I am so glad to hear things are going well. I just began reading this blog last week after my mother sent me the link. She lives in Cape and is a friend of your your grandmother, Blanche. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am practically speachless, Jen & Chris. You are both my "heros" and I thank God that your courageous fight continues. I can just imagine how difficult the post-op is, but God will get you through this just as He did the surgery. I can hardly wait until your return home---what a wonderful reunion that will be with your beautiful daughters and many, many devoted supporters. We all love you!

Jen & Chris-
I just read your postings this morning at work for May 3rd and it brought tears to my eyes. I felt pretty silly because I just started with a new department at work and I'm crying in the first week! I'm so happy to hear about the success of the surgery. This blog is so important.

Looking forward to the blog where the mental picture you will be able to create for us is one of you and Jen laughing and playing with your girls with all of this pain a distant memory. I know it will be soon! Until then, prayers are being said every minute for you guys.

Jen and Chris,
I am so happy to hear the surgery was a success. From your blog I can see that you have amazing, talented doctors. I am praying every day for a swift recovery. I feel God's presence with you, protecting you and holding you close in his arms. May you both continue to have the courage to handle this challenging time in your life.

I have not met you, but Chris worked with me (and sat right next to me) at Butler Manufacturing for several months. Reading your story is so inspirational...I have now added you to my daily prayer list. I am in the midst of a career change, leaving Butler and engineering to pursue a Master's in Social Work at the University of Kansas (this will shock Chris). I hope to do family, marriage and adolescent/child counseling. For me, your story of courage has increased my commitment to pay more attention to what's really important in life and pursue even harder the desire to help others heal.

I just wanted you to know how happy we are to know that things went well during surgery. I don't know if you remember or not but my first grade at St. John's has been praying for you and we will continue to pray for your recovery. Stay strong.

Jen, Chris & Family,

I found your site thru Dana's & have been following your journey everyday since Jan. What a strong couple you guys are!!! You all have been faced with some pretty big mountains & have hurdled over them with such GRACE & COURAGE!!! I had never signed before, but on Chris' last post he said how you got a kick out of all the messages Jen so I had to send you some love from KENTUCKY!!! By the way, love the name Peighton. I have a Peyton (boy) myself who is 5. Stay positive & keep fightin' to kick this cancer's BUTT!!!
