The trach is OUT! Praise the LORD! After taking care of Hunter and now Jim throughout his cancer battle...I have been blessed and changed in multiple ways. I have also experienced and learned more than I could ever have imagined. One thing I know for sure... God is Faithful and Good and Prayer is POWERFUL! Your love and prayers have sustained, encouraged, and helped our family more than you will ever know. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We love and appreciate you!
