In this blog post I was planning to post all of the pictures of friends wearing yellow for Luke, but I'm only able to include a few because there are just far to many. Instead, I've compiled some fun statistics on the "Luke is halfway through his chemo so wear yellow to encourage him" Sunday. Here they are:
•Number of photos posted: 139
•Number of people in photos: 397
•Number of babies in photos: 36
•Number of dogs in photos: 5
•First photo: Rio Vale
•Last photo: Susie Disselkoen
•Celebrity submission: Jordan Spieth
•Youngest person pictured: Oliver Kelsey (4 days old)
•Oldest person pictured: No comment
•Most distant photo submissions: Singapore (two of these!), Capetown, Spain, and Ecuador
We also had three yellow mugs, two yellow flowers, a bunch of Kroger workers in yellow shirts, a yellow house, an earring, a sock, a truck, a duck, and Sara Kells' weird photo. We received submissions from Cleveland, Vermont, New Jersey, Cincinnati, Nashville, Indy, Virginia, New Orleans, Wisconsin, Boston, Missouri, Chicago, Colorado, West Virginia, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, and New York.
Thank you. Seriously. We are blessed. Luke is encouraged, and he needs it. This is another full week of radiation and chemotherapy. Long days, tired body. We continue to pray for zero tumors in Luke's chest by the end of April, once he's completed radiation.
Can't stop, WON'T stop praying for God to heal our boy. (James 5:14-16)
