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.

A Series of Lasts...continued...

continued again...

Yesterday daddy and Rebekah went to the eye doctor. As a result of the radiation Rebekah has had one of her lenses and the guts of one eye replaced with plastic. As plastic doesn't grow or change shape over time there was lots of speculation as to what kind of surgeries the future would hold for her in making this eye continue to see.

Almost miraculous Rebekah's prescription has not changed significantly enough to even require new glasses. The doc wrote us a new prescription but stated that we probably didn't need to bother filling it until/unless she needed new glasses. She continues to see between 20/30 and 20/40 out of that eye uncorrected. Quite a difference from the "likely to be blind" that we were "promised" 6 years go.

Rebekah sat through all the testing so well. She listed to instructions and even more importantly she followed them all. When she was done she got a cookie from the cookie jar the doc keeps and she was a very happy little girl. Afterward she and daddy (and a friend of daddy's) went out to eat at Red Robin as her special treat. Such a big girl she is becoming. Our big miracle girl.
