I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

almost hairless!

Kristen might have a strand or two of hair left on her head. I think i can see maybe 3 little eyebrow hairs left. She is so cute! She is a girl of ROUTINE! Every morning (The ones when we are home from the hospital) she puts on her make-up, brushes her teeth and all the stuff girls do. Today I was watching her and she sprayed 'No more tangles' on her bald little head. It ran down her face...but she didn't seem to mind. She got the brush and brushed away at her little head. She loves to wear hats and bows. Her sister, Katy makes the cutest bows in town! And of course Kristen has many. She has these cute little stretchy headbands and the bows are detachable. They are amazing! We were able to come home from the hospital yesterday. We have to go back on Friday to get the second half our her treatment. We will probably be there for 3-4 weeks. I am NOT looking forward to it. Kristen and I love sleeping home in our cozy beds. Or I should say bed...Richard has surrendered his bed to Kristen. We moved her bed in our room and now Richard sleeps in Kristen's bed and Kristen sleeps with me. Sometimes at night I have to gently put my hand on her back to make sure she is still breathing. I've got to admit it is nice to have the privacy of my own bathroom and not the public one at the hospital. I am thankful for my own shower! It's funny how you miss things like your own bathtub. Don't get me wrong, It is wonderful that the hospital has a parent shower and laundry room and a fold out chair for me to sleep on...It just isn't quite the same. I am thankful that I can stay with Kristen in her room. Say a little prayer for her!
