May 2 in Clinton

I haven't written in a week so I thought I would bring everyone "up to speed" on how things are going with Matthew.

Matthew continued to have a wonderful week last week - getting out in the beautiful weather, spending time with friends, eating better and going to some church activities. Matthew has not felt very well the last few days but at least he and his Dad got to go to the movies last night. They've been anxious to see "Ironman" and both really liked it.

Matthew went to his local oncologist (Dr. Dobbs) on Wednesday for bloodwork needed for his New York doctor (Dr. Wexler) for the new medication that he is on. All of his counts were good and he had gained some weight -- really good news! We go back for the same checks every two weeks until we return to New York.

Our return trip to New York is scheduled for June 2nd. The scans will be on June 3rd and hopefully we'll get results the next day.

We certainly serve an amazing God and continue to discover the immense ways He blesses our lives. Thanks to each of you for being a BIG part of those blessings.
Love, Nancy

Nancy: Praise God, outloud and on purpose!!! We do learn to take one day at a time and that prevents some feelings of being overwhelmed. Since I can't think of anything physically I can help you with, I would like to offer you a complete line of cosmetics to get you through this time without cost on those items. If you are willing to give Mary Kay a try, I will be happy to provide them at no cost to you. Just let me know and we will get right on it!! Enjoy a beautiful Lord's Day and it was so good seeing you at Walgreens the other day.

I am so glad that you are enjoying the nice Spring weather and feeling like eating. I pray for you every day and most days several times a day. Our God is an awesome God and I praise Him for protecting, healing and keeping you in His loving arms. I love you Matt!

Your love O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O Lord,you preserve both man and beast. How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:6-7

Praise God that He is with us always! I'm keeping you in my constant prayers and look forward to a good report on Wednesday. Love you all The Fays,
