Gwen starts round 2 on Monday. I think I have now caught up to present time.
Being that this is Valentine’s Day weekend, I think it is appropriate to take time to recognize the outpouring of love, support, and generosity shown to our whole family throughout the past two months. We cannot even begin to thank everyone adequately! The notes, prayers, donations, food, phone calls, texts, and talks have been so appreciated.
We are overwhelmed at the response to the 5K happening next weekend and are so thankful to those participating and especially to Gwen’s colleagues who are putting this together for her. One of her first questions in the doctor’s office post-surgery was about cost. She was told not to worry about it and to focus on staying as healthy as possible so she could fight this disease and keep well while we basically wait for science to catch up. How could she not worry about cost? I personally am overwhelmed by the generosity shown to my sister – I can only imagine how she feels. Thank you for helping to ease her worries on that front so she can focus her energy!
