Well, Joel and I are off to start the chemo. We start this morning at 9:00 AM and they've told me to anticipate the first session to last about 5 hours. My stomach is in knots but at least I slept well last night. We went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday's last night for my "last meal." Most people have told me that with the chemo you have a metallic taste in your mouth and food doesn't taste so good. As you all know, I LOVE to eat. I made sure I got a great meal before all the metal. Joel's also taking me for breakfast this morning. I'm just living it up! Please keep our family in your prayers today. Thanks!

You will do just fine! Who knows, you may not have any effects at all and just sail right through all of this with flying colors.

Keep your chin up and when it gets too heavy, God will send His angels to hold it up for you!

Joel and Lisa, we're praying for you both. I loved the video from the zoo and the pictures of your family are great. We miss you guys. Did you know, that when we move to Michigan it will only be a 12 1/2 hour drive to Columbia? Granted, there are also 4 airports within and hour and a half of our house, but I hear the word options...

We love you!
