April 9,2013 chemo round 2 day 3

Standard

Nothing exciting to share really today……round two is making Kevin very, very tired but so far no other major side effects.   Uneventful after round 2 day 3….and I am so grateful!

Kevin should be going home on Saturday morning….in time to celebrate Blake’s 10th birthday!

This Sunday, there is a fundraising poker tournament being sponsored by SBFD in Santa Barbara.  There is still space available if you are interested in participating in this fundraising event.   Our family will be the beneficiary of the funds raised at this event to assist us as we get through the rest of this battle.  If you are interested in donating but are unable to attend the event donations can also be made by clicking here.

The local Santa Barbara online news outlet noozhawk.com did a nice write up on Kevin and the upcoming poker tournament/fundraiser.

We are so completely overwhelmed by all the support we have received over the past month, and are humbled by the outpouring of support and love that continues to be bestowed upon us.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I had the opportunity to sneak in to Hold Fast youth group tonight for the opening announcements and encouragement and worship (snuck in with my Aunt to hear Brianna sing).  Such a blessing to see these kids worship God.   But Doug Colby said it best tonight when he reminded us that we are to Give Thanks to the Lord because HE IS GOOD.  Not because everything is perfect, or life is a bowl of cherries.  Just because God himself is good.  We may not understand all that we are going through or why it is a part of our life, but God has a plan.  And we will just give thanks….because he is good….and his love endures forever.

 

Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders,

His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.

  1. Love and hugs and endless prayers…Tim is a six year survivor of TC. It’s a tough battle, but Kevin will make it…I promise. Stay strong. God is good . (Kevin used to babysit our kids 🙂

    I am amazed by your strength and your faith. I know that you will get through this, one day at a time. God Bless Kevin, you, and the kids. Every day I am praying for you. Love you.
