When you participate in things like "Laughter Lives Tuesday", "Hi/Lo Thursday", or suggest a photo caption, you get links on our site to your blog, chances to be in our magazine and a lot of laughs and tears.
We don't slap a bunch of ads on our blog. We've decided that we'll have a sponsor in a post IF our readers get to win something significant. Not a coupon, or a $5 trinket... but something of real value, something that makes it worth YOUR time to check out the sponsor.
Post your Hi/Lo Thursday, and we'll randomly choose one of you to win the hundred bucks tomorrow! Be sure to visit the sponsor website so they feel good too (and keep sponsoring prizes!) Sound good?
Hi/Lo Thursday is where we get to know each other by sharing our emotional/spiritual HIGH and LOW for this previous week. It's a great way to get to know each other!
A "high" that you won't find on most normal days. Our high is getting to give chemo at home. We cajoled the doctors into allowing us to keep her I.V. port in, and sending us home with the chemo. It takes us about 5 minutes, saving us 4-5 hours going to the clinic.
Abby is actually telling me to "smile Daddy!"
as Sami takes the pics.
Abby has two ports: the one on the left with the white circle is her
feeding tube. The one on the right, under the bandages is her I.V. port.
The dark area around her feeding tube port is where they had
to chemically burn off the tissue that was expanding outside her stomach.
Michelle is putting chemo in a second port, on the right, a tube
that runs directly into her heart. Fun, huh?
Momma, a real nurse, administers chemo while Dad, a pretend nurse
helps out. Actually, I (Brent) do all this stuff too, but I only feel safe doing it
because Michelle carefully watches everything anyone does medically with Abby.
Abby is already starting to show signs of the mucositis (sores) after just a couple of days of starting this round. Last night she was weak and tired. It appears we are headed for another very difficult time. We covet your prayers.
