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.

Surgery Day

Much has gone on over the last few weeks and there is much to share so please check back. Today is surgery day.

Rebekah and Daddy will be headed to the hospital in just a few minutes for an early morning check in, a general anesthetic and surgery. All working in her her little mouth will be the anesthesiologist, the dentist and the oral surgeon. At this point we believe the plan to be to remove two adult teeth that are dead and infected under the gums. Given Rebekah's physical state of her jaw due to radiation damage, we cannot be sure that the need won't be far greater or that her jaw won't fracture while working on it.

Basically Rebekah's jaw is brittle and her adult teeth are dead in their original spots due to the large amounts of radiation she received to kill her tumor. We knew we were going to have issues in this area and are blessed that we have been able to avoid them until now.

Please pray that today remains simple and Daddy has the ability (and those around him) to calmly get through the day.

Dear Jesus,
You are the Great Healer and Physician our Comforter and Friend. Please guide these physicians and aids as they perform surgery on little Rebekah. Give strength and comfort to Rebekah's daddy.
It is in Your name we pray Jesus. Amen

Hugs to you Scott.
