Back from Yellowstone

Amy began her fourth treatment cycle today. We've had serious colds going around in our family the past week and we've been very anxious about the possibility of having to delay Amy's treatments if she were to contract anything, so it is a tremendous relief to have had her cleared for the rounds this morning. Amy is hiding out in her bedroom until the illness blows over. Although terribly dull, it's the best way to ensure that no errant hugs and kisses spread the "joy."

Last week, we enjoyed a family vacation to Yellowstone Park (which is like Disneyland for Amy). We rented a cabin in Island Park and stocked it with plenty of goodies--including Mystery Science Theater 3000 films! While in the park, we witnessed the Pink Cone Geyser going off; a rare and awesome experience. Pink Cone is our favorite geyser because it looks like a pimple on the chalky face of the caldera... Pictures to follow when I upload them.

Also, Anthon has a blog with stories and videos authored by himself. He'd like to share it with everyone:

Half Way!

As of last Monday, Amy is half way done with chemotherapy. She's well into the routine now and she's often complimented on her lovely scarves. Amy always keeps her wellness covenant by helping others wherever she goes. She recently comforted a lady who was at chemo for the first time and looked frightened. After they unhooked Amy for the day, she went and sat with the lady and taught her how to tie scarves in a turban style. She wants to be sure to show her gratitude to the Lord in every way possible.

Amy was delighted to be reunited with her granddaughter Claire last night after the Burches returned from a scouting trip to Oregon. They will move at the end of the summer, but in the meantime, it's so much fun to have the baby right here!
