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.

Craziness Continues

It continues to be pretty crazy around here.

Rebekah's infection seems to be a little better, but it isn't gone. She is still on the antibiotic, but only for another day or so. What should we do about that?

Sarah continues to feel better, but then this morning she was throwing up again. Ugh! It was only once and she has kept breakfast down. What is that about?

Sunday, Daddy was working in the yard (putting in more grass) and felt fine afterward. Monday morning, he went to do just a little more and did something to his back (wish we knew what) and pretty much went to bed. Any time he moved, it hurt. Since it hadn't improved by the next morning (yesterday) he wanted to go to a chiropractor (a new experience for him) and see if it could be fixed. He got a referral from a friend, made the call and got an appointment. Mommy wouldn't let him drive himself, so we all packed up and headed in. He felt better afterward, but still isn't feeling great.

Mommy still has bouts of nausea and is just plain worn out. We are all "getting by". No one is sleeping well and we all seem a little more cranky than normal.

It was a warm day yesterday, so we all got to go outside and play a little. Sarah kept wanting into the swing, but as soon as she started swinging she wanted out of the swing. Rebekah enjoyed swinging, climbing and sliding. Both girls liked to sit at the little table that is part of the play structure. Then we took a walk, looking at the trees that Daddy planted a month or so ago.

Sorry to hear everyone is still trying to get by. I wish I could say one prayer and make it all go away. I think God has other plans right now. I'm going to keep praying that His will be done in every situtaion in your lives though. Stay strong!!

When our little guy was more active his g-tube site would get really red and looked angry. Of course when he was sick and did not move much it would clear up. For 7 years we noticed this up and down...when he felt good and was acitve it got "angry". Many times we took him to the doctor and they just told us to keep it clean and apply fresh dressing several times a day. I am sure that you do all this and probably know this but I wanted you to know that someone understands your frustration.
Praying that all of you will be feel better really soon.
Prayers going up for you in Tennessee
