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.

Where is Time Going?

We have been running absolutely ragged this week. Classes, tests, shopping, etc. etc. and it seems like mommy has no time to stop. The calmest I have seen her this week is right now sitting at the kitchen table playing playdoh with the girls. And if you have kids you know how much a misuse the word "calm" is when it comes to kiddos and playdoh!

This weekend we have Sarah's second birthday party. It is hard to believe that Sarah is going to be two! Just in case you were not sure if these two are sisters, take a look at this (yes, this is mommy and REBEKAH at 18 months):

and compare it to the picture of couple of posts ago of the two girls - you can click on either picture to get a bit bigger shot. Until looking through some pictures I never realized HOW much they looked the same at about the same age. Even mommy looks the same then as now - she never gets any older!

Our next PET/CT scan is, as I just said, a combined scan and going to be next Tuesday. It is at a new hospital that we have not been to before and that should be interesting. The nice thing is that it is within the Legacy system so we don't have to go outside our system to get it. They have only recently started doing these at this hospital and that is why we have always had to go "outside" to get our PET scans before now. We will be looking to compare with the August PET and see if any of the "hot spots" are areas of concern. Please pray for a miraculous nothing!!!!

We are continuing to pray here in Pennsylvania!

Our Pastor asks for regular updates on a weekly basis and our entire church continues to pray as well.

Happy Birthday to Sarah --and WOW does she ever look like her sister! I thought that the photo of Rebekah was Sarah also!

On another note --don't be discouraged or do a lot of "what-if-ing". Remember that the steps of the righteous are ordered of the Lord. I believe that Rebekah was right where she was supposed to be when she was supposed to be there. If you decide you need to move her care to Seattle, God will work out all the stuff that will go along with that.

Praying always!

Dearest Rebekah!! Tons of smiles to you and your family and a big hug and prayer for your mommy. I too am a mom of a special special daughter and because of what we experience on a day to day basis we can't help but think about you and keep you all in our prayers constantly. Last month as I was familiarizing myself with new blogs I came across yours. We pasted a "Pray for Rebekah" sticker plus a link to your blog on our site. I have written a little bit about our little daughter also. You look a little like her but she has long dark brown hair. :smile:

Our Mighty God bless you!
