My beautiful niece Gracie was recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (cancer). It is still early in the diagnosis and we are awaiting results to know more about the fight that Gracie will face. I've created this blog as an outlet for friends and family to stay informed about her journey and a way for friends and family to make anonymous contributions towards her care and the mounting expenses her family will face. Gracie is a fighter and the bravest 3 year old I know. Hundreds of people love you Gracie and are praying for you. "Be strong and of good courage for the Lord thy God is with thee" Joshua 1:9

Homesick

Today I am really homesick. I miss my kids and Brandon. I hate that my little Von is learning to say so many words, and I am not there! I am just feeling kinda down and I think that's ok sometimes. It is just overwhelming at times and I am so glad she is doing well or it would be a lot harder. Sometimes I feel like people have forgotten us but I know that there are still so many out there praying and thinking of Gracie. I don't know what we would do without our great families. We have no family close by, they all have to fly or drive two days, but they have been there the last 11 months. Especially my mom. I'm so grateful she is retired nd able to be there so much, how much harder it would be without that blessing!! I feel bad asking others to help and then get discouraged when some don't offer the help that is needed. I will be so glad when all of the traveling is done with in a few months. It has been a long 11 months. It is still hard. We are accustomed to it so in a way it is easier but the emotional part is taxing. I think I need some sleep!! Lol ;) I don't want to sound ungrateful but I'm just feeling kinda forgotten and wishing I could do more.

  2. You are not forgotten here either! Our Mary prays for your sweet Gracie every night. Our family did not get to know your family real closely before all this, so we don't want to intrude on your privacy, but you are always in our prayers. We would love to help in any way possible, so if you ever need anything, please call. Keep your chin up, you are doing a great job.

  6. You're right, it is ok to feel down sometimes. At least for me, sometimes a good cry really does make me feel a bit better. We have not forgotten you, and pray for you often. I follow your updates on FB continuously, so grateful that you are good about keeping us all informed. We love you.
