Mom & Dad on Hillary's rehearsal day!

Hi all!
Update on mom....

(mom sitting by the first fire in their new outdoor fireplace)

Mom continues to take her chemo treatments via IV every two weeks. They last about 2-2 1/2 hours at St. John's. Dad brings her up and sits right with her. They have a nice comfortable room for them though. It's very cozy...recliners, food/beverages, TV, blankets, magazines, books, soft lights, etc. They will do another MRI probably late Nov./early Dec. we should know more then about this 2nd tumor. Pray that it's GONE or hasn't grown!!!!

Grandma (GiGi) comes daily except Tuesday's and the weekends to help with mom. Thank you grandma for all you do for mom and dad. Mom is very weak and struggles with communication still. She likes to watch her shows such as the Price is Right, a soap opera and Dancing with the Stars! :) She rests a lot but enjoys her visits with people. Sorry to those that come by and she's sleeping....it's taken a lot out of her, thank you for understanding. Walking around is difficult for her, but she tries her best! We've gotten to take her out on the back patio to enjoy these past few days of beautiful weather. This weekend was fun for her to watch Claire ride her bike and the guys went fishing. We had a fun fish fry on Saturday! Thank you to uncle Donnie, Aunt Ramona, GiGi and Gramps for bringing the side dishes!

To the Stigler community, school, church, bank employees, friends/family, everyone that has prayed, brought food by, visited, called, sent cards, etc....our family is blessed because of YOU!

We love you all and thank you again for the support and prayers. love, the Forrester family!


  1. It is so good to hear from you! I think of you daily and continue to pray for your healing. I try to keep up with you through Phyllis & Lana. They are so good to keep us "in touch". I pray God blesses you with a great holiday and for added strength for your body. You and your family are so precious and are such blessings! And Charlene, she is an angel! We are all so blessed.
