From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. John 1:16

so that we will not grow weary and lose heart...

God has seen fit to to allow Dad's PET Scan to be approved by his insurance and to get it done quickly.  As an added bonus, He's allowed this to take place on a day when Doug does not have to work and is able to take us.  Since there is a snowstorm pending, this is a huge blessing to me, my Mom and my Dad as we won't have to worry about how to get there, driving on snowy roads, getting up or down their driveway, etc...  Dad's scan is tomorrow (Friday) at 9am in Lancaster.  It will take about 1 1/2 hours.  I'm not sure when we will have the results.  Brennan and Landis will stay overnight there tonight so that they can get up early and get the porch/walk shoveled and salted before we get there.  Please pray for our safety, that Dad wouldn't have trouble getting to/into the car, and that our being there would be a blessing to him.  Praise God for his mercy in letting things happen so quickly with regards to appointments, tests, etc.  I'm not good, at all, at waiting...patience is not my strong suit.

We're still on schedule for a bone marrow biopsy on Monday at 8am. 

We know that there are many prayers being sent up for us.  We would not have the peace that we do if that were not so.  We know that there is along road ahead of us but we know that the Father will walk with us and we know that you will, too. 

Hebrews 12:1-3  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
