Weekend before surgery

Well, it has been a fun weekend. Tyler and I traveled to Denton with the dogs to spend the weekend with Sue and Courtney. It stormed most of the day, but we did find some time to let Max (Sue and Courtney's Lab) swim in the pool. The guys sat out back and enjoyed some Honduran cigars they had brought back from our recent trip to Honduras. We had an amazing dinner that Tyler cooked, and enjoyed some great wine. It was Courtney's first time to drink wine since December! This morning the guys started their morning off with Sue cooking breakfast, the rain had subsided and of course, car cleaning time! It always amazes Sue and I how much time they can spend cleaning cars. They washed the Porsche, in anticipation of it sitting in the garage for awhile while they were gone. Tyler and Courtney have headed off to Best Buy to find some last minute gadgets for the hospital stay. They have wired up a sling box that will broadcast TV over the internet from their house. They will be able to pick it up at MD Anderson. Courtney didn't want to miss the Formula 1 races while they were there, and MD Anderson doesn't have Speed Channel! Very important.
We are about to have lunch and watch the Mavs game. Its been a nice relaxing weekend, this week will be hectic, getting to Houston, meeting all the surgeons/anesthesiologists, surgery on Thursday, recovery. Thank you all for all your emails, calls, and comments. We have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have viewed the blog, and are praying for Courtney. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Sue had a poem on their fridge, that really hit home for all of us...

Cancer is so limited...

It cannot cripple love - It cannot shatter hope-
It cannot corrode faith- It cannot destroy peace-
It cannot kill friendships- It cannot suppress memories-
It cannot silence courage- It cannot invade the soul-
It cannot steal eternal life- It cannot conquer the spirit!
