Well we are gone with the old and hopefully the new will shower us with blessings!
We had an okay Christmas, best of all was time spent with family and friends. Earl feels so loved by our family and we are thankful for how they have accepted him. To start off the new year Earl will celebrate his 20th birthday tomorrow. We are having a small get together and will go out to Ichi Ban for dinner on the 3rd. I thought it would be a fun place to go given his interest in cooking and culinary arts. He will love how they toss their tools around. After dinner it's off to the hospital to get ready for what we hope will be his last treatment. Hallelujah!!! He has had a pretty good break and is looking forward to finishing. One of the difficulties will be saying good bye to all the nurses and staff on 5B, where he has loved and been loved by so many. He says he is looking forward to having them as friends rather than care givers after all is done.
We wish you all a Happy New Year and pray that those of you who are dealing with cancer will be blessed with good health and a good response to your treatments. For others we wish you a year of good health and joy beyond belief. Let us all be thankful for what we have and help those around us, as we struggle through what life brings us.
Take care, keep in touch
Debbie, Darby and Earl
