Patient Chloe

These pics are a few weeks old, but we just now uploaded them from Kevin's iphone. This is when Chloe was sedated to have hearing tests done and to have tubes inserted to prevent future ear infections. She did a super job!

Yet Another Trial

Today we heard the words that we have dreaded: Kevin's cancer has returned, this time in the small intestine (duodenum to be exact). The doctors feel it is in the early stages and that the treatment will be minor compared to last time. It's hard to understand how God put all the pieces together to make our adoption possible, only to have this happen when we've been home only 3 months. But I know He is bigger than this trial, and as always, I ask him to use this trial to increase our faith and love for Him. We owe every bit of Kevin's 2 years being cancer free to Him. Kevin had a feeding tube placed last Thursday. It clogged up this morning and they were unable to unclog it, so they will sedate him in the morning and replace it. Then we will meet with a surgeon to talk about our options. I will let everyone know once we know more.

Chloe is doing well. Kevin and I agree we need to keep things as normal as possible, doing our best to keep routines. Most of all, we want to savor each and every moment we have as a family, because life is uncertain, isn't it?

We love you all and thank you for your prayers!
