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.

Life Continues...

Life continues to be hectic around our house. We've had snow days, and late start days, etc... Poor Sarah, who goes to school one day a week, had a snow day last week and a late start (which meant her class was cancelled) this week. The two weeks before that were Chistmas break. So she has been out for a month now.

We are having more concerns about Rebekah's eye. We've been trying to "treat" for lazy eye by using a patch over or putting drops in the good eye to exercise the bad eye. She has not been real cooperative and today she refused (and nearly put her into a tizzy) to do the drops. When I said we could go get patches, she agreed. After we bought the patches and I put one on, she immediately took it off saying that she needed two eyes to see. It just breaks my heart to see her like that. So, it looks like the next step will be surgery. We'll let you know more, when we know more.

It has now been more than a month since the fire. Most of the house has been cleared of "stuff" and they have started (this week) the contractor has started some of his work - like removing drywall and insulation in the areas that were hardest hit by the fire. We still have some things to look through, but we've isolated them. We just need to have time to get through it.

Potty training is not going too well. I'm trying to push harder at it. We'll see if it works.

Mommy and Sarah stopped by to see Daddy at the Camping Trailer at the "booboo" house this week. We asked Sarah if she wanted to see her playroom and she said she did. The walls were down to studs and there was lots of drywall and insulation all over the floor. Sarah thought it was funny that she could see through the walls. She also told us, numerous times, that the playroom was "messy". That seems to be what she remembers about seeing the house. That and the fact that there were no beds in her bedroom.

Thank you all for your support and prayers. It helps us get through these days. We are very grateful for the friends and family that is here to help us.

I'm sorry about Rebekah's eye, but good to see a post. I check daily and it's always nice to see something new pop up. You're in our thoughts always.
