DC in January

I am not in DC but my mom and dad are. Dad has had cancer for a couple of years and is on a drug trial with the National Health Institute in DC. He has been going back to DC nearly every month for two years. They have been great and his cancer numbers have been good. But his numbers have really gone up this month and they have to change his treatment. This was not totally unexpected... but it still stinks.

Meanwhile I am house sitting and dog sitting in Alaska where the temps have dipped below zero. Not the most fun place to be in January... physically or emotionally.

You are all in my prayers, dear friend. We've had a record-setting Jan here in MN thus far. It looks like we'll make it through the whole month without going below 0. Praise the Lord!

Yeah I can relate.

For me, the cold was not as difficult in Alaska as the darkness was. And it is still dark here on the drive home most of the time.

Never fear though...soon sunlight will be here.

But then taxes come. Darn taxes!

I'm so jealous of your trip. I just keep trying to not think about it. But, no worries since I soon may be going there myself! hooray!

You know that I am praying for your dad and family...not such good times, but HE knows and is the Master Physician. Praying for peace as they find out more and see what to do next! Also peace that the dogs "lovin'" doesn't smother you!

Hey Carrie,

I'm sorry to hear your Dad's numbers are up. I'll be praying for wisdom for the doctors and your folks! Can't wait for you and Lorrie to come. We think it's pretty cold here, but maybe that's because we are walking around in it all the time. It does stay light until after 5pm now, so we are really happy! See ya! Kim
