Day 11

I lost some of my happy, positive energy today. I still have so much to be thankful for though. Maybe even more than usual. The girls have been completely precious and so many people have reached out in extraordinary ways. I can’t write about them just yet. I guess it’s just becoming more real now. I still know God can heal me, but I was … Continue reading Day 11


One more thing. I had Susan send out an email on my behalf and that included a request to not call us because we were getting overwhelmed.

One really cool thing from Thanksgiving was that I had recently decided to make a list … Continue reading Good Things

Day 4: Silver Lining!!!!

What an amazing day! It started off horribly and I had a really bad attitude. Naomi was up all night and I felt sick from the stupid fasting part of the PET Scan. I read online that I’d have to wait 30-60 minutes to let this radioactive sugar get absorbed. So I brought a list of phone calls I had to make. Sidenote: if you’re … Continue reading Day 4: Silver Lining!!!!
