Another day gone……200 to go! Just kidding! I’m really not counting. That would be sad. I think that would make me very depressed!
Yesterday was a pretty fun day! I had the boys and all the cousins again while everyone else was at the Estate Sale. That was fine with me. We had a good time! We were sitting around kind of bored, so we decided to go miniature golfing. It was a lot of fun! Once we were done, the kids just played around on the playground. It was a beautiful day, so it was so nice to be outside. Once the sale was done, everyone went out for dinner at a local fish place. It’s take-out and it’s awesome!!! That’s always a big treat. We look forward to it every time we visit my Mom and Dad. Anyway, we got the fish and fries and headed to the park across the road to eat it. After we ate, the kids had a blast playing on the beach for a while. Then we went downtown in Pentwater and got ice cream. We walked across the road to the park so the kids could run around and wear off some of that sugar. 🙂 Jacob tried running a few times and did really well the first time, just a little slower than the olden days, but it got a little bit sloppier the more he tried. Obviously his legs were getting tired, but I was impressed with how well he did. At the end of the evening, the kids decided to put on a talent show for us in the gazebo in the park. They were so fun to watch! 🙂
Today we just took it easy. Didn’t do a whole lot until later this afternoon. We went and visited my Grandma. She is 96 years old and in better health than a lot of people half her age. She is always a hoot to visit. She is so funny and has such a great sense of humor. We had a very nice time! We went back to my parents, had some dinner and headed out again. We went down to the beach and the kids had a wonderful time playing. They even swam! I don’t think the water temperature in Lake Michigan is over 55 degrees, but the kids sure didn’t care! We were going to get ice cream again, but they were closed. Probably for the best!
Well, time to head back to Hastings tomorrow morning. Jacob and I will have to stop by Grand Rapids on the way so he can get his blood counts checked – AGAIN!!! Please pray that his counts are up. Actually, all of his counts are good except for his neutrophil count which was very low on Friday. Hopefully it’s at least 1000 tomorrow so he can start chemo on Tuesday. If not, I don’t know what will happen or how long they’ll put it off. Maybe until next Monday. Hopefully not, because then we can’t go home later this week. 🙁 We really want to go home and we really want to see Ken. We miss him so much! We haven’t seen him since the benefit dinner. Please keep Jacob and the rest of us in your prayers! We know your prayers are working. You all are amazing people to think of us and pray for us so often. We appreciate it so much! Thank you!
