Great Family

I sure do love my family. Recently Larry and I (and our grand daughter) went to Utah and visited Jonathan and Carrie and their family. Joseph and Christina and their kids also were there with us. We had so much fun. I can't even name everything we did together. We had some fun times and made great memories. A few things we did are:
We went to "This is the Place Monument, had a picnic, panned for gold, rode ponies, went to the 24th of July parade in Ogden and saw the Rapunzel float and the was a great parade. Then we went to the Golden Spike and saw the train, also to ATK and saw where they made the rockets, visited with the Parkers and had a delicious barbecue and good visiting with them.....and also went to Salt Lake Temple Square and saw the Christus statue and learned about the prophets that have lived on this earth throughout history. (And more things)
We missed being with all of our family....but today we saw the rest of them here in Arizona. Aaron and Andrea had us all over for dinner and we enjoyed homemade chile re llanos and empanadas and a complete Mexican meal. We had a great time watching Thomas' mission pictures on TV and hearing him tell about his mission to Washington State.
I'm just so grateful for a loving family and for the spouses of our children. Also, we have 14 darling grandchildren that are very loving and smart.
I have so many blessings. I love my husband very much and he loves me. What else can I ask for?

Doctor's comments

Yesterday I went to my oncologist for a 3 month checkup. He said that there is no sign of the tumors returning and that the blood work looked good. Upon leaving he pointed up to Heaven and said that he attributes my healing to God. He knows that it is a miracle and he didn't want to take the credit for it. He and Dr. Burzynski have simply been tools in God's hands. I'm so grateful for my doctors. I believe in miracles!
