‎ Praise the Lord! For he has heard my cry for mercy. 7 The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalms 28:6-7 (NLT)

 After the long drive from Houston with Kristi sleeping in the back seat, we visited the hospital to meet our new addition to the family:  Caden Alexander Preston!  I had to snap this picture on my phone as I saw my Mom holding our new life and my Dad connecting this new life to our restored life!  Kristi had grieved missing this occasion with Katy, and here she is listening with joy to John and Katy tell the story of Caden's birth!

Katy was given flowers in blue and purple:  Blue for having a boy and Purple .....Kristi's color for fighting cancer! 
Two happy and relieved Children!  Aunt Amy, who had been keeping Isaiah and Alyssa, told Isaiah she was running by his house to pick up his bike.  Instead of getting his bike, he found his parents home!!!  The walked in looking very confused and then hugged and held onto Billy and Kristi and smiled from ear to ear.  Thank you God for giving Kristi extended life to raise these sweet children and love her husband!  

Many have been asking about "what's next".  As mentioned before, they told us they dissected the initial pathology for 21/2 hours the day of the surgery and were shocked to find no invasive cancer.  At this point, they took a larger biopsy and sent it for more detailed pathology.  We will hear these results by next week.  The Dr. continued to say there were no signs of invasive cancer which is what they thought was there and would require the radical surgery.  They only found a minuscule spot of a-typical cell cancer and that was removed. They had the radiologist insert radiation seeds surrounding the biopsy spot in the case that cancer showed up and they could treat it with radiation.  Kristi would like people to continue to pray for wisdom for her to know what to do so she does not continue to grow these a-typical cancer cells.  She knows she will certainly be juicing and treating her body with an organic diet.  For those local people that have been offering to help, this requires lots of special shopping and cutting up veggies and fruits and a special soup preparation.  So...starting next week you could start helping in this way, or by preparing some freezer casseroles for the family meals so Kristi could spend her time keeping up with her special diet.

Kristi has been in pain, but is growing stronger and will take back this blog very soon! After all, this blog is really the start of a great book she needs to write!! : )
