We made it back from Memphis late last night . . . Although it’s nice to be home, the news from Judy’s is not good.

John had an MRI on Monday and our fears of progression were confirmed by the Doc yesterday.  This tells us that the symptoms we’ve been seeing over the last 6 – 7 weeks are tumor related and will only continue to get worse. 

Please know that we plan on filling the upcoming months with nothing but love & joy.  Our main focus is to keep John as comfortable as possible, and to keep life as normal as we can for him and his two little sisters.  We will all get through this together.

We sincerely thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers you have sent our way over the last 9 months  –  We know this love and support will continue and just want you to know that it means the world to us.

All of our love.

The Thompsons
