Pictures and Thank You

Normally I write my blog posts and emails after the kids go to sleep. I need to find a new time to write. Abby snores and has periods of apnea when she sleeps and it is making me nuttier than usual. I wish I could write while I am listening to her but so far I haven't been able to.

I want to say thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. You made the day a lot of fun and it was a powerful reminder of how many people care about Abby. Last year Brent asked people to send me verses on 3 by 5 cards. They were a blessing then, when Abby was in the hospital, and now I have brought them out once again. It is embarrassing to admit but with things being stressful again, I have the I have the attention of a kid two days before summer break. The cards and comments are fun to read and remind me that we are not in this alone.

Thank you for continuing to pray for Abby and for reaching out to her. She has had so much fun listening to your comments and opening the cards you have sent her. Abby loves her pen pals.

Abby before the Valentines Day Dance. The smile says it all.
Brent made the girls feel special and loved.
Abby at the doctors office Tuesday. I love that she enjoys her time there.

I love Abby's sweet face. If I had known how low her white blood cells were
I would have had her wear a mask and wiped down the toy
before she played with it. I am glad I didn't know because Abby had a ball.

Hoping that God keeps Abby and your family tightly in his grasp. I have no words of comfort other than that, but I sure wish I did.

Much love from NC

I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying the little things in life and that the cards from last year are still a blessing!

Abby is precious and I'm sorry to hear her WBC is low again!

We love you all and continue to keep you in our prayers!

My son Abel prays for Abby every night, for more than a year now and he would like to send her a card, can you email me an adres? Abel played with the same toy at the hospital last saturday when he had hurt is elbow with judo. Luckely for him he only has to skip the lessons for 1 week and had no broken bones.

Definitely praying!!!
Love seeing her precious face. All that waiting reminds me of the hours upon hours I spent as a child waiting for doctors. Glad she enjoyed herself anyway :)

Happy Birthday!
Abby does look so happy in these pictures, I hope her counts get back where they need to be. Her hair is beautiful, I know she must be really happy to have it back.

Happy belated birthday! Glad to hear that you were able to enjoy it but so sorry to hear that things are stressful again. I worry when you don't post but I understand why it's hard to put your thoughts (if you're rested enough to have coherent thoughts- I know I wouldn't under the circumstances)together. Hoping and praying that things get better with Abby really, really soon. Hope Garrett is doing well.
