Just a quick update on our lives...

The reason you haven't seen many posts lately is because (thankfully) there's not much to report.

Harv has continued to respond to the chemo with very few side effects. As amazing as it is, the biggest problem is fatigue. And, sometimes he has difficulty sleeping at night (which has also become a problem for me.) He takes naps every day and in the more "extreme" times, finds it a challenge to do much throughout the day. Even mental things are tiring.

Yesterday and the day before, he took two pretty good walks. He walks more slowly and with less energy than before he got sick, but he still got out there. And, I'm pretty sure he'd tell you it felt good be active.

Last weekend we had some photographers come to the house to do family photos. Harv had made that arrangement as one of our Christmas gift "dates."  We moved it up some so that we could make sure he was feeling good for that. We had fun with some silly poses and I think we ended up with some good photos. I'll try to post some of them when we get 'em back.

Last night, he took me out to a very nice local Italian restaurant for Valentine's dinner. We ate too much, but had a nice evening. (No photos to share.)

Tomorrow another friend of his from work is coming for a visit. (Gotta clean the house!)

People are GOOD.

He goes back to the doctor on Tuesday the 21st for round 3 of the chemo. We'll find out soon when his next CT scan will be. We're anxious to see how it has changed from December.

Thank you all for your continued concern and prayers and practical ways of making our lives easier.

We love you.

P.S. Reminder: I keep updating the "thank you" list (February 6th blog entry) as people CONTINUE to bless us. Check it out.  ♥
