Last Full Week Starts Tomorrow

I can't believe how quickly the past 5+ weeks have gone.  We are already down to 6 more days of proton therapy for Cash.  Which means that next weekend will be our last in Houston - it's definitely bittersweet - Cash will be done with radiation for good (it's a once-in-a-lifetime event) and we've made great friends down here.  Today my mom and I went to the Middlebrook's church, Impact Houston ( and very much enjoyed the fellowship with Charlie, Mollie, and the folks we met.

It seems like I haven't had much time to blog lately but I wanted to continue to thank God for Cash's progress.  Every day we witness him doing things he used to do 'pre-tumor' (whenever that was) and we're enjoying spending each moment with him and the family.  The boys are amazing with Kingston, they continue to kiss him and rub his head, although Cash is working on what it means to be 'gentle'...:-)  We attempted to photograph the future 'band' as I'm referring to them tonight - here are a few photos:

This past week we went to Kemah and it was the first time taking all of our boys out - it took at least 45 minutes to drive the first 15 miles and it wasn't because there was traffic (McDonald's attempt, bathroom, feeding, and finally a Dairy Queen disaster (did you know they sell Chicken Fried Steak burgers down here?  I accidentally found that out)).  But we made it and we had a great time:

I forgot to post earlier this week, when it was time for proton treatment Cash went to his favorite nurse, Stephanie, then when they got to the room he went to Cynthia, his favorite anesthetist:

We are thankful to God for this opportunity and He has continued to keep Cash safe and protect us when we are so far away from our family.  Thank you for your continued prayers and have a blessed week!!!

    You are and have been in our thoughts and many prayers so often, may God bless Cash with healing and all the family with courage and His great love thru difficult times.

  5. I am so happy to hear Cash is doing so good and is almost done with the proton treatment. I thought about him after we left and took a chance to search "Cash of Hope"! I was very pleased to see his little sweet face pop up on your site. I hope the rest of the family is doing well and I am sorry I didn't get to say good-bye to you all on Autumn's last day. I will keep all of you in my prayers. God Bless.
