Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. 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. Please find joy in what you read here.

Rebekah is asleep in the MRI. What a big girl, no numbing gel, no relaxing drugs, just "tubes (iv) here daddy" as she points to her arm. She sat totally still and didn't flinch or even cry when the nurse put in the iv. Then Rebekah pushed in the syringe of propyphol and her eyes rolled into he head and daddy laid he on the guerney. As she was going under she said "bye bye daddy."

I'd say waiting is hard but actually ot much easier than dealing with a very fussy crying yelling girl when she comes out of the anesthesia.

And mommy Debbie is her helping to take care of Sarah. Thank you mommy Debbie!

I enjoyed our visit in the atrium last Monday morning. I believe God orchestrated our meeting at the hospital. Rebekah is an amazing child considering all she has gone through and is still going through. God made children resilient. You both are amazing, too, considering all the personal challenges you are contending with right now. God is definitely sustaining you. I will continue to be praying for all of you.
