In other news.....

My cute sister Heather had a baby girl two weeks ago! Her name is Claire Ann and she is so darling! We loved seeing her and holding her!

My brother Jake recently got engaged to beautiful Traci. They are super cute and we are so happy and excited for them. They were going to get married December 22, but they have moved the wedding up to October 24 to accomodate my moms "health problems."

My sweet Mother is not doing well. She has taken a real down turn over the past month and is now basically on pain killers 24-7. She has tried her last options of chemo but found that it was not worth being miserable in the bathroom for days and days on end. She sleeps a great deal of the time and has lost so much weight. We love her so much, it is hard to describe the many emotions and feelings that are going on right now. I just want to see her every day and be with her, but that is not always easy. Like my sister said, we now know what it is to have your heart breaking. My mom is forever my hero.

I'm just glad we have each other. This sucks more than anything in the world. Thanks for always being such a wonderful sister. There are still happy things going on like Claire and Jake and Tracy, but yes, my heart literally feels like it's breaking in half.

Jenny, I am so sorry that you have to go through this. I remember it well. It is a painful time but it is also the time in my life when I felt the Spirit closer than any other. I was so aware of a loving Heavenly Father and that he knew me, my mother and all of our needs. I will pray that you can feel that too. We love you all SO much.

Katie said...

I was wondering about your mom the other day. I am so sorry that you(your whole family) have to go through this trial. You have been so strong and amazing throughout and I am sure your mom really appreciates it. Let me know if I can do ANYTHING-even watch the girls for a day while you go and be with your mom while the boys are in school. Keep us updated
