The story of Emma's journey of neurofibromatosis brain tumors and blindness.
Wednesday, November 12, 2014
In a week where we are still recovering from daily doctor appointments I am looking to all our recent blessings. The good MRI results, an upcoming Disneyland trip thanks to our friends at ABC News, Christmas and our Hawaii trip. There is certainly a lot to be thankful for these days. Happy times ahead make the day to day struggle a little easier. I am realizing, however, that I might need some regular help around here. Each week I seem to have at least one errand that an immune compromised Emma cannot go along which is always a Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm kinda deal. I also find myself drained not just physically from all the running around but spiritually and emotionally as well with no reprieve. I am putting it out to all of you that if you or someone you know can commit to babysitting one day a week during the day for just a couple hours that would be amazing. This person would need to have no young children of their own to bring along, be in good health and cancel if she feels even a hint of an illness coming on. In my head I have an idyllic picture of adopting a Grandma! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a lead please.
