First Full Day

Today we registered at the Proton Center and had our first meeting with Dr. Mahajan and her team. Everyone was great and we Jeremy and I know we are at the right place, and what a large place it is...the medical center is like a small city and there are at least 6 MD Anderson locations in the loop.

Cash has a CT Scan tomorrow, MRI Wednesday, and a trial run through the proton machine on Thursday. Each procedure requires anesthesia so he can't eat or drink anything 6 hours before which makes it tough on the little guy, but he's strong and continues to amaze me.

We were visited and blessed today by two or our new Houston families, the Middlebrook's and the Nelson's. Even though we are a long ways from home, we already feel like the people we've met make this 'home-like' and God continues to put wonderful people in our path.

So far so good - the apartment wasn't ready at 8 when we arrived (Cash was up at 5 Seattle time) so we drove around getting knowledge of the main streets, etc. The weather is way different than Seattle - today hit 90 and it's supposed to be hot for a while.

Cash will officially start proton treatment next week - the proton center is something to behold and after talking with many people today, we are confident it is going to make hay with Cash's tumor, to use a farming metaphor. We are thankful to God for His provisions and I'm so glad there are Christians all around the world, and especially here in Houston.

Thank you for your support and continue to pray for Cash and Wendi, due very very soon...:)


  1. We're praying for Cash that the proton is his miracle. For Uncle Manuel, we know it was his!!! God has put you in the right place.
    With prayers and love,
    Tia Margie and Uncle Manuel

  2. Amen Jack -- we love you and your family dearly. We also know that God is a loving and wonderful God -- thank you for continuing to be such an inspiration to all of us. Can't wait to hear about Cash's tumor being turned into "hay." After all -- God parted the Red Sea and he can certainly make hay out of Cash's tumor!

  3. Jack, please know that you are constantly in our thoughts and prayers! Your faith is absolutly amazing to all of us! Cash is in the best place possible and they will do the best that they can do for him I'm sure. Wendi, you stay strong and healthy for that new little one! He needs you to be! We all love you guys, take care!
    Chris and family

  4. We are glad to hear the first day went well...we will continue to pray that Cash gets the treatment that he needs & also that you time in Texas goes well. Prayers for Wendi & the new baby arriving soon :)

  5. Jack!!!
    Have you got to see the proton machine yet?!!!
    It's pretty amazing and enormous!!!! I think of CASH on a pod, in that ingredible machine!! Almost frightening?!!!! But, God knows CASH is ingredible and amazing, too. So, with the help and grace of God, all will be good! We love you and pray for strength.
