Superbowl Sunday

Way to go Colts!

Today was a pretty low key Superbowl Sunday for the Schmitt's. Amy was away in Spokane with the Air Force & Jake was over in Pullman. So, I...along with Rick, Angie and my brother- in- law and sister-in-law (Tom and Vickie) spent a quiet day in front of the big screen rooting for the Colts. Apparently, I was a little tired or something, because I fell asleep and missed most of the 3rd and 4th quarters. Turkey dinner was the treat of the day. We had a few snack items too, but the main meal was turkey and all the trimmings. Yum.

I can't believe it was a year ago when we were sitting in front of the 36" television cheering on the Seahawks. When a milestone like this one comes along and reminds me how much our lives have changed over the past year, I'm almost in shock.

Rick is still feeling pretty good. No major side effects of this first round of chemo. I'm still coughing, but if you listen closely it sounds like the lyrics to a song "Rock around the Cough".
Just kidding. I'll try to keep taking care of myself too (however I'm a terrible patient).

Love you more than all the money lost in Vegas today on "the Bears"

Dreams do come true,

Hello Doreen-My name is April. You don't know me but my friend Kim Boyer is also your friend. She has been telling me all about her amazing friends in Stanwood and all that you are going through. I have been praying for you guys for some time now. I just today have seen your blogs and your story. Amazing! I am not sure what to say or think other than you are all one very amazing family. You are all inspirations and I can see affecting so many people in ways you have no idea! I can't imagine what you go through with the emotional roller costers! But I can see you are surrounded by many great people. I want you to know that I will continue to pray for you and Rick and your kids as each day is a new day for you. I love your theme song-Never heard it before. I hope that each day can bring you new understanding and a new love of life! I am sure it is hard to feel God's love on some days but I know He is hurting with you. Miracles are an amazing thing and I will continue to pray for them. I hope some day Kim can introduce me to you and until then know that I will think of you often and be inspired by you daily! Thank you for sharing all you are going through with us. You are a truly amazing woman!
God Bless,
