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.

Snow is good...

Ok, trying to make up for all the lack of posts the last few weeks in just a matter of days. We woke up to snow this morning - always good to cheer you up - at least us. Unfortunatley mommy couldn't join the girls and daddy outside but they did have some fun.





Yes, the girls are enjoying themselves. In a small bit of coincidence, the hats that the girls are wearing were brought back from Korea and given to them by mommy Debbie and her family - the people whose home we are staying at.

This afternoon we have an appointment with the doctor in Sunriver to have mommy's blood checked. Pray for good results.

Edited to Add: Oh heck, while we are at it we might as well give you a bunch more pictures that we have taken over the last few weeks.

This morning the girls helped daddy put traction tape on the ramps daddy made for mommy's wheelchair to get it into the van:


Last weekend we met some new friends, Carly and Courtney, who are high class barrel racers and 14 year old twins. Mommy and daddy sat with their daddy on the plane coming back from Atlanta a few weeks ago. They live a long way away but were about an hour away from our house competing so they invited us to come and watch. After their races they gave the girls some rides on their top notch horses. THANKS to the Hibbs family!!!

It's great to see all those smiles at Sunriver! I'm glad you guys got some great time away.

I was catching up on the posts from the past several days and enjoyed reading the memories from Germany. What an awesome event to have witnessed - the coming down of The Berlin Wall!

I understand a little bit about the lack of respect that some have for those with disabilities. When I am in my scooter or walking with my cane there are times when people are not quite so understanding. It can be frustrating to say the least!

I'm praying that the Warfarin all balances itself out....and praying for your finances - wheelchair modifications and everything else in between!

Sending a huge hug to Oregon!
