Consult This Morning

Duke agreed to allow Tricia to receive the remainder of her treatments here on the beach, so this morning at 11am, we have a consult at the cancer center in Nags Head. Hopefully, they'll have her meds ordered so that she can receive her second round of chemo tomorrow.

On a side note, my grandparents are driving in today all the way from OK. Despite the fact that the real reason for their trip was to attend the funeral of my Pop Pop's sister, one of my cousins near Raleigh just had a new baby boy, and Gwyneth was about 2lbs the last time her great-grandparents saw her, so this will be an exciting trip for them.

BTW, I uploaded several more of our beach family pics over on my Photo Blog, if you're interested.

Thanks.

Nate

I hpe all works out as planned so she can get her treatments started up again. I know how hospitals can be.

So glad your grandparents are coming out,what a drive all the away from Oklahoma. I wasn't aware they were from my great state! What a "small world" LOL.

You are all still in our prayers, and I think will probably remain there always!

Nate, I'll be praying for your grandparents safety while they drive all that way. And for your pop-pop's heart with the death of his sister.

And PRAISE GOD that Tricia will be receiving the remainder of her treatments near home....it's ALWAYS good to be home. Still praying for remission...FAST, and long term too!

I've really enjoyed the pictures of you and your family this week. That is what life is all about!

Have you and Tricia heard the song "Healer" by Planetshakers? It's a powerful song that has ministered to me since the first time I heard it. The story behind how the song was written is incredibly moving. I think it would really touch you and Tricia. You can check it out on youtube.

Praying for healing for you!
