Thanks for being so patient with us and still continuing to follow our post. This has been a time of healing from the surgery and trying to digest all that has happened since the turn of the new year. It has been a road that no one would choose to travel, yet we have seen the goodness of the Lord each day, especially looking back and seeing how many times he has covered us in His protection before our knowledge of Bobby's brain tumor (like being on top of our tobacco barn about 4 stories high and dismantling it by himself in the Fall) Charlie Bailey what were you thinking with your blood clot and Bobby's brain tumor...that was a great team...and certainly kept all those angels busy!!!
This week was busy with appts. on Monday, Thursday and Friday...Bobby's stitches came out..and has healed nicely...then we met with our radiation oncologist & our medical oncologist (the doc who will monitor our chemo treatments)...
The diagnosis is a stage IV glioblastoma multiforte. A rapid growing agressive cancer but we were encouraged that great advances have been made in the last five years that have been able to prolong the quality & quantity of life. No cure has been found for this disease yet. So we just need to put our hand in our Saviors and walk this walk together...our next big hurdle will be tolerating the chemo and the radiation and we pray for a favorable outcome. We also pray that all these medicines will stop making Bobby feel so bad..so that he could feel more apt to do some more things and not be housebound.
How can we even begin to thank everyone for the calls, cards, meals, visits and encouragements. No one could be more blessed by the love and concern we have been shown.
We are trying to get Bobby set up with his work e-mail address here at home..& you are also welcome to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are going to try and start getting out more as His health will allow...perhaps even coming to visit YOU so don't be surprised if you find the Snow's on your doorstep one day in the near future! God Bless you for every pray you have uttered up for my Snowman....I imagine God has heard Bobby's name quite a few times over the last couple of weeks and we know that God hears and inhabits the praises of His people...May He receive all the Glory!
In His Precious Grace,
Bobby & Elaine
