Baby girl has been a sick little thing this week so I have not been on line very much. She has been fighting a fever that has been right at 105 several times. We go to the doctors office again on Monday so hopefully we will know more about what is going on once we go. If you would, please say a prayer that she gets over whatever this is pretty quickly as she is not herself at all and I miss my baby girl!!!

We did make it out to Duke toward the end of last week and took them a CAR LOAD of toys! They were very grateful and most of the toys went to use as soon as they were taken out of the box. We were very pleased with the toy drive and the Camp K outcome. It was a wonderful way to celebrate Chayse's first year of life!!! Duke sent us a very sweet thank you note this week for all of the donations so from Duke to us to you, thank you!!!

Other than that, not too much has been going on. We had a wonderful Mother's Day. It was quite but fun. Nathan and Chayse got me a new camera and I LOVE it! Now I just need to fugure out how to use it!! It is a canon 50D and is a little over my head still but I am learning how to use it! Chayse and I played outside in her little blow up pool. We set it up three weeks ago and she LOVES it! She thinks it is the neatest thing!! I thought about Hope a lot that day and how different our life would be had she lived. It is hard to soak in Mother's Day... I am so lucky that my mother was able to go into remission from cancer and that she is still here with me so that I can celebrate her. I wish Nathan was able to see his mom on Mother's Day but the distance makes traveling so far with a little one and being pregnant a little difficult (it is too far to be from my doctors at this point) so I felt bad for him not to be able to see her on Mother's Day. I love that I was able to spend my second Mother's Day with Chayse and how special that was. I was sad that Hope was not here with us. Mother's Day was the last time that I saw my Daddy as my Daddy... his brain tumor started bleeding just two days after Mother's Day and he was never of the same mental status again. It is just a flurry of different emotions and it is hard to sort them out. I know time makes things easier but there are some days that are just plain hard and Mother's Day is one of them.

I am so touchd by your blog. Thank you for sharing. I will pray for your little one, that God will reach down and heal her, that God will protect you and little boy from any illness, that he will uplift you in all ways, and comfort you in those moments when you grieve for baby Hope.

God Bless you and your family,
