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.

End of the Day Friday

It has been an "at home, don't do much of anything" day. We have hung out and played most of the day.

Rebekah's teacher came by and played with both girls for a while this afternoon. Both Rebekah and Sarah seemed to enjoy the time. I think the girls get tired of Mommy and like "new" faces. Jennifer (the teacher) noticed several developmental growths since she last saw Rebekah, which was before Rebekah was diagnosed with cancer in April 2004. We have seen them as well, but it is always good to get an outside perspective. Thanks Jennifer for coming!

For those of you who don't know, before Rebekah was diagnosed with cancer, she had been involved with Early Intervention through the local school system because of her development delay issues.

The girls have played well together, at times, today. Rebekah would say she wanted a toy and Sarah would go get it for her, they were taking turns playing with a particular toy, they both worked at filling a stocking full of peek-a-blocks, etc... At other times, they have been beating up on each other. Rebekah has spent time in time-out for hurting her sister. Sarah has had some time-out for hurting Rebekah as well. Uugh!

The stool softener seems to be working. She had a couple of soft (although not runny) stools today. I decided to go ahead and give her one more dose of the stool softener tonight. I hope that I'm not sorry for that.

The claritin seems to be helping some, but I'm not sure how much. She continues to sneeze periodically, but she hasn't seemed in as much pain as she had been. We will continue to monitor her situation.

New friends, Kelli and Jake, are coming tomorrow to help us get some things done. It should be a good time and we are looking forward to it.

Can't wait to meet you all. I'm glad yesterday was a good day for you. I like those ho hum days especially in the midst of all the hectic days. God bless you.

Last night Rebekah was in one of my dreams! She was happily entertaining everyone around her in this large theatre. I thought it strange that I don't know your family personally and there she was in my dream, but I believe God did that so I would be reminded to pray. He definitely speaks to us while we sleep!
I hope you have a blessed, relaxed weekend together.
