Update

Tyler is continuing to get stronger. This has been a good week. Only one day back at Children's for transfusions. Counts are too low to go out into public, but he is home and feeling good. As Miles Levin said, the road to Heaven will always lead us through Hell. But every day now is getting better.

I stopped by to see Stef at The James. He has always been such an encouragement to all of us through this entire process. The fight to beat cancer is always full of set backs before the final victory. Stef has had one of those set backs. Please keep him in your prayers.

"We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We are knocked down, but never destroyed."
--2 Corinthians 4:8,9
Tyler's grandma Alice had a very productive meeting at the James. Always, always, always get a second opinion.


TNT: I found out this morning that one of my fellow runners with Team in Training has a wife who had Burkitt's. She beat it, and has been in remission for about three months. Small world. This morning was a good run. 7 miles. 97 training miles down, 376 to the starting line.

Hey Alfriends!!

Please don't think that we haven't been thinking of you...we certainly have been. We've just been negligent about writing. You are in our thoughts and prayers always.

A belated CONGRATULATIONS, Tyler, for the completion of your treatments. We are thinking positive thoughts for your tests ahead.

Keep working toward your goal, Kyle. We know you can do it. We were just talking about you with the Team in Training folks this weekend. We are looking forward to seeing you at the marathon if not before.

Tyler, it is over! Good job - prayers answered - just a blessed time. Hugs coming your way. Now you can have your life back.

Prayers for my best friend, Sue Albee's family. She lost her fight with cancer Monday June 23rd. Keep her 4 children and 10 grandchildren in your prayers. They lost their father to the same disease 15 years ago.

We MUST find a cure. Too many precious lives are lost and too much suffering for those who win.

Love,

Grandma Bonnie
