Last Monday Bobby went to be fitted for his radiation mask...He sort of looked like a Blue Spiderman SuperHero...(too bad they didn't offer a cape also) and he did very well during the fitting. We know it was all the prayer coverage, because if it had been me having to do the fitting..there would have definitely needed to be drugs involved!!! We are now set up for our first Radiation treatment tomorrow. At 1:00 he will take an anti-nausea medicine, at 2:00 he will take his first chemo pill (praise God for insurance!!! the medicine was $7,000 and our co-pay was $75.00) We are very grateful to have this coverage and provision and realize that is not always the case for some and that is very heartbreaking. We are praying for a good tolerance for all the new meds & a good reaction to the radiation....Please join us in covering him every day during the next 6 weeks of treatment, as the Lord lays it upon your hearts and minds!!!
Now the really exciting news!!!! Yesterday we had some of Bobby's oldest & dearest friends (from Jr. High School) come and visit...but not only did they come to visit, bring fabulous food, but brought a most awesome surprise!!! If anyone has spent any time with Bobby you will know that he absolutely loves the Christian guitarist/singer/songwriter Phil Keaggy...known by many as one of the most fantastic gifted artist's alive!!! We have probably been to over 30 concerts over the years and have been so blessed to just witness so talented a human being, but most of all one who uses this gift for the love and glory of Jesus......Well to make a long story even longer...Brian & Bettie somehow managed to connect with Phil Keaggy...(God ordained) and arranged to have Phil Keaggy call our home yesterday....so Bobby (ok we confess we're groupies)was absolutely blown away to speak to Phil Keaggy personally, but most of all they prayed together & for each other....how cool is that!!! Now if that isn't like our God to just delight our hearts in that way...As George Anderson would say..."if that doesn't light your fire...then your woods wet!!!"
What a sweet kiss from heaven above...and what a wonderful brother in Christ...Mr. Keaggy, you are to show your love to a perfect stranger...Now isn't that just like Jesus!!!!!
Thank you again for so many words of encouragement through your cards & calls & invitations to dinner in your homes...We are so very blessed!!!!
Much Love...In His Precious Grace,
Bobby & Elaine Snow
