When it rains....

Looks like we might be a one car family pretty soon. I took our van into the shop this morning and they just called and told us that it looks like there is a cracked cylinder and that they would put some magic coating in it to prolong the life, but that we should start looking for a new vehicle, as there is no certainty how long our van will actually last. Before we get a new vehicle we would actually have to pay off the one that is causing all the trouble. Girls....start the sign up list I might need a ride to our coffee group before long. I would like to say in the midst of this sad news that we heard today, that if we had gotten this news before Thanksgiving when Rob's sister and brother in law, traded us their 5 seater honda for Rob's 2 seater truck then traded that in for their vehicle, I might just be freaking out right now. But because of Tamara and Daryl and their kindness, we will have a car that actually fits our whole family.

Add that to my searching today to find out about the gamma knife radiation and learning that Jack will have a helmet screwed into his head in 4 different places to disperse the radiation into the correct position in his brain, and I would say that I am on the verge of tears.

Please keep our family in your prayers. These are all temperal things but it seems very overwhelming at this very moment.

I might just know where you can borrow a car ANYTIME!!! Call us. We will continue praying, and lots of special prayers for your peace, Tammy.

I hate it when life is stinky -- I'm guessing Jack is going to think life is super-stinky with things screwed into his head. But when he gets to scream: Cancer-free!!! life will be stinky no more!

I'd listen to that Hanner lady -- she may be onto something!
