Tables Turned!

The tables have turned! On Monday night Mark started running a low fever and by 11:00 p.m. he was very sick with vomiting and diarrhea. Thankfully, it has proven to be a 24 hour thing and he is feeling better today. And, of course, having lived with vomiting and diarrhea for months, we were so prepared for these symptoms!!  I kindly offered him my disposable underwear, but he refused them. He did accept some of my jello stash late Wednesday evening, and he has been drinking his way through my stockpile of Gatorade. He slept good last night and is feeling better today. My only prayer now is that I don't get it! I will be so mad if I end up sick with diarrhea AGAIN!! LOL!!

Good News!!
Some of you have been praying for John and Ellen. John went to the oncologist this morning for his second chemo treatment. They found out today that his main tumor has already shrunk 2 cm and the tumors in his liver are responding to the chemotherapy! The doctor added a new chemo drug to his regimen today that will specifically target his type of tumor. Thank you for praying, and please keep it up. God is at work!

Relay for Life
I will be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life this Friday night. The Relay For Life takes place in cities all across our nation and is one of the main fund raising events for the American Cancer Society. If you are interested in reading more about it, in participating, or in making a donation to our team you can visit the link below. Our team's name is "Laura's Symphony." Big thanks to Dana Cline for putting this team together and honoring me in this way. Love you!
