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.

Good News for Gage

Gage's biopsy came back with NO LEUKEMIA. They still want to make sure his platelet count comes back up and they will be doing a PET Scan, so there is still the "unknown". Please continue to pray for them as they wait.

We will be going up to Seattle next Tuesday afternoon to consult with the doctors there. Friend Debbie has agreed to watch Sarah for the day and it should be a one day trip. We are looking forward to another look at her scans and gaining some "comfort" with where we are at. At least that is our hope. At the same time, we are a bit fearful of them being more concerned than our doctors here. It is an emotional roller coaster ride.

Sunday morning, we jumped out of bed after hearing Rebekah start to scream. I'm not exactly sure what she did, but she had a cut on the top of her head an one on her forehead. She was very upset, so I was trying to calm her down and stop the bleeding and not get her more frightened. It is all still very sensitive. All a part of having kids!

She continues to love riding the bus. Sarah climbs on, too, and tries to fasten herself in one of the seatbelts. Rebekah will describe it as a "yellow school bus". I figure we're doing pretty good with that. And she knows she needs her backpack and shoes and a hat in order to go to school. What a big girl she is!
