Nothing new, is good news this week…
I met with my urologist today, and he walked through the door with a smile on his face. He said, “Well, it looks like I’ve got nothing to say to you right now.” Today marked 7 months since my testicular cancer diagnosis. To commemorate the occasion, Tamara and I went to see the doctor that […]
March 2019 Meanderings
Michigan is cold, and snowy. The Bible school ministry is busy. We are busy as parents. The kids are busy. Josh’s cancer seems to be a thing of history. Tamara may have MS, or lupus, but we don’t know yet. The Bible schools need to merge onto one campus. We read the Bible, it keeps us […]
Update on Josh’s Surgery
So Monday morning it was. Josh’s surgery today went well. It seems that all the mass was able to be removed. Also, he was able to come home and recuperate here. We won’t hear back from the pathologist, until later this week, so we wait for now, and he rests. We really appreciate all the […]
Urgent prayer request…
Last Wednesday, I went in to have “something checked out.” On Thursday, the doctor said I needed to see the urologist “right away.” Then, on Friday, I was told by “my urologist” that since there is a 98% chance that I’ve got what appears to be testicular cancer, I’ll be having outpatient surgery tomorrow morning […]
New (-ish) and Hot!
God has been showing His faithfulness and generosity in ways that even I cannot miss! MANY of you were challenged and responded to Tamara’s post on Facebook about things falling apart. THANK YOU! Through some MASSIVELY GENEROUS gifts, we were sent on a scavenger hunt for a vehicle that was “appropriate” for our […]
The story, from where we left off…
We made it into October, and Josie was going back to school. Tamara was really beginning to enjoy the last few months of pregnancy, feeling good and getting set to make things baby-ready. Then she said she’d had a headache for the last couple days that she couldn’t get rid of. So she went in […]
Ezra IS Home!
Just wanted to drop a post to officially notify you that Ezra IS now sleeping in this house. We brought him home from the nursery yesterday, and he has been VERY busy adjusting to life at the Mathew House since then. WE are all SO grateful for each one of you! You have all been […]
Ridin’ the Whirlwind, eh?
i’ve been asked, more than a few times over the last couple days, if i felt like my world had been turned upside down. the first time i laughed and said yes. then i cried a little bit inside. the next time i was asked, it took me a bit longer to keep the tears […]
Welcome to the world little man.
Ezra Henry Mathew was brought screaming into the world at 1255 today. This is a good thing, I’m told, since he was 8 weeks and 4 days premature. He’s working with prematurity and RSD. I haven’t seen Tamara since she passed into the anesthesia induced fog at about 1257 so she hasn’t seen his beautiful […]
