Road Trip

We made it to Rochester, though about got blown off the road in all four states which we traveled! Jayme tolerated the trip just fine and he is now settled in a luxury bed at the Hampton Inn. The hotel is great and has just been remodeled. This will also be my home for 10-14 days when he has surgery next month.

He has five tests and two appointments with physicians over the next few days. They will re-stage the cancer and we will meet with the surgeon, Dr Nichols, on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the plan for surgery. I'm crossing my fingers that all goes well. I'm just so glad we made it to this point.

The outpouring of support from my family and friends has been quite overwhelming. Thanks to my friends/co-workers at Blessed Trinity for your generosity. It is so appreciated. Believe it or not, I look forward to getting back to work!

I ask again that you send positive thoughts to my niece, Amanda. Her surgery was postponed last week, and she is rescheduled for tomorrow.

  6. Hope you guys like Rochester! When Emily did her internship last summer she worked in St. Mary's Hospital and lived in an apartment complex on the east side of town, just north of East Hwy. 14. Kim and I stayed at the Kahler Grand Hotel downtown when we dropped her off. When we picked her up we stayed at a Holiday Inn on Hwy. 63, a few blocks south of the big Ear of Corn/Water Tower. We were surprised that, for a small town, it had two Wal-marts. We liked downtown best -- especially the old theater that's converted into a Barnes and Noble bookstore.
    Keeping you in our prayers,
    Bill & Kim

  7. Great to hear things are going well, except for the getting blown around on the highway.

    Really proud of both of you, don't know how you do it and keep such a great attitude.

    Ale and the kids got back from Chile last week, Jayme would be impressed with this; Sally is talking a blue streak and not one word of English (hurry back and translate, I am clueless).
