Prayer requests

I’ll be back later with a longer post but I just wanted to let you know that Brock has an eye doctor appointment today and a spinal tap tomorrow.

The eye dr appt is b/c he has some blindness in his right eye b/c of the fungal infection. The antifungal drug that he’s been on for over 2 years can also damage the eyes. Praying for a good report this afternoon.

The spinal tap is just part of his chemo protocol.

Thank you for praying with us. We love you and are so thankful for you!

Disney Pictures!

We’re home from Disney World!!

Please forgive me for not telling you before we left.  I’m kind of nutso paranoid about strangers on the intrawebs knowing when we’re out of town.

The trip was, in a word, perfect. Really. Thank you for praying for us! The kids stayed healthy. They had a fantastic time. Traveling with three littles was not nearly as daunting as I thought it would be.

I could go on and on with details but for now I’ll just leave you with some pictures. Because, really, that’s more fun anyway.


There’s LOTS more but my computer kind of freaked out so I’ll go ahead and post these before I lose them….

Sickies, trips, and pics

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 6:50 pm

Hope you all had a Happy New Year! We’re so thankful to be starting a new year with all 5 (five!!) members of our family. We’ve had so many friends lose their precious children and being able to start another year with all three of our babies is definitely not something we take for granted.

Brock’s Make A Wish trip to Disney World is coming up soon! He is SO excited. He had a doctors appointment last week and he told every person he saw that he was going to see Mickey and give him high fives. (Let’s hope that’s the case and that he’s not terrified of all the characters.) Jaycie is, of course, beside herself with excitement as well. Jay and I are just so thrilled to be able to spend an entire week with our little family.

Brock’s doctor’s appointment last week went well. He’s had a cold for several weeks now (that he lovingly shared with Reese) and his blood work showed that his immune system was a little low (his AGC was 1000). Please pray with us that Reese and Brock get healthy and stay healthy for our trip. We’re praying specifically that Brock has no fevers while we’re in Florida – if he does we’ll have to make a trip to an ER. This might sound trivial, but we’re also praying for good weather!

I’ll leave you with pictures. Partly because I don’t know how to wrap this up and partly because no post feels complete without pictures.

Ugh. I’m not smart enough to use a Mac. I’ll be back later with the pictures.
