All Week 2-19-06

This past week Andrea went to MD Anderson and had an MRI of her abdomen on Wednesday. We have not heard the test results yet, but we will keep you all posted. The only other doctor she saw this week was the eye doctor. Even though her vision is extremely blurry she is gaining more central vision with her right eye instead of just peripheral. She ordered one of her wigs on Tuesday and she picked it up Thursday.

The day before Andrea got sick and went the hospital, we picked out a ring for our engagement. While she was sick I went and bought the ring so I could give it to her when she felt better. I expected to give it to her much sooner, but she was feeling horrible and couldn't see all that good. On Valentines day this week I decided the time had come and I gave her the ring that she picked out months ago.

On Saturday night we had a wedding shower (really just a party) for one of my best friends and his bride to be (Dustin Duhon and Cheryl Sparks). Lupe's Tortillas Mexican restaurant catered the party and we had about 50 guests. Andrea was able to see many familiar faces and chatted all night long. She also got wear her new wig and makeup (courtesy of Perry) for the first time.

We don't know what our schedule looks like this coming week, but we will keep you all informed. Please continue your prayers for Andrea's eyes and tummy. God Bless and goodbye.

Andrea-it was wonderful to see you in such great spirits. Patrick said it best when he said that it was your smile that made you beautiful. Keep smiling! Psalm 146:8 "He gives sight to the blind, he lifts up the fallen. Gold loves good people." We will continue to pray for God to lift you up and restore your sight!
Love, Patrick and Andrea

Hi Andrea and Jay -- as always I look forward to the updates. I truly enjoyed the message from your dad, Andrea.

I am praying for your eyes and everything else. I just feel that if your eyes are continuing to get better, then they will be just fine.

I am so happy about your engagement. Please continue to keep us posted.
