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.

Wednesday Night

Melissa and her daughter Kerissa spent a few hours with us this morning. Melissa helped watch both girls while Mommy got some stuff done. That was great! It was nice to be able to get to some of the things that I haven't been able to get done yet this week. I was able to get the fridge in the trailer emptied and defrosted, so that it is ready for next week's hospital stay, get some laundry done, put some clothes away in Rebekah's room (that have been sitting in a basket for a few days), get Sarah a nice bath, dishes, etc... Thanks so much Melissa!

In many ways, today has been just another day (same old, same old). Sarah eating up a storm, cranky because of her teeth and diaper rash (which is getting better), and generally playing well. Rebekah eating very little, wanting to do everything herself (except if she can get Mommy to pick her up and carry her), throwing up, throwing temper tantrums, playing, wanting to read books, etc... My headache is only a little better.

Rebekah needed her dressing changed tonight and did a VERY good job with it. She was upset (every time I mentioned a dressing change, she said "no"), but she was not incosolable and didn't cry the entire time. We are so proud of her!

I hope for you more "normal" days and a complete refreshing of rest and health for you all as you prepare for another week of chemo.

I'm glad you got a bit of mom time, and hope that those times get more frequent. It's nice to have a break even if it's just to do the laundry. When I don't have time for laundry, I can't stop thinking about how nice it would be to do it.

Just letting you know I haven't forgotten about you. I still visit daily, but don't always leave a comment. You're in my daily prayers!

I am never quite sure how to do postings on your website! So, I'll just say here that I'm thinking of and am praying for you and am glad to hear of you having more and more family time at home, even just doing "regular tasks"... Nurse Wendy
