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.

It is mighty cold. Overnight, the temperature dropped to 22. Right now, we are at 27. It is down right cold. We are going to have to be bundled up to go ride the horse this morning. I bet the horse won't want to get up and moving very fast this morning, either.

All in all, the girls are doing pretty well. Rebekah has been taking afternoon naps. She's pretty tired after school. She'll often fall asleep on the ride home and then after lunch she will want a nap. Sarah, on the other hand, is very clear that she wants to "play" after lunch. Then again, Sarah, always wants to play if the alternative is sleep.

I've been pushing a bit harder with potty training. Both girls are able to "go" on the potty, so now they don't get a sticker unless they have a dry pullup and go pee or poopy on the potty. Boy did that tick Sarah off when she didn't get a sticker because her pullup was wet. I'm not sure if Rebekah really cares about the stickers or potty training for that matter. She seems to be content to wear a diaper and have Mommy change her all the time. Sarah gets really upset when I try to put a diaper on her. Both girls prefer to use the "dora" potty seat and not the little potty. So, we have to take turns and not sit for a long period of time (better for mommy's patience anyway). Once in a while, they'll use the little potty when they need to.

Can you believe that it is already November? Rebekah's 9 month scans are due in November. I called last week and got us scheduled for an MRI and a Chest CT. I had asked for next week with at least one of the scans scheduled for Friday, since Rebekah doesn't have school on Fridays. They called back and had us scheduled for both the MRI and the chest CT on Friday with one anesthesia. The bad part is that we have to check in at 6:15 in the morning. But one anesthesia and getting both done the same day and not having to miss school is great, so 6:15 next Friday (the 10th) it is. Sometime between now and then, I'll need to get Rebekah in for the Panorex and possibly a Chest Xray. Maybe this Friday. We'll see.
