Happy New Year!
I still can’t believe that it January 2007. It seems like yesterday that we were all scurrying around town to get water and batteries for Y2K. It seems like yesterday that Taylor was born, diagnosed, Logan was born and on and on. I guess it is true, time flies when you are having fun! I can’t say that all of it has been fun for obvious reasons, but many blessings have come out of it all. Like you all, I wouldn’t know most of you without this sight. Now I assure you I wish we had all met over a website for a better topic, but I am still blessed to have you all in my life, our lives!
Today was another good one. Logan was up fairly early, but I stayed in bed unitl 9:20. I was not asleep, but just laying there all snuggled up. We watched football and hung out at home until it was time to go to Nana’s house for our New Years lunch. I guess I wont be getting rich this year since I skipped the turnip greens. Yuck! Jim ate some, so maybe we will get rich off his helping. I did eat black eyed peas and they bring good luck! I just want a cure for cancer.
You all need to check out Christi’s page. As you may or may not know after her passing they took blood and attempted a cell line from her caner to use for research. There was only a 3% chance of it working, but it did in true Christi style. It has been aptly named, FU NB 2006. There was an article about her and her cell line in their local paper and her mom put it on their page. www.christithomas.blogspot.com Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they find the cure using her cell line!
We had fun at Nana’s. We had a yummy lunch minus the turnips. Logan was tired and grumpy and fell to pieces on several occasions. He finally fell asleep in Guh’s lap. Taylor was mad too and was grumpy, but quickly got over his troubles and had fun playing legos and just being silly with the big boys. Time flew by and it was soon nearing 5:00 and we had to go. We headed for home where we swapped presents with Christian. Logan was still asleep, but once he was awake he was thrilled with his tractors and monster truck. Taylor was excited from the get go about his power ranger with 3 faces!
We are now gearing down for the evening. Both boys have a dental appointment tomorrow. I forgot to go get Taylor’s xrays from Children’s, so hopefully he will make due without them. I don’t see why he needs them from 3 years ago when he is going to do all new ones. Of course, I am not the dentist! This will be Logan’s first trip and I hope it goes well. We will have a break in between and then go back for Taylor’s appointment. I hope it goes smooth. This is his first trip to our family dentist rather than the clinic at Children’s. He has gone with me to my visits for years, so it shouldn’t be that big of a deal for him. He is a little worried about him pulling his tooth, but I assured him they won’t. He better not! Please pray that his permanent teeth were not affected by chemo and he will not need work done. I know that is a small price to pay for his overall health, but it is not a small price to pay based on what he has already been through and missing school and shelling out the money to fix any problems. We will get through whatever it is!
I will update with the results tomorrow. As always, thank you all for all your prayers and support over the years. We couldn’t have made it without you. Here is to a great 2007 for all of us!!!! Please be in prayer for Evan as he heads back to St. Jude. www.caringbridge.org/visit/evanthomason Pray for Janie’s family as her angelversary comes up on the 4th. www.caringbridge.org/al.janiesims Pray for all the kids out there who are fighting this beast. Pray that those who have reached NED can stay there and a cure is found soon!
