A New Arrival!

We are so excited to announce the birth of our first grandson! Caden Nathaniel Langford, arrived after 3 gruelling hours of labor by my heroic daughter in law, Stephanie. (wife to our oldest son, Ryan) Caden is little brother to Abigail who adores him. He is very cute, I must say and looks quite a bit more like Ryan did as a baby. Abby takes after her mom through and through and, of course, that makes her also very cute!!

On another note, many have asked us how our son is doing. Three months ago he was diagnosed with lymphoma (Blood cancer)and decided to go ahead with Chemotherapy. The regiment is gruelling and quite honestly, I have trouble emotionally being there just after a treatment. He is my hero though as he is remaining quite positive for his family's sake and is enduring well enough now that he has improved a little in dealing with the nausea and vomiting. Stephanie took a midwife recipe of caster oil mix to bring on labor about a week early so that Ryan could be there and assist in the labor and delivery as his treatment schedule landed on her date and could not be moved.

Ryan has had a mid treatment test and there was no cancer detected. But they continue with eight more treatments for some reason. I'll keep you updated as he is progressing through to the end of the treatments. Thank you all for your prayers and offers of support and friendship. Life is hard but God is good! Janet Langford
