Abby's Smile - Update

From Michelle:

Abby's days, for the most part, have been filled with dance lessons, church and school. We feel blessed that our days have been packed with things we love doing after 2.5 years of things no one wants to do. Sure, there have been more medical interruptions than we wished for but we are thankful for our time with friends.

Abby's spunk continues to amaze me. Last week Abby's temperature climbed and we were told to take her to ER for blood cultures. The ER doc discovered a simple ear infection, ran the labs and then thankfully sent us home. When we tucked the princess in bed at 2 am and fully expected Abby to sleep until noon the next day.

Abby greeted us with a smile just a few hours later as she ran across the house to get ready for school. Her teachers reported that she had a wonderful day and she was full of stories about her friends. She did end up taking a 3 hour nap after school but not until I made her "rest her eyes" for just a minute.

We've got 51 official days left of this difficult journey. If you can join us for a BYE BYE CANCER celebration, be sure to sign up so we can know how many are coming. Details here...

Abby is all grins going into dance class.

We are working really hard to bring SpideyLandis out of his shell.
He's shy, introverted, has no personality and doesn't communicate.

Sounds like Abby's EXCITED for a Goodbye Cancer Day with her spunky energy keeping up with her thoughts!!! :) And of course, I'm EXCITED to hear that news!!! :)

Yes, 51 days - just around the corner!!! :D I'd mentioned before regarding finding a 'dance' bear, I'll save the postage & HAND-deliver it instead God Willing!!! :) I'd best get on the move of that planning more or I'll be walking to the nearest Greyhound p/u... haha

As always, with Hugs & Love,

Wow... 51 days. Such a short time and yet so long. Will keep you in my prayers during these last few weeks, as always!

Debbie said...

Oh my, only 51 more days. I wish I lived closer as I would love to be there to celebrate with your family. What a joyous time!

I love Abby's sweet smile. And so glad to read that she's been dancing and going to school.

Blessings and love,

So glad to hear that things are going well.

You know we'd LOVE to be at the party ... if it wasn't a 5,000 mile drive (round trip). :)

LOVE the new pics. I was reminded of the time when others actually asked you if maybe you should just stop treatment, and allow Abby to go home to be with Jesus. Oh my! I sure hope that those inquirers have continued to follow your story; and that they see the JOY of the LORD shining through Abby's sweet smile.

You are BLESSED!!!
