Tonight when we left, Lillian passed out before we even go in the taxi. Poor baby is so tired. We decided she should stay with me tomorrow until after nap time and then we would go to the hospital. My mom and Jackie will go when they are ready in the morning.

Lillian is doing very well with everything but does ask for her mommy and gets very excited when she sees with Myers or Laura. She's still very entertaining and creative and constantly surprises us with all the things she comes up with or remembers. Last night when we were leaving the hospital she looked at me and said, "Patrick [my husband] miss you." I melted my heart that she thinks about me and him. She cares about all of us so much and we all love her to pieces. Laura has a list of things she's been saying we will post later on.

Laura was discharged so tonight she and Myers will be sleeping in a tiny closet/room with a bed in it at the hospital and hopefully tomorrow move over to the Ronald McDonald house. Next week we should be able to establish a little bit more of a routine and I know that will help all of us out.

Right now Gwenyth is going through a critical time. Dr. Spray told us this afternoon that about 8-12 hours after her surgery she might have a low time when her body really processes the surgery and all the changes. 12 hours is at midnight so she is half way through it.

Please pray for Gwenyth, especially in the next two days. Also pray for Myers and Laura, who are almost dead on their feet, that they will remember to take care of themselves and lean on all of us to help them.


  1. Thanks so much for the update Becca! I know you being there to care for Lillian is a huge blessing to Myers and Laura. Sending lots of prayers and hugs to all of you!

  2. Glad to hear she's doing so well :) She's a special little girl! Give her some kisses from us, please :)

  3. If it is possible I think I love Lillian even more. She is going to be the best sister ever.

  4. I don't know any of you personally, but my son works with Myers. He shared your story with me. I am thinking of you all and praying that Gwen does well with all of her treatment. What a wonderfully strong support system you seem to have. That is so important. Good thoughts coming your way.....Judi Schuster


Ten years loom and as always seems to be the case, I find myself struggling the most in the days ahead of the anniversary  - be it her birt...
