Nina Visits

Mom's cousin Nina from Colorado came to visit last week that we hadn't seen in 10 years! We had a good visit and I know mom enjoyed seeing her again. We shared memories and laughs with old pictures she brought us. We even had a puzzle marathon night, along with graduation parties and doctor appointments. Whew! Thank you Nina soooo much for coming to visit. We miss you already and love you very much!

Good News and Good News

Yes, it has been raining and cloudy lately, but the sun is shinin' in our house!

Mom had a CT scan last Thursday and has been waiting anxiously for the results. And boy were our prayers answered! We will get the full results on Monday, but the nurse called today and said that everything looked good!

Also, yesterday mom had her scope. We will get the full results in a week or so, but the doctor said that it looked better yet! Just what we wanted to hear. Things are sure moving in the right direction, which makes getting treatments a whole lot easier for mom.

I was talking to mom earlier today about how if you really think about it you can make yourself sick (headache, soar throat, etc.) she replied by saying yeah and if you really think about it you can make yourself better! I know that if it wasn't for her supporting friends and family encouraging her to stay strong, she would not have the mindset that she does now. We thank you ALL again for your love, support, and prayers. There is nothing better.

Love, Jenelle

In Memory of Betty

Much love, thoughts and prayers are with the White Family during this difficult time.

“The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”—Revelation 21:1-4
