The countdown

Hi, everyone!

It's been a really quiet week around here. Sahara's doing fine - no sickness (woo hoo!), just dealing with some fatigue from the radiation, but otherwise doing so well. Today we started packing up some things in our room. What a great feeling that was! I normally hate packing, but knowing that we are getting closer and closer to going home makes it almost fun. LOL.

We are looking forward to seeing Rick on Friday night. He's playing less than half an hour away from where we are staying! It's all Sahara's been talking about for days. I'm sure she will find the energy to enjoy it and have a blast. :)

Saturday morning she gets admitted to the hospital for her last big round of chemo...five days of it. We are hoping and praying that it goes smoothly, and that her counts stay good - so we can finally go home. Not sure exactly when that will be, and I don't have flights booked yet. Things can change so quickly. But we are going to do our very best to be home to make at least an appearance at the benefits. We just can't hardly wait!!!

My posts might be sporadic the next few days. We are going to be really busy, and our dear blogmistress will be taking a much-deserved vacation. She burns the candle at both ends 24/7 - another woman who really needs her own cape, like Gramma Dooley. LOL.

But rest assured, things are going well here, and we continue to pray that Sahara is going to beat this thing. She is certainly moving in the right direction with the passing of every day! God is GREAT!

Take care!
