Still no complaints from the Elske household.  Amy and I and the girls enjoyed some quiet time in Door County early this week.  We took a few days off of work and celebrated CJ getting off isolation by taking a small vacation, just to get away.  The weather was pretty miserable-cold and very windy, but we all had a good time enjoying each others company and just driving around the countryside.


We still follow the blogs of kids we know-and some we don’t- and now we have another prayer request for you…Neal is another 18yr old with AML.  He finished his treatment in June.  We spent a lot of time sharing the hospital with him and his family this spring.  It now appears that he has also relapsed.  And Mitch’s first round of chemo since relapse didn’t get him into remission so his treatment protocol is now even tougher.  These two young men should be enjoying their first year of college, not concentrating on fighting this damn disease again.

  1. What a nice picture! Charlotte looks so content and happy! Too bad the weather didn’t really cooperate with you in Door County but like you said it was nice that you all got to enjoy each other. That’s what a family trip is all about! We continue to thank God for Charlotte’s wonderful recovery and we’ll add Neal & Mitch to our prayer list. More than anything we pray for a cure and an end to all this heartache.
