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.

The Meeting

Rebekah has had a rough day. It is pretty clear that the chemo is catching up on her and knocking her down flat. She is spending a lot of time screaming, hitting, saying "no" etc.

Mommy and daddy had their "post chemo this is what to expect" meeting with the doctors. Mommy says I am not allowed to be graphic or, as I tend to call it, "bottom line" with you right now. I guess what it comes down to is that we have to be grateful to be this far (which of course we are) but our odds are really no better right now than 9 months ago - we have just had 9 months more. From here on out every day/week/month of survivability does increase the odds, however.

Maybe next week we will follow up with some more specifics but for right now we are just letting it hit us and we are going to have to leave it at that. Grandma is just arriving and we need to try and get out of here.

It sounds like that was a tough meeting. We should all be thankful for each day that we have and cherish it, our children and those we love. This is a good reminder for all of us.

Reading your post makes me sad. I feel for you so much. Today Kenna wanted to go to Rebekah's and kept asking if we were going to Rebekah's. Whenever you can have visitors at home again we'd love to come visit again (and help out too). In the mean time praying for your strength and peace and courage and for Rebekah's healing.

Be encouraged with each good moment and with the fact that so many have been touched by your lives as you continue to be open and transparent with each new day. You are all loved and held daily in prayer.

God is good and nothing is beyond his control. I am praying for Rebekah's complete healing and God's grace and strength to be evident in your lives. He will not let you down. He will always be there with you helping you in the coming days and thousands will be praying for his intervention on your behalf. God Bless you!

Thinking of and praying for you all everyday with love and compassion. Thank God that He hears us and knows your needs and cares for you......I Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." Praying for peace through the times ahead.
