a quick personal note...

Well, we are now in Texas, and we were only delayed a week due to crazy circumstances... the twins decided to come 10 weeks early! By God's divine grace they are healthy and stable and were medivaced from Washington to Texas so we could all be together. I have had the most amazing support from the most amazing people and my thank you list is growing by the hour!

2 weeks before we were due to fly out I found out I have breast cancer. To make this short my awesome OB felt a lump and got me into an ultrasound and then a mammogram within days, I had a biopsy, got the results and had a lumpectomy and lymphnodal section all in one week, still pregnant. That was the 14th, the stress from packing up the house and the surgery induced early labor and I had the twins via cesarean on the 19th. Our house was packed and we were living in the base hotel, waiting to fly out on the 21st.

My awesome friend Sue Ho put my family, including my parents, up in her house for a week while she was in Idaho (thank you!). What a relief it was to be in a house and not squished in a hotel room for that long!

The twins were born amazingly healthy and already look like babies instead of little potatoes, Lucy was born at 3:44 am at 3 pounds 1 oz and Sarah was born at 3:46 am at 3 pounds 4 oz.

I can't thank enough all who have helped us and who are still helping as the twins are in the NICU and I get set up with chemotherapy, our household goods will be delivered on Monday.... what day, or month is it? I fell as if I've slipped into a black hole, this all happened literally in less than 3 weeks!

I will continue to post great stuff that I come across, but as you can guess it just may be less often.

God bless and believe in the power of prayer!
