Sunday, April 10th

What a wonderful day! Jacob had a very light schedule for therapy. He was done by 1:30. It was gorgeous here, we couldn’t just sit around and waste the day, so we decided to break out of this joint. Ken’s sister Kim brought over a vehicle for me so I would have some wheels to get back and forth to all the appointments. It was just too tempting! We’ve been stuck in this place way too long, so we hopped in the new van and left for Hastings (the town where both my sisters and their families live). We had a wonderful time! It was 85 degrees and Jacob was loving the fresh air and the freedom. Along with all the cousin time. We were able to stay until 7:00 and it was nice to see and smooch on Caleb. Jacob and I had a hard time leaving though – back to reality.

Well, tomorrow is another big day for Jacob. We have to head back over to Helen DeVos Hospital at 11:00 for Jacob to get some blood work done and then he will have surgery at 1:00 to have his port put in. We will be staying there both Monday and Tuesday night as he will also be starting his chemotherapy. Please keep Jacob in prayer while he goes through another tough process over the next couple days. Thank you for all your prayers!

    I just want you to know we are all thinking of you and praying for your recovery. (I am in Florida with Kathy & Mickey & Evan and my sister Becky and her husband Vern) The Holland Methodist Church has you on the Prayer Chain so you know many many people are praying for you! Also my best friend, Diane has you on her church prayer list in Bloomingdale, Illinois. It’s wonderful to read all the positive news! The rehab center sounds really great with all the latest electronics and fun things to do! We all love you!

    Hi Jacob. Sounds like Sunday was lots of fun. Who knew it could get so beautiful and warm here in the Spring!
    I have a sister who has had a port put in. She didn’t much like the surgery. You must be a super hero to go through all these procedures. Pastor Ron and I keep praying for you. Here are a couple more jokes for you:
    What do you call a pig that plays basketball?
    A ball hog!
    What do hockey players and magicians have in common?
    Both do hat tricks!
