We've been busy here doing our daily things. OT, PT, School, Radiation etc. Meanwhile our friends back home have been fighting just as hard for us to keep our house, pay our medical bills, and allow us to be here as a family to kick cancer in the booty!!! We continue to be amazed by the generosity of people we don't even know. You are all amazing. We can't thank you enough!!!!
This is a picture from the Epiphany Breakfast this past Saturday at our church in Novato, Good Shepherd Lutheran. Anthony's teacher (and she was Kayla's too!) Mrs. Beckmann had a HUGE hand in getting our flyers and info out to everyone there. (I LOVE the poster... so sweet!) People were so amazing and gracious. God Bless you all!!!!! Thank you to my amazing friend, Thalia and her daughter Megan for posing and showing us the love from home. Megan and Kayla have been friends since 2! We miss you so much!!! HUGS!
People and KIDS have been so incredibly supportive! From Mrs. Weiser's amazing Kindergarten class buying pins and donating to us...
Two gracious moms at Lu Sutton created Coins for Kayla and asked the kids to find loose change at home. The bucket was SO full that one of the dad's could barely carry it out! Every single kid at Lu Sutton participated. Thank you so much!!!!!!!
We are very honest with Kayla and tell her all the kind thinks people are doing to ensure we keep a roof over our head and for us to all be here together as a family. She sees me tearing up over it all the time. Kayla is already coming up with creative ways to try and give back. She is just like us... already wanting to find ways to pay back all the love. People are just amazing. I say it all the time, people ARE good!!! Thank you to all of the kids in Kayla's 2nd grade class for all the love! She reads her book that you all made over and over. We loved the video as well. You can imagine how much it means to us and can be such a GREAT distraction on the hard days.
I forgot to add this. This is Anthony climbing the rock wall at the museum on Monday.
After a long day, it's time to come home and relax. Kayla got her dressing changed. She continues to hate having this done. She despises the stinging and seeing the stitches. She puts her blankie on her head until it's all over. There is a lot of deep breathing involved. She told me it won't end until they are out! (and that will be once Chemo is over with).
Kayla is teaching Anthony poker. Denny continues to knit. I am still enjoying sharing our journey. Thank you for reading and being here to support us through it all. We are so forever grateful!!!!
