I am also nervous for Ryans Appointment. I know all of you have been praying your hearts out, which I can't not thank you enough for, however, if you wouldn't mind saying a prayer for this appointment to go well, and that we get good results, we all would appreciate it. Thank You . Thank you. Thank you!!

How happy and sad it was for me to see my baby get his FIRST haircut.
I would like to ask you all to pray for someone very special to me, as he is going through a difficult time right now. I am not clear as to all the details, but I know that his family is concerned for him and a few extra prayers sent his way might be helpful. Thank you!
God Bless you,

I think we have good news. The CT results show markedly smaller lymphnodes. Dr. Cretella says good response from chemo. Are we done? We didn't get that answered. So we are in the air still. We want to take these results and rejoice, but are we honestly done...? Are there still some residual cancer that still needs to be cleared?
Please, Lord, not surgery.
Ryan had a terrible dream that he was filled with cancer. So his nightmare wasn't true, so he was happy about that. We are thankful for the improvement but there is still so much up in the air as to what is next.....
Please pray for peace tonight as we wait until tomorrow to hear for sure.

These are more pictures from our camping trip some of them were way too cute to not share. I hope you enjoy them just as much as I am enjoying them!!!
"What is this stuff?!"
"Eww... It's so sticky!"
If you are going to go camping this summer. I Highly recommend the KOA outside of Mount Rushmore. It's more like a resort. Lots of fun stuff to do. I wish Luke was a little older, because there was fun water slides and lots of swimming pools, and a bouncy pillow. Well here, check it out if you are interested. It was so much fun! Mount Rushmore KOA
Happy Summer Days

Kitchen and stairs in dining room.
Dining room/patio doors, with our lovely view of the dump truck! =)
the mocha-brown room is the kitchen.
My paint project! Living room. Close up of the living room paint project.
Silver, copper and gold, metallic paint on my wall. I love it!!!!
It has a glowy shine to it and depending on where you look and what lights are hitting it, the different colors stand out. It's really more neat in person than what you see here.
It was a great day we got alot accomplished. We got all of the 3/4" sturdy tounge and groove floor board screwed down. When I say screwed down, I am NOT kidding. There are a lot more than 2 thousand screws to hold down the flooring in the kitchen and dining room. Ryan is also going to screw down the flooring in the Living room to where we are going to have carpet. and Ryan said, "So, it better not squeek!" There you have it. We are hopefully going to have a quiet floor here soon! Yah!
Tomorrows plan-- chemo treatment and bring the cabinets down from upstairs. If Ryan is feeling good. He is definitely not feeling top notch these last 2 "easy weeks." The Chemo has caught up with him, and he just doesn't have as much fire as he usually has to get things done. This bums him out. I try to do as much as I can for him so he can conserve his energy, however his "red headed stubborness." kicks in and he pushes himself. Probably farther than he should. So please pray that Ryan's energy improves, and that he lets himself slow down a little more. Good night everyone. Sweet dreams and blessings from our house to yours!

This pic is SO FUN! It is making my night better. This is when we went to Keystone for Memorial Day weekend. We went camping. Here Daddy and Lukey are wrestling. I love their smiles; this is a definite keeper.
