Today we are thankful that Derrik's grandparents both seem to be well on their way to recovery. I opted not to put anything on here recently involving their health because it was kind of hard to follow. I was getting most of the info second hand from Derrik and really only understood the basics.

Derrik grandpa, Papa, has been home from his stay in the hospital and it seems like his heart is going to keep hanging in there :) We are forever thankful for this!!!

Nini has made it through her three rounds of chemo and just yesterday had her surgery to remove the rest of her cancer. She responded great to the chemo, and, from what Derrik says, the doctors seem to think they got all the cancer. I am sure there is more testing and check-ups to be done, and I think Derrik said even one more round of chemo to make sure it is completely gone! Derrik said he talked to Nini today from the hospital and that she sounded good. In some pain as to be expected, but we are so glad the surgery is over with.

I am sure this road to recovery is far from over, but we are glad the biggest hurdles seem to be over with!

And now.... pictures of Ryder...

I think it's time for Ryder to start getting his own protein shake on the way home from the gym because this Momma doesn't get much of it anymore!

Also I'll keep your family in my prayers. Sounds like they are both battling some serious issues and the more prayers the better =)
