After the tough news we got on Thursday, Marisa and I went out of town for a few days while Marisa’s parents took care of our Zion and Jacoba and while Zekijah went to the Tammings. (the blogger GT for those that don’t know)

Our days were filled with trying to sleep, pray and process. The process part was the most difficult.

Then before we knew it, it was Tuesday, the day of the new chemo. We spent the day in the cancer clinic and tried to brace ourselves for the onslaught. As usual, Marisa shone.

Marisa is still taking steriods (the usual practice for three days surrounding the chemo) and is feeling the strength from them. We are filled with trembling hope.

Thanks to all who posted, prayed, sent a card and gave meals.

Love Mendelt
