Home from Graduation

Tired but happy, Jean, Kay and I got home from Portland about 5:15 PM today after a 3+ hour drive in the pouring rain and met Brett for dinner at home. We are so grateful for the chance to see our daughter graduate. Not just graduate, but graduate with 150 credits, planning to sit for the CPA exam this summer, and with a job in hand. Jean you are fabulous.

We had a wonderful visit with family, thanks in large part to terrific planning and execution by Jean and Marc, with big time assistance from Marc's whole family, from many of Kay's girlfriends, and with support from many others, too many to try to name here.

We pray for a quiet and restful week while we give the first course of chemotherapy time to work. We hope that this week will see Kay's blood counts remain strong, that she will be able to have her external bile drainage tube removed soon, and that she will continue to recover from the biliary tract infection completely.

I hope to slow down on the posts this week, and get back to a bit more work at Sound Family Medicine. Also just a time to be thankful for and enjoy our time together as a family at home.
