So, on Monday, we found out my little niece has lukemia. We are so bummed. She is just Charity's age, and so sweet and beautiful. We are all praying for her.
Anyways, we decided to ship her something (but the hospital doesnt allow plants or flowers?) so after searching online, i came across a GREAT teddy bear site. a LOT less expensive than vermont teddy bear, and i LOVE that you can personalize so many things on it! in an email i just got, they said they upgraded my shipping and are refunding me money for it too! they said, please tell friends about us, so, i am doing it.

This is mambo, and he will have a tshirt that says jillian's feel better monkey and a sunshine on it.
As for my neice, (and my sis-in-law's family) they are in for a long hard journey, and we hope it all turns out ok.

All this makes me pause and think about how much i love my children. Patrice (my sis-in-law) is the best mom in the world. her kids are amazing and beautiful. they are one of those families that you just see how loving and amazing they all are... anyways, there is such a long road ahead of them... as parents, we would all be willing to go to the ends of the earth and back to save our child. i just cant imagine the fear and heart ache they must be feeling right now. We are all praying for you guys!

Emily so Horrible. I also pray everything goes ok. I had a cousin with a daughter a year old that fought it for 3 years. And we are so blessed to say she is Cancer free, hopefully it never returns. Good Luck. I hope you are all doing good. You are a great mom. And have such a wonderful sister, Dawn. Your Mom and Dad raised an Awesome family.

Wow Emily, I am so sorry. How old is your niece? My cousin had three types of leukemia when he was 8 years old. He is now in his early twenties and cancer free. Even though I don't know her, I will make sure to pray for her. Love ya Em!

Poor baby girl. A mother's worst fear. I can't imagine. Jared's cousin was diagnosed this time last year and he's doing great, I hope Jillian does too!
