Thank you to everyone who has written and asked "where you guys at?" since we haven't blogged much in a couple of weeks.
We've been dealing with a very serious situation that has completely overshadowed blogging and about anything else going on. We don't feel right now it is a type of thing we want to publicly blog about. Maybe down the road in hindsight we might write about IF it is something that could help others (after all, trials that are used later to help others, become "trials with a purpose"). But for now it is a private matter.
So that's why you haven't heard much from us. This week... we are doing something very special that come up unexpectedly (and to God's predictable glory, at just the right time to encourage us). However, where we are currently, we have no phone service and I just get a dash of Internet time each night late. We are going to throw some photos up each day and keep you guessing... then when we get back we'll have some wonderful memories and photos to share.
Abby is doing very well on our adventure. Since the mold got removed from our bathroom, her fevers seemed to die down pretty quickly. She appears to have gone several days now with no fevers at all, and only a a handful since the mold was removed. We are so incredibly thankful to our wonderful Christian family who helped us quickly rip that mold out and rebuild the bathroom. It's such a blessing to be part of God's family... to help and be helped as needs arise.
What we are doing this week is about as close to "normal" as Abby has got to be in a very long time. She's still a little frail (she's still on chemo after all) but she is gaining strength all the time and getting to do most of what all the other kids are doing.
Thanks so much for all your kind and wonderful comments, prayers and love for our family. Despite a few negative comments lately, they are outnumbered a hundred to one (much more actually) with comments of kindness, care and encouragement. We are forever grateful for our "blog family" and hope that over the years we'll have opportunity to return the favor with our prayers, help, advice and encouragement for you.
