Sabbath evening -mellow peaceful day

Dear Friends and Family,

Its about 10:30 on Sabbath evening. Nan is resting and watching the food channel, right now its about Famous Amos cookies. I just got back from watching Jason coach a junior varsity team for MBA. Tonight they won big. Jason has an interesting style and the kids seem to respond well to his leadership, parents too. It was a blast to watch him at work. Jo's brother Clayton ran the post at the sideline showing the down line, probably has a name which I don't know. Jo was there also cheering the team from her school. Only problem, I went out dressed in shorts and sports shirt but the night had turned cold. By the time I realized I was cold I was down to the field so I just stayed and froze. On the way back Jo took mercy on me and bought a hot chocolate, it was a life saver. Now I'm back with Nan and we are both sipping hot drinks, hers is herb tea and mine is mocha.

We have had a really nice day and Nan has gotten a lot of rest. Now we are winding down and getting ready for bed. I started her TPN around 8:30 getting her started on her next round of nutrition and hydration. She is doing OK but continues to be sort of low energy and resting up this evening. Right now she is begging or asking for a foot rub, thanks a lot Jan, you have created a hard role to follow.

We will sleep till we wake up tomorrow, then I'll go see a house in Santa Cruz that needs me to see it as owner of the company, come back here and then drive home in the afternoon. This time we will get to see Irene and Nan can make an inspection of that wonderful new kitchen. On monday I will be seeing several properties and I sure hope we can find someone to visit Nan during the afternoon. If you can come please let us know.

We are thankful for our many blessings this evening. Having wonderful children like Nikki and Steve, Jason and Jo is the biggest blessing and Keanna is such a wonderful addition as well. Well I am being paged to run some feet so I'll sign off now.

Please keep Nan in your prayers this evening, we need this leaking to stop sooner than later and I am begging God for that miracle.

Sending our love,

Tim and Nan

    Good Morning! It's another beautiful fall day in NC. The leaves are beginning to fade and fall, so Roger will be out there with his leaf blowers again soon. Today I have 2 cottages to clean and Roger will be working on his remodeling job that he started before his heart attack. It is getting done slowly but surely.

    It sounds like you have had a wonderful week end with your kids. Isn't it fun to watch our kids at work? We don't get to do that often enough. This is who they have become. How nice that you are able to be at Jason's as you do your Santa Cruz appraisal. Nan gets an outing and you get your work done without worrying about her. She is certainly in good hands.

    Our prayers continue for Nan for the leak to stop, more strength, less nausea and pain and wisdom for the doctors. Our prayer for Tim is for peace, strength, sustained health, enough appraisals to keep afloat with the checks coming in and for time to relax now and then.

    We might be out in a week or so. We just discovered that we have some tickets that must be used before Nov. 20! We hope to see you then.

    We love you both and keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Love ~ Carol

    Our love, thoughts and prayers sent your way. There is not a day we don't think about and pray for you guys and we catch up on your blogs every few days, -so nice that we can just pop over here and get an update. Herb really enjoyed his chat with Nan last week! Thank you Nan!

    Herb stopped his Sutent for the 30 day washout required prior to starting the new trial in Vegas. We pray all the paperwork will go as planned before the IRB and such, and that the trial will start as they anticipate about the time Herb is through with his Sutent washout. We hope this new drug will be the blockbuster they think it might. You just keep fighting and getting better and better Nanner and soon we'll be meeting in Vegas again! A day at a time, You and Herb will beat this and continue to pave the way for other gisters! You both are truly inspirational brave warriors.

    Nan, -Take it easy on Tim now, don't make him rub those foot more than 30 minutes, 5 times a day. LOL
    Ohhh you might also consider placing this nifty little product on your Xmas list..... -Herb loves his and uses it daily. The Thumper Mini Pro II Massager

    Big CyberHug Nanner, (and a back and cyber foot rub too)

    Our hearts, thoughts and prayers your way. Love you guys,
