Merry Christmas,

Its Jesse-This has to be the weirdest Christmas ever. It feels like Dakota and me are off to college and my parents are coming to visit. I do hope when I go to college, I will be able to leave my room :)

My ANC is 56 today, so I will not be going home. Hopefully I will be gone by the weekend. I have to come back on Monday for a bone marrow test, but it is outpatient, and I can go back home.

Dakota and I spent our Christmas eve playing cards, listening to music, watching TV and being girls. Dad is spending the night tonight, so we will continue with the "girl" theme.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and thank you for all your well wishes and prayers on the blog.

Merry Christmas, Catrons 5!!
I am so thankful for you all, and so thankful God is holding you in His mighty hand. I thank God you are in a clean, caring, warm(?) hospital, Jesse, and not sick in a war-torn, or flooding, or burning, or otherwise ravaged place as so many others are. I am so thankful to God for keeping my families safe and protected. --- I am just flat-out thankful!!

We are having a very quite day at home. The sun is shining and it got up to about 50 degrees without any wind, and that has been a very nice change.

Enjoy your family and friends (messages, and your Dad's company tonight.

Grandpa sends his love and hugs.
Know that we love you and are praying for you always,

Jesse ...

and the rest of the family ...

Your walk has inspired my family and I. The Lord has been talking to me a lot about simplifying and seeing Him in all the little things. Reading about your journey has been one way that He has used to do this.

Thank you for reminding us all to see what is right in front of us and to treasure it ... for reminding us to speak of our love for and to hug loved ones often. Thank you for being so transparent and sharing this journey so openly. You are gifting us daily, changing us ...

reminding us what a gift a family's love is ... both the one we are born into ... and the one we are born again into. We are blessed to be a part of your family and continue to cheer for you, cry for you, and most of all pray for you.

May God's love fall upon you tonight .. thick and comforting ... that you might simply rest in it and smile. I remember the moments that His presence was almost physically tangible when I was fighting cancer ... and I pray these moments for you all as well.

Love and prayers from thankful friends,

Lisa Day ....
and the rest of the family, too.

Merry Christmas Catron Family!

It is so cute looking at all the posts and the daily pictures. I think I recognize some of the ones from when you were younger living in Gold Hill. The ones that you show of Jesse, Dakota and Matt remind me of the 3 Stooges! I do love the Christmas pictures with the scarves....the perfect blessings from above! I am praying for your safe and strong return home and for your ANC count to miraculously rise. Still hanging onto the Lord's hem of His garment and keeping the faith. You are such a strong family and are amazing bravery together.

Blessings for Christmas!

Love you Jesse.

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual
effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a
whole lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.
