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.

We are sleeping at the "All Better" House

We were finally given the "keys" to the all better house. Last week, we had our "stuff" that was cleaned after the fire (or at least most of it) delivered and we had our new appliances installed. That meant that we could think about moving in. So we decided to do that Monday evening. We moved the beds and some "essentials" and continue to work on unpacking boxes at the all better house and packing boxes at the rental house. This coming Monday will be the big "move out of the rental house" day, so we have to get everything packed and ready to move.

We are living in limbo with a house full of boxes and not sure where anything is, but it is coming together slowwwwwwly.

The girls each spent two weeks on antibiotics and had some ups and downs. Both missed some school and both had bouts of diarhea. Now that we are back home, they are sharing a bedroom again. They are both excited about being "home" and about sleeping with sister.

The girls continue to check on their plants to see if they are growing. Two of the 4 boxes are growing so far and we keep watching for the other two. The Sunflowers they planted are growing, too. And one of the trees seems to have some new growth. Now to get them to the all better house...

It feels good to be HOME and together a little more. Now we just need to get the rest of our stuff here and unpacked and be able to have more quality family time.

I'm so glad to hear that you're back home! I'm sure it was hard to be living in the apartment, even though that was better than being in a hotel and living out of a suitcase.

Enjoy your new "All Better" home!
