What a couple of weeks!

It has been a crazy couple of weeks to say the least. Now, thanks to all of you and your thoughts and prayers, I am on my way to better health. I am working every angle of this, fighting like I know how. I'm an athlete and a very stubborn athlete at that. This Lymphoma is not going to take me down. I like to win and that's what I plan on doing. I am having a great weekend. I was able to go to Hunter's basketball game yesterday. That was a thrill. He played so good. He has been practicing every day this week for atleast 2 hours a day. Lay ups, jump shots, even trick shots he has been practicing hard and it really paid off. He made about 20 points and 4 fast break lay ups where he looked like a pro. The coach pulled him in the fouth quarter because she didn't want him to run up the score. He also balanced his scoring with great passes and even passed it to a girl that was wide open so that she could make a basket. He was awesome and it was fun to watch.

I wasn't able to get video of the fast breaks because they happened so fast but these were good videos. Then in the afternoon we went for a boat ride and a little fishing. Landon had his new fishing pole (fishing poo as he calls it). The weather was absolutely beautiful. It was calming, relaxing, and just the perfect place to be recovering. I loved it.




Thank you again. Keep all the prayers, well wishes, crossed fingers, everything coming. I will keep working on things from my end. Love you all!

Heather,

It's so good to see you enjoying the good outdoors the way you love to! I have total faith in you (I hope you know that). I know that you can do anything that you put your mind to. I'm so happy all is going well. These last two weeks have been a good thing - as hard as they have been.

Hunter is such an awesome athlete. It's been fun to see him get so much enjoyment out of the same things you and Dave like to do!

Turn your good weekend into a good month, then a good year!

Luv Les

Hey Heather,

I don't know if you remember me but you used to coach me (Heather Harrington) when I was younger and other kids in my cul-de-sac (Homeview Ct.) For some reason I was thinking about you today and decided to try to track you down online. I don't know if you have facebook but I was able to find your blog! It is so fun to see your kids! Let me know how you're doing.
