Scans tomorrow

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.

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