Just To Say Thanks

We have nothing extra-ordinary to post today. We just wanted to take an opportunity to say thanks. It seems like our world moves so fast, and there are so many life altering events that catch our attention. Sometimes it's easy to forget about other peoples' situations unless it is in front of you every day. We have been fortunate not to have that happen with Kerstin. It's four months after her diagnosis now, and we are still blessed to have people (some we have never met before) still reaching out to us with offers to help in any way needed. So, to all of you who read this blog (and to all who don't as well), we just wanted to make sure you know that all of your prayers, well wishes, and gifts are greatly appreciated.

As for Kerstin, she is loving life without her central line and seems to be adjusting to her new chemo meds just fine. She is also very excited to be going back to school this Wednesday.

Thanks for checking in on her. We hope you all have a blessed week.

Kerstin,
Wow! I'm so excited that you're ready to go back to school. I bet you're excited to see all your friends. Does that mean mom has to go back to school too? I bet her fourth graders are excited about that too.

Kerstin -

Have a GREAT day at school tomorrow! I'm sure everyone is as excited to see you as you are to see them. Have fun and celebrate all your accomplishments these last couple months.

Love and many gentle hugs -
