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.

Not A Good Way...

...to end the week.

In February they were supposed to have done a Head MRI and a Chest CT. They somehow got the orders mixed up and did a Head MRI and a Head CT - both were clear. We finally got the Chest CT made up today.

We were not home for too long when the oncology office started calling. The first time we did not get to the phone and they did not leave a message. Then they called again. Our doc, thankfully, was very much to the point. "We have a problem." he said. He went on. "Multiple 7-9mm 'tumor type' nodules visible in the lymph nodes and lungs."

Before calling us they had already talked with the surgeon. The surgeon won't cut into her without further tests as the areas are so "deep" that it is "going to do severe damage." He wants more confirmation tests on "what and where" he is going after.

Right now they are trying to schedule us for a CT/PET scan "as soon as possible" but it is now after 5:00 on Friday so we are pretty sure we won't hear anything until Monday.

It has definitely been a roller coaster week.

Thank you so much for having the strength to share such disturbing news. I wish hugs were transportable...Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.

Not the news I was expecting when I checked in tonight...I was hoping that the eye patch issue was continuing to improve.

My heart hurts even considering the possiblities that you are facing. Please know that we care for all of you deeply and we will be sending many prayers to the ears of God on your behalf. Rebekah is such a precious girl!

Thinking of all of you...

I'm praying too, precious family.
Not the news I was expecting at all either.

We are in Paris with the family, but you can bet that our thoughts are now with you. I have tears in my eyes and wish there was something I could do to make it all be okay. We will all be sending best wishes your way.

Oh, I can't even imagine. I wasn't expecting this, either. Please know that you'll be in our thoughts and prayers (I'll let my Sara know about this, as she really fell in love with your girls when we met last year), and I'll put you on the prayer chain through our church. Take care, and God bless you with strength and courage as you face this next battle.

Hi, I don't personally know your family, but I've been following Rebekah's journey for quite some time. I've felt compelled to comment many times, but being a "stranger" to y'all, I never have. However, today after I checked in, thought I would just add my prayers to everyone here. May God's peace be with you all!!

She's such a beautiful girl and you are such an amazing family. This is not the news any of us want to hear... and I know there's nothing I can say to make it better. We're watching, waiting and praying with you.

I will be praying for Rebekah and for God's perfect peace to comfort and guide you through this. Without a doubt He is the God of healing and miracles and my prayers will be for both of those things.

I have been following your journey for awhile without posting but I want you to know that your strength, faith and courage has been an inspiration to all. Although you don't know me and I haven't posted before you have been in my prayers and will continue to be. Thank you for sharing your story and letting your testimony be a guide for us all. Blessings, Beth
