Happy 58th Birthday

Al has made it past another milestone - 58 years old today. The second surgery is behind us and he seems to be recovering well. Down to only one crutch. Off the pain meds, so he can start driving himself to work again tomorrow. I am praying that he will level out on this plateau for many years. This summer they are suppose to be coming out with a new chemo that his oncologist is talking about putting him on. We'll see. As long as the one he is on is working.... Like they say, "If it ain't broke, Don't fix it."

He is due to have a bone marrow biospy this Friday. We will see what has been going on in his blood for the past few months. I pray that the protein levels have remained almost zero, but that his red and white blood cells would start producing some healthy stuff to give him some energy.

He is now vested in his 401(k) at work, so he feels better about if he should get laid off. Haven't heard anymore talk about that lately. You know the drill ... they wait until your sure they aren't going to do anything ... then, WHAM! But, we are trying not to make it a daily habit to worry about all that.

Praise God, I have an interview tomorrow! Not sure what will come of it, but at least it is a sign that there is at least one job out there. Just want to do what God's will is for us. It is with the government, so it would be really good benefits.

No lookers yet on our property. Guess the timing is not right, yet. Just keep us in your prayers for all these issues.

Karen I just heard about Al losing his job. I have put you and Al on my prayer list and sent out a request to my fellow prayer warriors for prayer as well. my e-mail is hdennisbrown1d@sbcglobal.net
Please keep me up dated on Al. I know that God answers prayers and he will watch over you. We just have to keep the faith and turn our problems over to him. Remember no matter how big the storm is, God is bigger.
