      It's a New Year, bringing new memories, new challenges and new beginnings.  Since our last update Jeff and his family took a wonderful trip to Mexico.  Staying in the Riviera Maya area in an all-inclusive hotel for a week.  Even Jeff's niece and nephew were able to join them.  It truly was a blessing for everyone to be there and soo many memories were created that will last forever!  Everyday we were able to enjoy special family time whether we sat at the pool or went shopping in town!

     Upon returning to "The States" we jumped back into kicking-cancer's-butt mode!  Jeff and his Mom were in Ann Arbor for 3 weeks, coming home on the weekends.  Jeff underwent radiation daily for about a half an hour.  He was not doing his strong chemo during this time, just a once a week visit in Muskegon.  They stayed in an almost apartment like room with their own kitchen.  The room was near the mall so they did not get too bored ;)

     On his last day of radiation, he had an appointment with Dr. Mommoser.  He was not himself and the Doctor had presumed he was having seizures.  They sent him to the hospital, he then stayed an extra few days to allow the doctors to adjust his medications.  The scans they took showed nothing new, therefore they knew they just had to update his meds.  Once his medications were right and the seizures had stopped for a period of time, he was able to return home.  This was all just before Christmas.

     We had a wonderful Christmas!  Jeff has taken up flying toy helicopters, which he really enjoys.  He bought his Dad one for Christmas and his brother-in-law, Justin, went out and got himself a couple to join.  It is hard to believe 2013 is already here!  We are believing this will be the year Jeff will become Cancer-free, go into remission!  There is power in numbers, we ask that you believe in Jeff's healing with us!

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."  Mark 11:24       
     Tomorrow, Monday January 14, Jeff has an MRI scheduled at UofM.  This is the first scan since his radiation ended.  He had to wait at least a month since his last appointment to allow for any swelling to go down.  We should have the results of those scans by afternoon.  Those scans WILL show that the radiation has worked and the tumor has died.  This is what we are believing!  Pray with us that this will be the truth!
"If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you."  John 15:7   
     When we find out the results, I will again update!  Thank you for all of your support and prayers!
