A "normal" day

Tara said she will post her thoughts sometime today on this blog.  She knows you would all like to hear her thoughts and feelings; so we'll await that; but I know many of you are awaiting news today so I will post a short note.

No doctors visits today.  Tara and I had a "normal" day.  Tara and I tried to have fun shopping with Stephanie (Tara's sister-in-law) and running some errands.  We started out calling it a "sunshine" day because Tara once again felt good this morning.  Again, thank you all so very much for your prayers and your love.  They really do help!  We enjoyed shopping for a dress for Tara's wedding dinner and her head only hurt for part of the afternoon.  She is pretty consistently taking pain medicine to get through the headaches until we can get the tumor out.

Scott has quit "bishoping" and going to work (at least for today) and his full time job now is Tara and her care. Today is probably the beginning of many days of his awesome problem solving techniques being used in Tara's behalf.  He has found out much today concerning doctors and hospitals.  The trick in all of this is to get to the right surgeon; so thank you all for your prayers specifically in that regard.  He is getting some good advice from our doctor friends. Dennis Crandall was able to get us into Barrows tomorrow.  Our "team" of doctor friends are so helpful.  Jerry, Dennis, and Kent - we cannot thank you enough!!

We go to Barrows tomorrow.  That's our first step.  We are in the process of getting other opinions also; thanks to technology and friends.  This is a highly technical surgery so we are going to find the best we can get to do this for Tara.

Becky & Scott
Thanks for all your love and concern!  We love you all!
