Sara had round 3 of chemo last week and is doing well. The doctors told us that the effects of the chemo would be cumulative and this round has made her more tired than the others.

Round 3 of Chemo

As soon as we got settled into our house, we started having visitors. The Statons and the Briggs are some of our best friends from our time spent in Asia. We were stationed with the Statons in Korea and the Briggs in Japan.

We spent the holiday weekend at the lake house and had a great time with family and friends. Sara and I were shocked on Friday afternoon when one of our best friends from pilot training walked through the gate into the backyard. We were clueless that my mom had been organizing a little reunion. Hille called a few weeks ago and told my mom that he and his girlfriend, Julia, were coming to Texas (from Germany) and wanted to surprise us. We had a great time with them and are so thankful for their visit.

Sara had an appointment with the OB the day after her last chemo. They did a growth scan on Chloe and she seems to be doing well. She is growing on schedule and Sara's belly is getting bigger every week.

Thanks for checking on us. Sorry for the delay between updates...we have not had internet for the past few weeks.

Ooooh, I knew Sara would be beautiful bald--she radiates beauty from inside! Anyways, I love the name Chloe! Juliana has a cousin named Chloe and it is super cute to hear a little person say that name! Glad she is thriving!
