This week was a great (and busy) week filled with good news. Monday night we headed up north to spend the night so we could wake up the next morning and go to Derek's regular 3 month check up at Primary Children's Hospital. Well, on the way up we got a phone call saying that Sarah had her baby! She had a healthy little boy, Steven, and it all went very quickly and smoothly.
We stayed the night at Trent and Leanne's house and they were great hosts to us. We got up early the next morning and headed the rest of the way to Salt Lake for a morning full of scans, x-rays, and labs. After all the tests were done we met with his doctor and she said that everything was looking great and Derek is still clean and doing great. We will go back for his next check up in October which will mark 2 years of the cancer being in remission!
After the check up was done we took a quick detour to see Dave and Sarah's baby and talked with them for a bit. After leaving the hospital we were happily driving along when I heard a weird sound. We pulled off to the side of the freeway and our drivers side rear tire was COMPLETELY flat. We were almost to Fillmore when we pulled off. It was really hot outside in the middle of the afternoon with cars and semis rushing by as Derek tried to change the tire as best he could. We put on the spare and drove the rest of the way home on that. Since then, we have taken it in to get fixed and all is well now. It put a little kink in the trip, but everything turned out fine.
Friday morning we got a call saying that another baby had made its way to this world. Amy had a beautiful little girl. They haven't named her yet, but she is darling and we are all excited to have her and Steven join our family.
Today (Sunday) we got up first thing to go to a doctors appointment for me in St. George. We got done with that and rushed back so that I could accompany a duet in sacrament as well as give our own talks we prepared for sacrament. It was a busy Sunday of rushing here and there and going from one thing to the next at church. We are relieved to have it all over and that everything went well.
