The last month has been fairly stable, however, her WBC and CRP have elevated over the last 2 months without any explanation. Since she doesn't feel any worse, we will just be waiting on her scans on Sept.28. She saw the facial plastic surgeon Monday, and the surgery for both her eyes and mouth/chin region will be on October 25. She is not looking forward to this as most procedures like this just don't go well  for her. She also doesn't heal very quickly. She is praying that this one will...

Another three months have passed. Karly had the biopsies in May. The stomach one didn't show cancer, but very bad eosinophilic disease. The GI doctor wasn't exactly convinced that this was all that was happening, but because the cells weren't showing cancerous, he decided to treat with a steroid for 6 weeks, then get another CT to check. If the CT showed worsening, another deeper biopsy would be performed. The CT on July 2 didn't show worsening, but didn't get better either. At this point, she...

A couple things have struck me through my devotional reading. The first being how our mind focuses on things. It is a choice whether we see the darkness or the light. I know I hear the negative thing and even play through my mind what this could mean, but ultimately, I turn my mind to Jesus. Thankfulness is the key for bringing the darkness into light for me. When you look around or think about all that is around you, you can find countless things to be thankful for. If I stay focused on "...

I have been in a state of not knowing what to post, and since I rely on God to give me what to say, I felt like I shouldn't be writing. I don't know if there is such a thing as a quick update but since November here is what has been happening. We had a marvelous Thanksgiving and Christmas AT HOME! Karly did keep getting sicker through Nov. and Dec. Karly was sleeping a lot with very little energy. Her lungs seem to just get bogged down with bacteria then she kinda shut down. She cannot be on IV...

It's been 6 weeks since I last posted. Karly's life has been a roller coaster, so I've not known what to post about her health. Sometimes the reality of this disease just escapes me..., we believe that...

Time is flying by. Time is so precious. Where does it go? Why does it go by so quickly? What ultimately is our goal for the time we have on earth? I think we know what our purpose is, but what about "the time"? I was challenged a few weeks ago about how we look at healing. One of the thoughts that stayed with me was how easily we will spend 3-4 hours watching a football game, but how hard it is for us to spend 3-4 hours praying for healing. I have begun "My Healing Devotional" by Dr. Terry...

I was typing in the number of days today and was really amazed and mortified at the number of days Kelsey has been gone from us. Thankfully, it doesn't seem like that long. We reminisce so often and reflect everyday about her...maybe that is what makes her feel close to us. I still can see her at home in her room, the family room, and especially the kitchen. She loved eating and watching movies. Our trip to Alaska was our first family vacation without her, but she would have loved that trip...

Karly and I have been at NIH since Thursday night. Things haven't gone as smoothly as we would have hoped, but I am figuring that everything is to the "Glory of the Lord". Today things are starting to settle in. I'm in a new room,...

Wow, I sure did let a lot of days pass since my last post. So, what has been happening? Karly and I flew to Maryland on July 14 to attend Reid's Memorial Service just prior to her hospital treatments. Tracy and the girls drove out. The service was honoring to him and his family. Of course it was emotional, but so good to see many family members. We were cared for by Debbie and Ridge's friends for meals, and special events...bonfire, horse riding, and swimming. Konner and Kassidy were able to...
