Brad Update




Just wanted to let everyone know that Brad started radiation on Monday. He had been on the fence about doing it. When the doctors told him all the side effects that could come from him doing this we were really unsure about him going through with this. I know some of you may think that this is crazy and I would have thought the same thing if it wasn't my husband going through this right now. Well anyway we have both prayed for God to just give us a sign as to what he should do. If he should just move forward with radiation or if he should skip it since his PET Scan was clear. I won't go into the whole story but Brad got his answer at work on Friday from a lady in is office whose husband had recently gone through the same type of cancer. Brad said that he felt like she was placed in his office that day for a reason and so he decided to go ahead with the radiation. He is suppose to have 5 weeks but they said they may only do 3 and a half. Please keep him in your prayer over the next few weeks as he goes through these treatments.
(The pictures above were taken on Saturday. I just so happened to look out the window to see the brightest rainbow I have ever seen! I went out side to take some pictures of it and realized that we could see the entire bow from out back yard and that it was a double rainbow! What a beautiful picture that the Lord painted that day!)

Hey Girl! I will keep Brad in my prayers. I hope he continues to stay strong.
We saw the same rainbow on Saturday. We went to the movies in Benton-I know I should of called you so we could get our buckets, but I don't have your number. It was an amazing rainbow or I guess I should say rainbows.
