Associated Press has just published an article on Matt Chandler‘s progress and response to his brain cancer.
Also, Mark Driscoll has a link on his website to another article
My mother introduced me to this video and I think it was funnier watching her reaction. I posted this for you, Mom!
My sweet little boy is home recovering from surgery. What a trooper he has been! We arose early Thursday morning to have him to the hospital by 5:30 AM for surgery that was scheduled at 7:30 AM.
We passed the time by watching a little television and playing Hi Ho Cheerio.
Mitch’s parents joined us right before Andrew was wheeled into the operating room so it was a special time to surround him with faces he loved. His surgery actually started ten minutes early but lasted longer than we had originally thought. He was back into his private room around 9:20AM and, after Pop prayed for his recovery and healing, Andrew slept the rest of the day. His pain has been minimal, thanks to Tylenol with Codeine.
This is where Andrew stays all day, except to rise to go the restroom. We take his bandages off tomorrow….I hear screams a’comin’.
I am so thankful my mother was here during this time. Her being here has allowed me to come and go with our other two children, make a grocery stop, take a brief walk alone, and not cook! She has invaded my house with her amazing cleaning and organization skills so I now have order in my kitchen drawers, folded and sorted clothes in the boys’ dressers, and totally clean and folded laundry!!!! Do you know the last time I had all the laundry clean, folded AND put away?!? I can’t either.
Luke is doing better after his root canal and is taking the antibiotic like it’s candy. I, however came down with a stomach bug this afternoon as I was at the park with the two little ones. Exhausted, I laid down with Andrew early evening and we slept for four hours, hence why I’m up at 2:30 typing this post. Also, Mitch has hurt his back so he is sleeping the night away with pain meds. Except for Abigail, we are all a bunch of sick folks!
I have purposefully not been too specific about the type of surgery he had but it had to do with his male parts so it might be helpful not to ask him too many details about the incisions, etc. HA!
Amazing time lapse video of US Airways Flight 1549 as it lay in wait in the Hudson River.
I know that it’s been quite a while
since my fingers typed a post.
But these past few days have been a blur
So it’s my bed I’m wanting most.
Barbara has posted many videos of actual rescue footage of trapped people in Haiti.
I’m overwhelmed by the video of a wife who was trapped for days and, when discovered, sent a message through the rubble to her husband that, “even though I might die, I will always love you.” The husband began frantically digging until, with help from a team, she emerged singing praises to God.
This is my wonderful husband. Always super busy with work, typing on his keyboard, writing a sermon, reading his online Bible, doing our family finances, answering emails, initiating friendships, following up on tasks, etc.
Sometimes he does those things while he watches Jimmy.
Or after taking a break from reading one of the various titles he’s checked out from the library.
Having warm feet helps him to concentrate.
And he didn’t seem to mind me jumping around the room, taking these pictures while he multi-tasked. What a man.
