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.

4am Comes Early

4am comes pretty early when you are getting to bed at 11pm-midnight in order to get things done after being gone all day.  Testing week.  And I know more is getting “Tested” then Rebekah’s scans.

We received two calls last night from the hospital.  This is a “different” hospital than we normally go to and the only one that has this piece of equipment (PET Scanner).  The anesthesiologist was really good, had at least read Rebekah’s history and seemed like he “knew” her even though this will be his first time with her.  The nuclear medicine guy was not so good.  When asked about what times things were actually scheduled for – we are a little leary about having to be somewhere at 6am when the places we need to be seen in generally don’t open until 8am – he pretty much didn’t want to tell me.  When we explained that we would be anywhere anytime but were not fond of  1 ½ early just to fill out a single anesthesia form, he became very condescending and informed us that if we spent any time around hospitals at all we would know that things are “just that way.”  We let that one go…

One thing we have not mentioned earlier this week is that Carl from Gales Creek Church has spent a couple days this week (with help although we have not always been here so we don’t know who for sure) helping to trim some fruit trees that we have.  It is a HUGE chore and we very very much appreciate Carl (and friends)…

As I think we already said, we are going to be meeting the doctors after the tumor board reviews all of our scans next Tuesday.  That is when we should have some results so please keep praying.  Pray also for any sources of funding for a freezer and the new bed – even though we got the new bed VERY inexpensively, the funds we had planned on using for that have “been diverted” and are no longer available.

Lord, please let there be a special outpouring of funds for their family needs. Touch the hearts and pockets of those who have much to share. Small drops of water,collectively, will fill a glass full. Thank you Lord for meeting their needs. Amen.

Argh that guy needs a good cuff upside the mellon till his head pops off. And if he complains about losing his head, I'll smile and say, "Sorry Pop, things are just that way."
