From Rebecca Halcomb
Beau and I just wanted to thank everyone for the prayers, meals, monetary support, and general help these past 7 months. (And please forgive me if you did not receive a thank you note. I have tried to keep up with them but with so many I've been overwhelmed and at times have lost track) We could not have done it without our Lord and everyone of you! Beau is on the road to recovery but there are still some obstacles now and in the next 2 years until he can be considered cured. "For we know not what the future holds but we know who holds the future." His energy and spirits are all heading in the right direction. I am so excited to say that every day I get a little more of my husband back! Praise God! Beau will begin very slowing easing back into work here soon. I also start back to work today and have many anxieties about that. Please pray for us as we once again start a "new normal". Cancer has forever changed not only Beau but our entire family. This ugly disease has left us with months of emotions we are still facing. I am thankful though that through Beau's cancer we have grown closer as a couple and more importantly closer to our Lord! Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We love and appreciate you all!

Beau Update:
Heading to the hospital bright and early for round 7 of chemo. Platelets were around 90,000 on Friday so we are quite sure he will qualify to start tomorrow evening at some point. This is the longer of the 2 regimens so he will he inpatient until Monday at some point. I'll also not be able to stay with him the whole time like I normally do. I have to be home to take Kellen to his first day of preschool, have a doctors appointment of my own and a wedding I need to be at. Not looking forward to being separated from him for this long! Please be praying chemo does indeed start tomorrow, that Beau stays strong this week and his body does not get as worn out as it has (each time has been continually worse), that I don't have major anxiety about coming home and Beau's spirits stay up and positive as I'm away and he misses Kellen's first day of school. We plan on Face Timing on our walk there so he can be involved! Praising God for technology like this during these times!

From Rebecca Halcomb:
Beau Update:
Actually not even sure where to start right now but I wanted to let everyone know what has transpired today and what we could really use prayer about. We left early this morning for Cleveland to be admitted for round 7. Unfortunately Beau's platelet level is only around half what it needs to be to qualify for it so he was sent home and we'll try again next Tuesday! :( There is a standard protocol that is followed to ensure the best outcomes. We have now wavered from this due to other possibly more serious side affects. We completely understand, KNOW God knew this path we are on before we got here and trust Him but it is still disappointing all the same. In the meantime our air conditioner has malfunctioned/broke and we have no air for the night. Kids are off to my moms to stay comfortable. On top off all this Beau begins coughing, his throat is sore and is having tightening in his chest. I call the doctor to explain and we are now sitting in the ER waiting for a bunch of tests to be run. Oh and did I mention yesterday we almost had to take both boys to the ER for completely separate things!!! Yes the last 2 days have been disasters and I think we deserve a redo!

Please pray Beau's platelets rebound so chemo can start Tuesday and that he only has a cold that does no progress any further. Also that we all can get some much needed sleep, that the air conditioner gets fixed quickly tomorrow and that all of us stay out of harms way! It's been a year for the books that's for sure! The closer we get to The Lord and the more we are relying on Him through this the harder the devil is trying to fight.
