Life Update


Thought I would update since I haven't done so in a while. We've been fairly busy here at our house. We had Ava's party a few weeks ago now and then it just seems like the time flies. We didn't get the news that we wanted on Ethan's scans, so we are pluggin away this week and starting a new drug that came out. We pray that this one works. It's kind of our "plan B" as his platelets were too low to start the one we really wanted him on. We just take things a day at a time. Ethan is doing very well. He definitely doesn't run like he used to, but he has no complaints and isn't in any pain. He's actually taken up a new hobby....fishing. Our good friend has taken him twice now in our neighbor's pond. It has been so fun for him. The pond is loaded so basically all you have to do is drop in a line and you have a fish! Here are some pictures from that day.

I haven't been doing much stamping at all, I'm fighting a cold right now so I haven't really felt up to it. I have stamp club this week so I better get busy....that is usually the only thing I stamp for nowadays. I get such nice little notes from everyone and I really appreciate them. We just have been keeping busy with doing everyday things and I haven't really had a lot of time to post lately.

Hope all of you are having a good weekend....it is a rainy one where we live, but supposed to be sunny and in the 70's this week! Til next time!

Always thinking of Ethan and your family. God is great and he listens to us; so, we will all just continue to pray for Ethan health. And I also pray for you to continue strong and keep being our inspiration. Lots of hugs to Ethan and ALL your family.

I have been thinking about you the last couple of days and wondering how things were going and when I read your comment on Kristins blog I decided to hop on over here!!!

Yea for our girl Kristin I am so happy for her!!! When I found her blog she had 137 hits and had been blogging for a couple of months and then I found you through her and Lauren.
