This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Looks Like We Will Go Home

It looks we will be going home this evening, unless something changes.

She has a little bit of a sinus infection, so she will go home with an antibiotic for that. The good thing about it, is that it is an oral medication and therefore I shouldn't have to give it in the middle of the night.

She will also go home with Prilosec for the acid reflux. We will not go home with Reglan. Doc is concerned that it will cause Diarrhea and since the acid reflux is mild isn't really necessary.

I dropped both prescriptions off at the pharmacy and will need to pick them up before we go home.

We still have our appointment with the opthamologist tomorrow, so hopefully we will know more about her eye after that.

Rebekah has continued to be tired and crabby without a lot of energy. She will tell me she wants up (in mom's arms) so I pick her up and then she starts saying she wants to go night night. I lay her down and she wants back up. She seems to want the comfort of Mom, but doesn't have any energy and needs the sleep. Just no pleasing her today. No fun.

She got her Teddy Bear from the Winterhawks. Two of the players as well as the mascot came in and let her pick which Teddy Bear she wanted (they each brought in 3 or 4, so she had a few to choose from). No Media came with them, so we won't see her on TV. We did get a Poloroid picture, though.

Yipee!! Sorry Mom and Rebekah aren't getting good sleep. Hopefully, home and your own bed will help. Daddy and Sarah will be happy to see you!!

So glad to hear that you are able to head home. I will pray that Rebekah starts to feel better so that she can rest comfortable in Mommy's arms or in her own bed. I pray for continued strength for Frances and hope your allergies will calm down alittle once you are home.

Just continuing to pray......I pray for total healing for Rebekah and for rest for Frances, only the rest He can give when you're on 24/7 with Rebekah's care. I pray for His grace and strength to sustain you through this time.
I pray for Sarah's growth and thank the Lord for the Dunhams who are able and most willing to care for Sarah when Rebekah is in the hospital. I pray for Scott to have His peace and strength throught each day, too. You are all so often in my daily thoughts that lead to, Jodi

You are in my prayers...
