Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. 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. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Sunday - Back To The Hospital

If you have read the last couple of updates you know that things have not been going real well since we got home right before Thanksgiving.  Today was unfortunately not a change from that and we are headed back to the hospital  Chest X-rays and antibiotics have been ordered to be performed immediately upon arrival.  

Rebekah continued to be upset, throwing up, etc. through today and then this evening started spiking a fever.  She was well over 102 at her armpit and as high as 104 something on her forehead.  It snuck up on us quite fast.  Not good.  This last chemo was the one that is most likely to cause serious problems with neutropenia (sp?) with low counts and infection.  It is also the one that caused us our longest stay total in the past.  

Mommy and the girls headed in tonight and daddy will try and get a few things cleaned up, packed and head in tomorrow.  Unfortunately with being gone for thanksgiving and all we have not had any chance to do anything with laundry, cleaning the trailer etc. from our last stay and we figured (blindly) that we would have 2 weeks to get everything taken care of before our next hospital stay.  

Praise God again for the Dunham’s who are meeting us at the hospital to take care of Sarah on a moments notice and pray for a miraculous recovery.

Was getting concerned, am glad to see your post. God be with Rebekah. May His Spirit bind up and break her fever as well as restore and build up her immune system. God's angels minister to your family's every need.

Dear God, Please set Rebekah free from this horriable disease. Let her be a child with a wonderful childhood. I don't know your plan, Lord, but what ever has to be done, so be it so that Rebekah can be well and live on for many years to come.
Take her pain away, Lord. Help her body to be strong and fight this ugly thing.
In your name, I pray, Amen.
