Britt and the Bunny

When Brittany and I left the hospital we stopped by Walmart to drop off all of her perscriptions. The Bunny just happened to be there while we were there, so I snapped a quick picture of her with it. My children asked how they could thank Jesus for dying on the cross for them, they said He is not here for us to hug! I let them know that all they had to do was tell Him thank you when they pray. They were so precious! They both cried as they prayed, and I felt so touched to know that my children are already feeling Christ move on their hearts! Isn't HE wonderful! He gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we might know HIM!

Happy Easter!

I tried to snap a few pictures of us after church. It was quite chilly Easter morning. We were going to my mother in laws for lunch and we were all about to go in and change clothes. We didn't get alot of pictures but here is one of myself and the kids.

Brittany is Home!

Brittany has been in the Children's Hospital for the past week. The week before she ran high fevers at night every night and then Friday started a rash. The rash got worse over Saturday and then Sunday morning her joints started to swell and turn blue. She was admitted soon after we arrived. They were afraid of Leukemia. Her platelets were so low. We knew that she had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. She was not currently on any medicine for it. After going through many tests and biopsies, they determined she also has Crohn's Disease. All of her test results are not back in but they did release her today after starting her back on low dose chemotherapy drug Methotrexate. She also received her first IV therapy drug Remicade. She will return every 8 weeks for the IV therapy. Possibly for several years. I want to thank you all for all of your prayers. Please continue to pray for her as some of the side effects are not nice. I am going to post a few pictures of her during her stay. Love, Lisa
