Guess What Sucks?

Don't you think? Our cute Aunt Liz started her chemo. FINALLY none of us were sick, so we went to see her yesterday. I never saw anyone look so cute with a shaved head! She reminds me so much of my mom, even more so now, when my mom had breast cancer she just kept smiling and said, "I'm gonna be just fine!" Now Liz says that. I was rubbing her back and her head, and even her little shaved hairs were falling out in my hands. I just wanted to burst into tears!
Liz's daughter Heather has a cute 1 1/2 year old girl and a brand new 2 week old baby. Oh, and a brain tumor. SUCK. And the new baby has been in the hospital with blood problems. And this isn't Heather's first bout with a brain tumor either!
Everything on my mind is worry, worry worry. I love them all so much and I just want everything to be ok. I am thankful for my health and my healthy kids. Oh, so very thankful.
So that's what's going on in our neck of the woods. We're circling our wagons and staying together and positive.
Please keep Liz, Heather, and baby Hazel in your thoughts. Heather will have her surgery on Feb. 19th.
We need every good vibe we can get!

It's unreal how some families can be hit with so many trials. BUT, I'm sending all my positive energy your way. Love you!

I still can't believe they've been hit with all these trials at once. It's just not fair! I know they will pull through. Thank goodness for family and friends that can help, love, and support during these times!

My sweet Piper. My heart goes out to you and your family. I know that medicine can do wonderful things, as can the love and prayers from family and strangers alike. Miracles happen. I know it. I love you!!
