A Couple of Pictures

Thank you guys so much for the comments on the Desitin! We are really really glad that you find it so amusing :)

Yes, it is delightful to have our girls acting like normal little ones. But admittedly it is juxtaposed with the ongoing issues. It's weird to have some things be so normal and others so not.

Here are some pictures of the girls playing in their playroom this weekend. The one of Rebekah alone is one of the best examples that we have that shows the current effects of the radiation (one eye larger than the other and the lack of hair on that side). The one of Sarah and Rebekah is so cute - that "wagon" was a gift from the hospital staff at Rebekah's End of Chemo party gets SO much use trying to pull/push each other around.

Wow. The difference in amount of hair is huge. I thought the little bit on her left side was pretty good, but I guess it has been a little while since the radiation stopped. Do you know if it will change eventually or will she always struggle with that?

Such precious, precocious girls!!!

The girls look wonderful. Take a deep breath, and just enjoy the view. OK, then it's back to real life... It's encouraging to see all that hair on Rebekah, that means her sweet little body is regenerating. The radiation hair loss is normal. My experience is that chemo effects regenerated, and radiation effects didn't. I'm almost 1 1/2 years post treatment, and the radiation hair hasn't come back. I don't know if it evers does, but the comb-over will work. Praise God for His healing mercies. I know there are still MANY issues, present and future, but I trust God will see you through those as well.

Take care.
We're still praying in NC.
