Friday was our last day to take Krista for her radiation treatments. Picture one shows her coming up the hall after her treatment. My first affiliation with The Cancer Treatment Center in Williamsport was with my father and that was in 1990 and I was so impressed with everyone and the total facility, and once again we have had the same feelings for the facility and the staff. What would our families and patients do without such places and the people God uses to staff these loving and caring centers. Lou and I were also impressed in their "mission statement".
The concert was wonderful on Thursday night and very well attended. It was Chapter 6 and they were at their best. They were a hit with all age brackets. Lou and I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Thomas and Peggy after the concert. They had just returned from the D.R., where they had been on a mission trip for a month. They both felt blessed that they were able to work with the people from Haiti . Dr. Thomas told us that he delivered a baby, the first one in over forty years. They stated that many of the earthquake victims were brought to the hospital that our church has built several years ago. It was wonderful to talk to both of them and see the love of God and the love for the victims in their faces. It wasn't long before Lou and I had tears rolling down our faces. Praise God for the people He places in such places to do His will, and their willingness to do His will.
Saturday brought very cold weather to us and we quickly got ready for the day and took Estee for her grooming. At the end of the session, Estee stuck out her tongue at the wrong time and it got clipped with very sharp shears, so we had a bloody mess. With ice and time, we got the bleeding stopped and Lou drove us into Wellsboro, and we both took turns staying with her in the car while the other got our HINI flu vaccine. Lou brought us home and had a quick lunch and he went back to his house to do some bookkeeping for his friend, and while he was gone Estee started bleeding again, so between trying to get a shower and my normal Saturday chores, we had a different afternoon. I finally got the vanilla carpeting in our bedroom and bathroom cleaned up and got Estee bathed again, about the time Lou returned. He sat down with Estee and she seemed to calm down, the bleeding slowed down and she went to sleep. We were late getting to Shawn and Maegans, however, everyone waited for us. We had a wonderful evening. The pizza was great, Sue had made a different crust with yeast and baking powder, everyone agreed it would be a keeper.
After dinner, we played I Spy Snap, card game with the older girls and another card game, that was equally as much fun. The girls were great at both of them, the adults played cards while the older girls had showers, and a then, I got to read to both of the older girls before they went to sleep. They both have beautiful book and both enjoy being read to. We all had a great time laughing and playing cards until it was past all of our bedtimes. We came out to come home and it was 5 degrees. Trav and Noell, I bet you are getting the snow that you wanted. Enjoy!!
As most of you know we are planning on leaving PA on the 4th of February and that brings us to the reason for the Blog, you can all keep up with us on the Blog, we won't be calling everyone each night and such. Just log on and you can see what is happening. There is no way possible we can correspond to each the way each of you want. So this is the best way we can think of. We have had many wonderful comments of it thus far. It does make the effort worthwhile. The only time we may not be able to post is if we don't have a secure connection.
Tomorrow is Church and Sunday School and Lou and I have a dinner engagement with our Pastor and his wife. Monday will bring us to appointments with lawyers and the final signatures on POA's. We will be monitoring the weather station very closely now and like Susie told us tonight, we are free to make our own plans and go when we feel is best for us. Will keep you posted on our plans.
