Two Days till the 4th of July!!!

I know that may sound like a no-brainer to some of you, but Abbie & Kait have told me at least 50 times today! We're all ready around here -- we've got plenty of decorations for their bikes for the big parade on Wednesday. Stay tuned for pictures!

Mom is pretty weak right now. She tires easily. Last night the dizziness was back full force -- maybe because they can't give her as much of the steroids when it isn't through an IV? They still haven't gotten in with an oncologist in Lubbock -- they're sending her treatment protocol to two. Hopefully one of them can do it. One of the doctors she's going to talk to was Terry Pepper's oncologist and is supposed to be really good.

Please pray specifically that she finds someone in Lubbock to follow the protocol set by MD Anderson. Otherwise, she and Milton will need to come to Houston for the treatments. She just wants to be home -- not in an apartment or hotel in the Medical Center.

As for the Biggs Bunch, we spent the weekend at the Creek trying out Pa's new boat! It's huge -- about 5 feet longer than the other one. I was nervous enough about pulling Biggs on skis when it was the old boat, and I'm not too sure about this one. It's so nice, though -- much easier to clean up at the end of the weekend -- and has great cushions!!! Pa, Biggs & Abbie fished Saturday evening but didn't catch anything. Kait and I went to the beach for awhile while they were fishing. We still had fish for dinner -- at the Krusty Pelican.

When we got home yesterday, I mowed the lawn. That 1/2 acre we had in McKinney was easy-breezy, lemon-squeezy compared to this St. Augustine yard down here. The grass is so thick!! It took me two hours just to mow it. I told Biggs we had four options: get a riding lawn mower, get a yard service, build a pool or just make the backyard one giant, concrete patio. It whipped me!!

That's the news for today. Please keep praying for Mom -- specifically for her energy level and for an oncologist in Lubbock. Thanks!
