Good News!

My sister is feeling much better today! If she even had any nausea at all, I know it did not compare to what she experienced yesterday. She sounded really good when I talked with her.

Thank you for your prayers!

Please pray...nausea (Updated)

I just talked with Miss. She's still in her chemo treatment, and she was feeling too sick and nauseous to talk. Please pray for her that she feels better. Thank you!

At 8:30 pm, I just called to check on Miss. Doug said that she has been vomiting and is still extremely nauseous since her chemo treatment today. I am very thankful that her friend Jocelyn is there helping with her family right now. We'd appreciate your continued prayers that the nausea lessens, and that she has peace now as she is dealing with it.

Thank you!

Chemo...Round 6

Missy's 6th round of chemo treatment will be this Tuesday. Please pray that it will be effective in healing the lymphoma and that it won't make her sick right now.

Thank you!

Getting settled!

We're in Indy!

Sorry for the delay in updating you, but no internet yet. I went to their local library to post this.

Everything went well with the closing on Friday. Since then, we've just been trying to do all the basic stuff...clean, unpack, arrange stuff, etc...

There have been lots of firsts for the kids that I'll hopefully be able to post pics of soon, such as first time playing in their own back yard and their first bike ride.

The neighbors have been so friendly and many of them came over and introduced themselves in the first couple days. There are many kids Lauren's and Caleb's age, which has always been fun to see. Lauren and her new friend, Emma, were doing chalk body outlines on the driveway right after meeting each other. That's a sure sign you're meant to be friends if you can do that! :)

I know my sister misses all of you in Dayton!

I will soon be wrapping up my time with her this week. As painful as it was for my husband and I to be apart, my time with Miss has really flown by. It's been crazy and hectic at times, but always good. I'll miss them incredibly!

Moving Today!

My sister has been tired through all the getting ready, but that is to be expected with someone going through chemo. All of this has been pretty exhausting for her, and she has just needed to take breaks and rest for a while. She's not been sick, and that's been really good right now. Except for a cold that she, Lauren, and Audrey have all had, Miss has been feeling pretty well.

So today's the day!

Everything is boxed up and ready to go. We'll be loading up and heading to IN in just a few hours. I can feel the bittersweetness of the move from my sister. After being here, I've seen first-hand the huge amount of support and many dear friends that she will be leaving. Thank you so much to everyone who has walked with her all this time! She's already looking forward to visits from you in IN!

I have many more pics I'd like to post and some other things to write, but it's hard to grab a minute! Hopefully I'll be able to soon though.
