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!

a quick update

A quick update on Kristen...She spiked a fever tonight which means blood cultures and antibiotics.  She was feeling really awful all day today. The chemo drug ARA-C that she is receiving is famous for causing fevers, however, because her infection fighting cells are gone the docs can take no chances, so she is being treated as though she has an infection.  Her blood pressure was 80/37, so she is also receiving extra fluids to try to get it up.
