such a good life!

first of all i want to share good news...we heard back from mark's test at national jewish, and i all looks good!! we feel like we can finally breath, knowing that mark's sarcoidosis has not spread to any other organs except his lungs. we are praying that is stays that way! we will go back in early september for more testing. they will repeat his ct scan of his lungs to see how they look. we continue to pray that mark will go in remission soon! if he is not feeling a lot better by the next appt, we will talk about doing some chemo to help knock out his immune system....we are hoping to not need this but feel we are ready to do anything to help him get into remission asap!
thank you for all the support and love through all this testing. it was a long couple days and we feel so blessed to have gotten such good results.
one good thing about sarcoid is that we, per doctors order, have to take it easy! we now are forced to stay home a lot more to help mark get more rest. it has been such a blessing. we often times get so caught up in the business of life and don't take time to get really quality time as a family. well that is not the case anymore! we get a lot of nights home just hanging out and being together! I LOVE IT!
here is a couple pictures of some of my favorite moments of my life! i am so lucky to have such an amazing husband. he loves me and the girls so deeply. i love just being with him no matter what we do. i also have the 2 most amazing girls! they bring me such a joy! i am one lucky mama!
this sweet girl just loves to pick flowers for me!
fun times just hanging in the back yard!

the loves of my life!

she is so much fun!
how cute is she?

Beautiful pictures and your daughters are so lovely. Family time is precious.

At my Churches' Saturday night vespers in the prayers for others, you and Mark are mentioned by name.
