Also, we received the okay for treatment to wait until 11 August to begin.
We will hear sometime this coming week when Ford will have the port inserted and what stage the cancer is in and what our schedule will be.
So for now, we will enjoy the weekend and week to come, getting things done that need to be done before we begin to focus once again on whatever it takes to fight this battle with Ford's cancer.
Ford was able to go to the Temple for his weekly assignment for at least a couple of hours. He has a meeting early tomorrow morning. Oh! how he loves working in the Temple and associating with the workers. We appreciate the allowances that have been made to allow him to continue doing what he can, when he can. Thank you, Brother H., for your care and kindness.
We have both enjoyed being able to attend Church on Sunday. The association with our Ward family has been wonderful. We have received strength from the messages and lessons. We are sorrowful that four of our neighbors have passed away in the past two or three weeks, but are grateful for the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. Each one has lived a good life and have been unique in their interests and accomplishments. They have done exceptional things and touched many people's lives. All of them have wonderful families. We pray that those left behind will feel loved and comforted and blessed with what they need at this time.
"No matter how bleak the chapter of our lives may look today, because of the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we may hope and be assured that the ending of the book of our lives will exceed our grandest expectations. 'Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. ' "
