Hitting the pause button.

Katie: Dear God, thank you for this day. Thank you for this world and universe and everything in this world and universe. Thank you... WAIT. Pause! (To me) How did those test results come out? No chemo?

See-Dub: No chemo!

Katie: Yea! (Resuming prayer) THANK YOU that she doesn't have to do chemo!


We are SO excited that our friend doesn't need chemo! After six weeks of radiation and then with five years of medication, her chance for the cancer recurring elsewhere in her body is just 7.5 percent. We prayed for a low number; we got a low number! Thank you, God, for taking care of our friend!

P.S. - Speaking of Katie's prayers, every single night she prays for Megann's family. Tonight she asked if it was OK to keep doing that, even though it's been so long (eight months) since we lost Megann. After I told her we could never pray enough for them, she said it's just become a habit to include them in her prayer--but she really does want God to take care of them! How precious is my girl?

Thanks Katie! That is so sweet of you to include me. I think God hears the prayers of children over everyone elses. I'm sure yours came through loud and clear. I'm proud to have such a prayer warrior on my side. Tell your mom you deserve a Blizzard!
