Half –way Through


The Lord was gracious to us again…..My white cell count went up from .3 on Monday to 1.4 by Friday. I reminded my nurses that people were praying….. So right after treatment we left for New York which took 10 hours. My brother Tom and Angela’s wedding was wonderful, I am so glad I could go. It was very hard and a very good at the same time if that makes any sense. My doctor delayed my Monday treatment to Wednesday so we got to stay a few extra days. Monday our family and Eds family took a train to the city. We arrived at Grand Central Station and walked up Broadway to Times Square. Next we went to Central Park where I took a rest and the group went on the Carousel. By the afternoon we were all getting tired so the guys bargained down a limo driver to drive us around to see the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero and take us back to the train station. It was a blast and totally unbelievable, we saw everything we wanted in one day. God is so good.

This Wednesday I have a short treatment which marks half-way. It is taking longer to feel good this time around but that’s expected. I do have good days mingled in with the not good ones. Thanks so much for the help and support, the meals etc that just keep coming…makes those days more bearable. I go back Friday to see my oncologist and get the results from the CT scan I had last Friday.

I(God) will be still, and I (God) will behold in my dwelling place. Isa 18:4

“His stillness is not acquiescence, His silence is not consent…He is not unobservant...He is beholding all things…He has his finger on thy pulse, keenly sensitive to all its fluctuations…But He is only waiting the precise moment when He can interpose most effectively” DDC

Please continue to pray for us….that as we go through each day we would be more and more confident and absolutely sure that the Lord has everything in control, is not worried or anxious etc. but is working everything for our good and His glory!!!!

In His Hands,


  1. Love the photos and so glad that you enjoyed the wedding!
    Still praying for you - let us know if you need anything!

  2. Ephesions 3:16-19
    "That He would grant you according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Holy Spirit in the inner man; so that Christ may dwell in your heart(s) through faith and that you, being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend (with the the saints) what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to the fullness of God!" PHEW!!
    How amazing! We pray that all for you Miriam and Nandor and your family too!
    God possesses infinite knowledge and awareness which is uniquely His! At all times, even in the midst of any type of suffering, I can realize that He knows, loves, watches, understands and more than that HE HAS A PURPOSE!.
    We're praying for you as you continue to Trust Him!

    Love Diane & Tim Landgraff
