So much happening.. :-)

Blood tests again tomorrow - the tension gets a tad higher even when I see Steven looking so well. It is wonderful to see him laugh, joke and smile and get on with life. I had a dream the other night that had me crying again when I told Frank about it in the morning. In the dream we were all sitting on the floor of the lounge chatting away, and obviously, the topic of the leukemia came up. At this, Steven changed from the young man he is now, to a little boy of around 5 years old - I just scooped him up under his shoulders and knees, held him and we cried together...... Oh boy. I did not bet much sleep after that. I am everlastingly thankful that he is as old as he is before getting leukemia - it must be a totally different thing with a child much younger and still at home.... But they I think we all deal with what we are give. As I said before, sometimes not dealing with it is a way of dealing with it and I do believe that when it comes to our children, the majority of us learn how to deal with it in a manner that benefits the 'child'.

He looks so good despite having this leukemia in his life. Ms Laura is going on a cruise with her family - she deserves a wonderful break like that! Tomorrow I will go with him to the doctor again - bloods to be drawn and consult with Doc J. before the visit to the specialist at Vanderbilt on the 14th of this month. I have a list of questions to ask him this time. So many people on the support groups have amazing help and suggestions - I dont know what I would do without them all!

AND!!! ............................. Billy T & Tom Signs of Chattanooga have given us an absolutely amazing price to do the motorhome wrap! The balance due is totally within our ability to raise this money - so this is really going to happen.............. Tomorrow (Friday) morning, we have to take the MH down there for more measurements and to bash out the details of what graphics are to go on there. They have given this fundraiser the face it needed and we are so grateful for their willingness to help us in this endevour. If anyone is ever in town - give them a call and a big Thank You as well!

AAAANND!!! is up and running and you are able to purchase artwork there now............ this is wonderful that this project has grown wings in such a short period of time. Penny, her family and friends and Adi (the webmaster) has done magic with this. I am SO proud to be a part of it all........ When you have a moment, go to the site, look around and check back regularly - we will be adding lots more artwork really soon.

I will update again after the doctor appointment tomorrow and the meeting with Billy T & Tom.
