Today we found out that my dad does in fact have CLL again, but the doctors are optimistic - they say that there have been a number of new treatments that have shown to be quite effective, and we will give them a fighting shot. On Thursday my dad will meet with his Oncologist and we will find out what plan of action we will be taking.

I am really trying to be optimistic, and to look at the blessings that we do have. We are going to make the most of the time that we have together, and make memories that will last a life time.

I am grateful that my family is all close together right now, I am grateful that Jordan found work in Calgary and this is where our home is right now. I am grateful for my childrens happy natures and that they are so resilient and optimistic.

We are busy planning my brothers wedding that will take place the middle of May, and my baby brother has put his mission papers in and will soon find out where he will be serving for the next 2 years. I think that a good family vacation needs to be in there somewhere too, but we will see how things play out.

This is very sad to hear. It is reassuring that there are better treatments available now. We are keeping you all in our prayers. We love your Mom and Dad so much. They are wonderful people who love the Lord.
