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.

Clinic Day Today

Oliver and his family continue to be heavy on our hearts and minds today. Our problems seem so trivial in comparison to what his family is going through right now. Please continue to pray for them.

Today was a clinic day. Rebekah's counts were doing OK. Her hemoglobin is a bit low, but not in need of a transfusion. Her ANC was within the normal range. Doc expects that her counts may continue to drop, so we will continue the shots for at least a couple of days. We'll go back in on Thursday for another set of counts and check up.

Both girls have been trying to drive Mommy and Daddy crazy today, but I guess that is typical childhood behavior and we should be thankful for that.

I am convinced that the barometric pressure or the phase of the moon or whether or not the wind is blowing from the east has everything to do with the behavior of kids! Olivia was so wound up today it was crazy! --and I think the only sugar she had was one teaspoonful on her Rice Krispies at breakfast! ....oh and she spoke off and on all day of her friend "Stevie" ---she now has an imaginary friend. The joys of parenting....such a blessing...and sometimes exhausting...but always a joy!

...praying for you always here in Pennsylvania!

As I look back over the years of raising our four children there were many joys and some sorrows but I would do it all again. Having children is the greatest blessing God can give. I am continuing to pray for your family and for Oliver and all the others you have mentioned in the past. Leanne form Pa.
