It really is better to give...

So excited...After James' surgery last fall, we were stuck with lots of leftover medical supplies.  They were just in boxes taking up spaces in my bathroom and closet and I was just about ready to trash it all but God had others plans.  Thanks to Him, these supplies will be going to Nicaragua this summer!
"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
Acts 20:34-36

In other news, James had treatment last week and is doing fine.  He is suffering from the skin rash we were warned about and will see an MDACC dermatologist tomorrow.  He will also have AFP checked tomorrow and we will determine if he will have another round of chemo or just continue on the antibody therapy.
In the meanwhile, I went to the doctor today and have bronchitis...yUcK!!!  I got two shots, two prescriptions, one cough syrup and three days off work to allow my voice/throat to rest.  The doc said to limit my talking...haha!  I'll let you know how that works out!  

What's going on in your world?  Thanks for love and prayers!!!
Love to all,

Relay for Life

Our team, Always Abell, dominated Relay for Life Conroe.  We walked away with awards for: #1 Fundraising Team, #1 Fundraising Individual awarded to James Abell, and 2nd place Most Spirited Team!  We started the night with many and ended this morning with few.  However, we had 15 all nighters on the track this morning at seven!  Our Always Abell team flag never left the track from 7PM until 7AM.  Great big thanks to everyone for supporting our team!!!  

Also, my sweet husband has set the bar high for next year.  As of now, we are scheduled to have 4 teams.  The event will take place the same weekend next year so mark your calendars!  We need everyone!
