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.

Rebekah Continues to be Sick

Rebekah isn't getting any better. Her fever has gone up to 102 and might drop to 100 on tylenol or motrin. She clearly doesn't feel well, and wants to lay on the couch or take a nap much of the day. Although she has spurts where she seems fine. This morning, she started coughing, too.

We decided that we should head to the doctor and that she probably needed antibiotics, so we called this morning to get an appointment and headed in this afternoon. It looks like she has an ear infection. So, she is on antibiotics again.

She's not eating, but she is at least drinking and staying hydrated. And she's drinking milk and her juice drinks so she is getting halfway decent calories. She still isn't getting enough, but some is better than none. And hopefully, once the antibiotics kick in her appetite will increase.

So far, Sarah seems to be doing ok. She does, however, want cough booboo medicine any time that Rebekah is getting any type of booboo medicine. She isn't coughing, but she seems to want the attention of medicine. They have ween waking up at 5 am when usually sleep until 6am or 7am (or on occasion 8am). Makes for a tired Mommy (and Daddy for that matter).

McKenna is back in the hospital with fever and low (almost non-existent) counts. I remember those days with Rebekah. Please pray that her antibiotics and blood transfusion helps her to feel better.

Today Rachel turned 7. She still needs lots of prayers.

Hi Rebekah. My name is also Rebekah and spelled the same way. I am 17 years old and live in Florida. Customers at my job always notice the way my name is spelled. So like others, I google my name and found your page. I just wanted to say that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you get much better and have a life full of joy. Thank you for having this page. It really opened my eyes to reality and to a new extraordinary person. You and your family are so beautiful and I pray that angels watch over you and keep you safe.
