On a much more minor note, Chloe's heading for her quarterly scans tomorrow. Your prayers are always appreciated.

Our hearts are with the Emerson family in the passing of their beloved Oliver yesterday. Oliver was diagnosed about a year before Chloe, but ended up with a more difficult road than the one we traveled. Knowing Derek and Mary Ann from both Crossroad Chapel and Mary Ann and Oliver's participation in the East K-7 Garden Club, they were welcoming, familiar faces who happened to be at the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital when Chloe underwent her first surgery and joined us for a meal. Derek's words in Oliver's CarePage updates continually inspired us to look at the bigger picture of faith in the midst of suffering. Should our family's journey with childhood cancer ever take a turn for the worse, I hope and pray we will walk it with as much faith, love, hope, and grace as the Emerson family.
