Whirlwind is the only word I can use to describe our life right now. We talked to St. Jude's Hospital and they wanted us there Sunday to start a "work-up." That was just too soon for us to get everything together, so we are going to go on Tuesday, hopefully leave for a couple days at Christmas, then start treatment the day after Christmas. This is way sooner than I had imagined, but it is good to get started sooner than later. The great thing is that St. Jude's will fly Joe and I there so he doesn't have to endure a 7 hr. car ride. We are still working on lodging. They have a Ronald McDonald House, which has one room for the four of us, common areas and shared kitchens. This would be free, but we are worried about all of our ability to sleep in the same room. So, the next few days will be spent trying to pack up our belongings for about 8 wks. Please pray that we remember everything and that God would be our peace in the midst of our "whirlwind." Merry Christmas to all of you. We love you!
