Things could be on the up and up!

I had a brain and spinal MRI on Thursday. Things went well, but we did not have the results for the brain portion of the MRI when we left the hospital on Friday. The cancer has been reduced in the upper part of the spine, which was encouraging to us all! After so many disappointments this was great news! It does not appear to be affecting the lower part of the spine, which would have been great, but kinda unrealistic.....which the Dr. told us. Sorry I haven't blogged in the last couple of days, I have had a lot of company in town the last couple of days. Once things slow down around here I'll put a few more posts up.......Until then they will be kinda sparatic. Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

That is such great news Justin!! I know that God is working in and through you during all of this and I am just filled with so much hope for you! Your team of encouragers and prayer warriors gets bigger every day and I can't even begin to tell you how many people email me and ask me how you're doing! Everyone at our Target store is rooting and praying for you, along with so many others!
It was fun to see you for a little bit on Thursday night...you are one popular guy!
Hope you are having a great time with your Colorado visitors!! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend Justin!

Hey JJ - It was great to see you and meet Kyle's family today.

You mean so much to me and many others. I know how important it is for you to see everyone. Don't ever feel bad about taking a rest. You need it and I'm sure it helps.

Just work on building up your strength. I'm praying for you every moment.

Love you -

Justin, what incredible news!

I seem to have come down with something, so I'll have to postpone my visit. Which probably works out for the best considering Kyle and fam are in for the weekend as well as friends from CO.

Have an enjoyable weekend!

Lots of Love from LaCrescent!
