10 Years

Ten years ago, yesterday, July 11, 1998, Jeff and I were married. It seems so long ago, and yet like it was just yesterday. It was a sunny, hot day in South Dakota. We spent the day with 200 of our closest friends and family. We are planning a trip to Cabo in September to celebrate. Thank you to all of our friends and family for sticking with us! Here's to 50 more years (at least!)

You might be wondering how Jeff and I spent our anniversary... he spent it in Pennsylvania, and me here in Kansas City with Joshie! Not ideal, but I scored some beautiful daisies out of the whole thing! Jeff will be back tomorrow, and we will spend the day doing t-ball stuff, and all that entails!

Jeff and I were both so lucky as to have the flu last weekend, and Josh had Summer Penile Syndrome this week... that was fun! Poor kid! In case you don't know what that is, it is severe chigger bites all over the little boy parts. Apparently very common in KC... who knew? Moral of the story, don't let your kid sit in the grass!

On a positive note, Sam appears to be doing well after his Bone Marrow Transplant. You can check out his caringbridge page by clicking the link on the right side of the blog. Have a great week!

Pray for Sam and Sarah!

Hello to anyone who is reading this post. Please pray for Sam Radke (his mom is Jeff's cousin). He had a bone marrow transplant last night/this morning. Pray that the side effects aren't too much for his little body to handle. Pray that the donor marrow grabs hold, and he is filled with healthy cells.

Pray for Josh's friend Sarah Macy. She has Wilm's Tumor (kidney cancer). She has been in the hospital for over a week fighting off an infection. She has been fever free for 24 hours, so hopefully she either did, or will go home today. Josh misses you, Sarah!
