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.

Back In The Hospital Again

...this time for Dental Surgery.

We were up early and off to the hospital, general anesthetic and right now Rebekah is under with her Dentist working on her teeth to try and repair some of the radiation damage. We are not sure exactly what she is going to do as she has not been able to get good exams without having Rebekah sedated. One nice thing is that this Dentist has a very good knowledge (expertise?) of radiation damage. Thank you so SO much to Josh's mom (his link to the right) for putting us in touch with Dr. Wilson!

All in all things went okay so far. We had a long time to wait after getting here early (when they said we needed to be here). That always causes a problem and by the time we were ready for an IV and some work Rebekah was really agitated. This notwithstanding the fact that she had been given some Versed.

Melissa from Child Life was available (thank you God!) and she brought a baby doll that also has tubes, pokes, etc. etc. for Rebekah to play with. Actually Suzie (the baby doll) has been retired but Melissa brought her out of retirement because Rebekah knows her so well. Here is Rebekah and Suzie:

While we are waiting mommy and daddy are eating at the little hospital cafe. Oh the memories.

Prayers for a safe, successful treatment and for Rebekah to come out of general anesthetic as well as possible.

Hope everything went well and they were able to do all the repairs they needed to do in one setting.

I heard from Kathie that you were at the hospital for surgery yesterday. I'm hoping it all went well and that Rebekah's doing fine now. Let me know if you need anything!
