This past Thursday we drove 6 hours to our oldest daughter and family's home in WI to celebrate our granddaughter Abbi's HS graduation. It was wonderful to be with family again, hugging, laughing, and just soaking in the love and joy. Unfortunately Joel got sick and and fought a cold and cough much of the time. First time he has been this sick in years. Still, it was a good good time.

We were re-acquainted with our grand dog, Koda too, who at one year old is weighing in at 120lbs and stands over 6 ft tall on back legs. He is a gentle giant with quite a personality. A Newfoundland/Poodle mix.
Tomorrow we take another step forward on this cancer journey as I head to the hospital in the early morning hours for a bi-lateral mastectomy. The day has come, and we are moving forward on a wing and a prayer, trusting God in the process. We can use your prayers for the nuclear dye to light up the lymph nodes ( since I have had this once before it lowers success rate somewhat), for lymph nodes to be clear and for surgery to go well! And for the sore throat I have to completely be gone! I will spend one night in the hospital and be home Wed afternoon. We face this with determination and apprehension, working to remain calm and trusting our God who fights for me. Thanks for adding your prayers!
