Brief Hiatus

Hi Friends, please excuse me for not posting this week--but the PET scans showed up a couple more cancers in my brother's lymph nodes and on Monday they sent him down to the University hospital in Minneapolis for some aggressive chemo treatments. I've been trying to help out with some of the things back home here while Paul and his wife are out of town. They have to be there all week (they have 2 girls at home yet plus their 3 year old grandson).

The good news is that Paul is under the care of a very good doctor down there, one of the best around--so at least we know that he is getting wonderful care. I just feel worried and can't seem to concentrate on anything this week.

So, I'd really appreciate it if you would take a minute and send up a prayer for him and his family. Thanks so much!! ((Hugs))
