one more...

...take note of the boxers :)
My eight-eyed tan combat boots, un-laced, with the pant legs tucked in are missing becuase I had already changed into the bowling shoes when this was taken. Trust me. They were AWESOME!

so my wife's a gangsta

It was 80's 90's night for Cosmic Bowling.
Yeah, everyone else went with florescent pinks and greens.
Lacy went with Ghetto-Gangsta-Hip-Hop.
It was awesome.

road trip with some air time

We're off to South Dakota today for a week of camp with THE CAUSE band.
I'll let you know how it went when we get back.
If you're in or around Rapid City, come say "hi".

update on my mom

I'm lagging, I know. It's been a crazy week. Mom had a nine hour surgery on Tuesday and the Doctor was able to remove ALL visible tumors along with some other bits and pieces. She's doing very well. I'm bedside with her right now and she's alert and not in too much pain. We're all taking shifts at the hospital with her. There's a full report on our church's website, but I thought you might want to hear it from me. She's still got a long road of chemo ahead, but stage one is behind us.

Your prayers and support have been overwhelming.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

tough week

The week started with my mom having a fairly routine female-related operation, and ended with the startling news of ovarian-like cancer. A jolt to say the least. I feel comfortable writing about it for the first time tonight because the news was shared with our church family this morning. I won't go into a ton of detail now, but there will be surgery this week, followed with chemotherapy.

Our family is doing OK, not great, but OK. We all feel it at different times. We've all had our moments of reality setting in. We remain optimistic about the outcome, yet overwhelmed with the process. The next few months will most assuredly be different. My dad is living with this the most. He's gaining information as quickly as he can take it in, and determined to be along side for the entire ride. My mom seems to be doing well. I can't imagine what's she's feeling, but her spirits are high.

Our church has been wonderful to us this week. I'm SO grateful to be where we are and have an extended family that loves us. Both my dad and I were absent for this morning's worship, but I hope to be back next weekend. I was able to lead at THE CAUSE last night, and being there ministered to me more that words could express.

Thanks for your prayers. We'll probably be opening a new blog to update you on her progress. I'll post something when that's up.
