish the mouth sores and tiredness would go away... Hey Nick - how's about a lazy afternoon movie one day soon?
Always there for you... always thinking of you... always in my prayers. GM Jennie xxx

Dear Lori,
Thanks to you and Jennie, Denise and Ruth for spending time with Lisa. Your love and faith is the medicine that will see her through all that lies ahead. Please ask Lisa if she would like a prayer quilt. If yes, then ask her what her favorite color is and what specific prayer she would like our church to pray as we tie knots on the quilt. I'll express mail it to you so that others can add prayers each time they visit Lisa. God loves, listens and answers. God Bless Lisa.
Love, aunt Chris
