Ken passed with flying colors ---- I just tell people "Stanford says he's smart" :)
Got put on "hold" for two months .... waiting for a follow-up requested by the DRs...... I guess everybody was on vacation!!!
Had a great appointment on September 22 & got a call last Friday to let us know that WE HAVE A CONFIRMED SURGERY DATE OF:
NOVEMBER 13th ----- YAHOOOOOO!!!
(yes, it's FRIDAY the 13th --- but we think it's the perfect date, since Ken was BORN on Friday the 13th ---- a great day, in our book!
We'll need your prayers more than ever ...... we'll be traveling to Stanford (3 hrs) every week in the month of November - what with Pre-op/2 Surgeries/Post-Op...... anybody like to drive?!?!?!?
Ken's excited ....... real excited ........
WE EVEN FOUND HIS handprint in our
own backyard .... somewhere close to Kansas!!
They were MORE than just 'OK'.....
these high-schoolers are amazing!
and we have a tender spot in our hearts for them, having worked along side many of them at different events in the past few years
Staci Johnson gave a new dimension to the role of Miss Hannigan
We even re-visited 'Grease' ........
I think the guy in the poster looked remarkably similar to Ken ....
or was that the girl?
Move over "T-Birds" ....
Shannon, Dahni, Kaylee
Jeff & Kaylee took us on a reminiscent ride thru the well-loved songs of Billy Joel......especially fun watching this charismatic father-daughter duo!
our grandson (right down front) was mesmerized!!!
(and stayed up WAY past his bed-time!)
Ken kicked off 'half-time' with a special greeting & a bunch of Parkinson jokes (his own sick humor)......... a special part was having Kug pray for him ..... our church family @ GT are a huge support to us and they willingly hosted the "DECADES" event for us in their fabulous, new theatre!
Everybody likes to see pictures of themselves........
So many hands ...... So many hearts
WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
