Touched by an Angel

Hi Everyone, Dave here. I'm pleased to report I'm home and doing well. The bomb squad successfully removed my ticking time-bomb of a gall bladder yesterday (Sunday) morning, and Julie brought me home around 7pm the same day.

I've never been known for good timing, and this gall bladder attack was no exception. Julie was just coming off her worst chemo day on Friday when my agony started early Saturday morning. I realized, or rather, was reminded that I am married to an angel, as she put aside her own misery to take care of me. I knew she was weak and hanging on by a thread herself, but she sucked it up to be there for me. One of my favorite memories will always be the two of us snuggled up together in my hospital bed. I am touched by this angel, my Julie.

Thank you for your prayers and support. I am quickly on the mend and should be in good shape for Julie's last Taxol chemo on the 21st. Then we both look forward to spending the rest of 2009 getting healthy and re-growing hair!

Yay for my bro! Snuggle in and watch some good movies together. Work will still be there when you're feeling better, but now it's time to rest. I'm glad the surgery is done and you're on the mend. -Ris

Terrible timing for your gall bladder to act up---I'm so glad you are doing better and I'm praying for Julie

Hi Julie and Davey,
Late comment here, but my puter crashed and my hard drive froze up! Just wanted to say your Christmas letter was delightful reading. I followed your protocol and snuggled up with a cup of tea to read it. Raspberry green tea! But what is this about a coffee shop and Italy?! Sounds great tho!

Dave & Julie, I am so glad to hear that you are on the mend now. I heard at church that you had had your surgery that morning, much to my surprise! If rough times draw you closer, you all are going to be in the same body before long. Or maybe that's what it means to "be one", huh? God be with you as you heal. Sara
