Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. 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.

Sunday Evening

Rebekah has been throwing up and has nasty diarrhea, which has caused a diaper rash. I think we can thank the antibiotics for both of them, but don't know if it could be the bug that is going around. In any event, I have to deal with the throwing up and the diarrhea - lots of laundry and lots of diaper changes. She has been continuing to eat some, but doesn't seem to handle the tube feeds very well.

Both Rebekah and Sarah have been running low grade fevers and a bit more cranky than normal. They have both had lots of poopy diapers today. I feel like I've changed a hundred diapers today. I know it hasn't been that many, but it sure feels like it.

Daddy spent most of the day in the office today. It has been a bad couple of weeks for getting work done and he tried to make a dent in it today.

Grandma A stopped by yesterday and brought Easter outfits for the girls - matching dresses, sweaters, socks, purses and a hat for Rebekah. She visited for a bit and the girls were excited to have her here.

Grandpa and Grandma C stopped by today and visited for a bit. They brought a turkey breast out for us which Grandma C had baked for us and it made for a great dinner. The girls seemed excited they were here. Rebekah ran to tell Daddy that they were here. It was really cute.

Rebekah has been tickling Sarah while Mommy changes Sarah's diaper. Sarah will just giggle and giggle. It is really cute to watch.

There are many cancer kiddos that we have come to know and love. We keep their links on the right side of the page. Here are some bits for some of the kids. Oliver had his transplant (number two) and is waiting for signs that it is starting to take hold. He continues to be in isolation. Madeleine's family continues to research and try to determine where to go from here. Josh is eating some food by mouth, which is fabulous. He still needs prayer for his eating and for his trachea to be healed. Kennedy is having insurance issues. Gage should be in tomorrow for his last round of chemo. Warren is CANCER FREE.

My goodness. I hope you took out stock in Huggies or Pampers. Those poor girls (and I'm sorry for mommy and daddy, too). Seems like their little bodies are just very sensitive to "bugs" right now. Seems like it's one thing after another. So sorry. Praying everyone gets to feeling better very soon.
