Josh's treatment in California went well. He goes back in another 3 weeks, but this time he'll be flying. The trip by car was just too long and unfortunately they had horrible weather on the drive home and it made it take a lot longer. He goes to Tucson this Wednesday to see his Dr. up there. They're going to discuss doing a parencentesis, that's when they do an ultrasound to locate the extra fluid in his abdomen and then go in with a needle and take out as much as they can. Hopefully this will alleviate some of the swelling, pain, and pressure he's feeling. He's hoping they'll do it that day, but he's not counting on it! Please pray that his blood count will be right for the next treatment, that he'll have a safe trip, and that his Dr.'s appt. on Wed. goes well and that they will do the parencentesis right away.

My family and I would like to ask all of you to add another family member to your prayer lists. We just found out that our Uncle Howie (our mom's brother) has a malignant brain tumor. He starts radiation and chemotherapy this Thursday. Please pray for strength and comfort for him and his family!
