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.

At Home

This will be a quick update. We made it home last night. By the time we got the girls fed and to bed, the van unloaded, trash down to the curb and were ready for bed, neither of us felt like putting up and update.

Today has not been the best of days. We had to take our cat to the vet and they put him to sleep. He wasn't doing well. We asked the vet to do some testing to see what he had. We wanted to make sure that he didn't have cancer. It turns out he was in kidney failure. Our other cat probably had the same problem a few months back and didn't make it either. Not exactly what we wanted, but a fact of life. Both cats were getting old, so it was to be expected at some point.

While Rebekah was having a snack today, she pushed her chair over and fell into the half wall. I felt terrible. She has some scratches on her head, but otherwise seems to be doing just fine.

The girls have had lots of play time and got to share a bath. I asked them both if they wanted to play or have a bath and they both indicated that they wanted a bath. When I told them it was time to get out of the bath, they both objected. Bath time has become fun again, which is great! For the longest time, I had to find time to give Sarah a bath while Rebekah was sleeping (which was becoming more and more difficult) so that Rebekah wouldn't want a bath, too.

Please continue to pray for Oliver and his family. He received his transplant today.

So sad to hear about your cats. I really enjoyed them when I visited. Hopefully in time you'll find room in your hearts and time for a couple kittens. Mike and I still have 5 cats, and they are our children. It can be painful. It is so nice to read about Rebekah being a "normal" kid, and we keep praying for no side effects, and we trust that God hears our yearnings. Haven't forgotten the cookies, but my life is a bit turn upside down these days. When I can get the cookies made, I'll tell you about it when I drop them by. Love to all.

Sorry to hear about your cat. Glad you are home again.
Rebekahs little fall sounds like a typical thing to me! Don't stress it, bless it!!
Will pray for Oliver right now.
Maybe you could get another cat from a rescue.?

I'm so sorry about your kitty. With a houseful of animals here, I know how much they can mean to a family.

Enjoy bath time -- isn't it fun!?
