Update and THANK YOU!

Hello fans and followers.  Its very early, because I am heading back to work today! Sorry, I’m a little behind on updating the Caring Bridge Site, but things have just been really busy! Actually very busy! But, I plan to update more tonight when I have sometime to do so, I hope, after the kids are down for the night!

Before anything, I want to say….THANK YOU!  And 50 times that and more.  The heart felt love, prayers, support and all that has been surrounding us during this journey that started only about a month ago has been absolutely amazing.  I am just overly amazed how people are just so AWESOME, that is the best way to subscribe it, because you all have been so amazing with all the support and love and donations.  I have to tell you all it is just amazing.  So many packages have been received for Emily and it was awesome while we were in the hospital for my husband to pick them up at the house and bring them, because they brought huge smiles to her face.  Things I never really thought about but the times that we are home, in between, there is just so much going on, the dinners that have been provided to us from friends, family and even Richmond Mommies mom’s have been awesome and seriously has made life so much easier.  I can’t begin to thank you guys enough for all the love and support you have given us and continue to do.

THANK  YOU

This will be a very long road for us and I know that, and all that you all do and especially yours prayers, support and love mean so much to us.  That is really all I could ask for because this journey is by far one of the hardest things as a mother, or just as an invidivdual had to go through.  Its hard and honestly, in laymen terms, its sucks and in kid’s terms, “It’s not Fair!” and it’s not.  But we are praying and thinking positive.

We did come home Sunday Morning from Emily’s first round of chemo and will be back in two weeks for a second round as long as she doesn’t get any fevers or any other problems.  We will have to follow up later this afternoon and then later this week to check her counts, but she is doing ok.  We are starting to notice some changes daily so as those changes take place,they become a little bit harder on us.  Her losing her hair is one that I’m not sure how she is going to react to, but again there are so many of  you out there that are making and sending her hats and I can’t tell you how much these things mean to us.

How can I say Thank You a million times and really reach out!  I hope you all know how many times that we have received something for Emily, or my other daughters or even my husband and I and have had tears in our eyes from the outpouring of love out there!  It is amazing, thank you!

Some facebook companies have asked that I post something about what is out there and while I feel weird doing this, I will.  But at the same time, I can honestly tell you, this is going to be a very long year for us.  VERY LONG and could even be longer.  While all I really ask for is lots and lots of prayers, because they mean so much to us, I know there are many of you out there that are doing more than that.  Here are a few that I know of because I have been in contact with them in one way or another:

Fabulous Family Reviews & Giveaways Raffle
Abby’s Lane Fundraiser, $100 GC
Diaper Style Auction Ad’s
There is a possibility that I have missed some, but just comment below with the link to them or even check out @Coupon Mommy of 3 Facebook, I know many are updating information there..  So many others did some prior for us and I just appreciate all that you all have been doing.  So, again, thank you!

Malia from Bumbledoo did an amazing job, Stephanie from Abby’s Lane is doing a great job, Poppin Dots Boutique, CCBaby and CC Bums did an amazing job and Diaper Style!  All I can say is seriously “THANK YOU!”  And while I know there are others, I don’t know all of them, so I just want to apologize if you were not listed.

Please remember, THANK YOU!  Emily and I have been working on “Thank You” Cards and many of you should start seeing them within a few weeks.  It gives her something to do at the hospital.

THANK YOU!
