Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow

We have just been informed that Judy will have to be at Covenant–Lakeside tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. She can expect to start surgery around 9:30 a.m., but as you know, that always depends on many factors. In our initial office visit Dr. Phillips had told us to expect a two- to three-hour surgery, but it could be longer or shorter, depending on the extent of the disease.

I will let y'all know as soon as feasible what Dr. Phillips tells me after he completes surgery.

So, tomorrow is the big day. We are ready, in no small measure because of your support.

I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers! God bless you!

Hey Judy!

Just want you to know I will be sending many prayers your way and hopeful thoughts for both you and Jurgen ( I know sitting in the waiting room can be a really hard place to be). I know you will be fine. You are the best on-the-bike dog scarer I know, so I know you are fearless! Love and hugs,


P.S. By the way, I have my entire church of 1200 people praying for you thru this!
