Moving Right Along

Sorry we didn't update you all sooner. Lisa was fine on Tuesday. Surprisingly, despite having a nose bleed in the morning, all of her blood counts were A-OK. That meant a Motts Free Day and is a positive sign that chemo may start next week as scheduled.

We are gearing up for the start of school. Last night, we went to Thomas and Christina's Meet the Teacher. Lisa and Maranda handed out Lisa Bracelets (we had a new shipment of larges come in...if you don't have one, let us know).

I think it was the first time many of you have had a chance to see her since this all started. I hope seeing her lifted your spirits. It's much easier to believe miracles can happen when you see her bouncing around and know what she is fighting. It was a wonderful feeling going to school and feeling so surrounded by love. The school and all you readers are our village, and as you know, it takes a village to raise a child. Whether that child be Maranda, Thomas, Christina, Lisa or any other child, without all of you...our neighbors, friends, family, co-workers, blog readers...helping, thinking and praying for us, we would not be able to stay strong and face each day.

So once again...thank you, thank you thank you!!!!!!! Keep praying and keep living every day to the fullest!
