On this most special of days I want to thank all the Mothers for their part in our lives. My mom (Stella) has helped to make me the Christian man that I am. I also thank Tonny and Carol in the part they played in making Dee who she is. And for Dee....I thank God for her and who she has become. The anchor in the storm we are in. Everything seems to go through her. The trials with Jesse, McKenzie's school work, Dakota growing into a woman, Lindsay's sounding board and all of my needs and what I go through with work. She is the "grounding rod" for all of us.
Every Mother plays this special roll in their families lives. We are such a product of how we are raised and that makes it even more important for us as parents be the roll model for our children. Thank you all so much for helping us be who we are.
Jesse is on dose #3 of Chemo. Her feet hurt really bad and feel like they are on fire (like when your feet are thawing out from being really cold). That is a side affect of the Cyterabine. She was throwing up a lot yesterday but Dee thinks it's because of the Magnesium they had to give her. We are all just gritting our teeth and praying things don't get to bad for our baby during this last round. She is so wore out of being in pain and sick that we just want it all to stop.
It's really lonely here at the house now with Jesse back in the Hospital and Dee in there for two days at a time. Jo will go in Tuesday through Thursday and I go in Friday. Thanks to Matt for taking Saturday. He and Megan kept her company all day Saturday so we hope she had fun.
God bless you all for all of your support and prayers. Have a great Mothers day.
