A Note from Kirk:
Today, Sarah’s mom took her to get her nails and toes done. Sarah really needed the relaxing time when she could try to put the worries of Monday out of her head. I am so grateful to have Barb help me through this time because she is caring for Sarah as a mother would but also knows all the intimate details of how Sarah is feeling right now. Barb goes above and beyond expectations and she knows exactly what to do in times of turmoil…duh…she is a nurse. She has been such a blessing in our journey with cancer because of her knowledge, generosity, laughter and her willingness to answer phone calls in the middle of the night just for a medication question. She has a love for her daughter that I will never know until I have my own kids. Both Sarah and I have great parents to rely on and we will definitely need them in the weeks and months ahead. We know that we have no reason to be afraid of being in need with our family surrounding us.
Please continue to keep my wife in your prayers as the pressure is building inside of her. I certainly hope that the lead-up to surgery will be worse than what comes after. Please pray that Sarah will feel God’s arms around her comforting her. I also wanted to thank all of you for responding to my plea and flooding Sarah with comments of encouragement and love! Keep it coming………
