Confronted with my first post it's a little hard to know where to start. I feel like I should all of a sudden be endowed with the ability to think of creative and witty titles and and write with flair and intelligent vocabulary. Let me say right now, up front, that even at my best I don't have those abilities, and at the moment, I'm struggling to string a sentence together. But of course my aim here is not to amuse but to share and inform.
As you know, our lives have recently been rocked by Lucy Joy's diagnosis of leukemia. I will attempt in this blog to fill you in a little on how things are going, things that we are doing, thinking, struggling with or triumphing through, things you can pray for and be thankful for. Thank you for coming on this journey with us, it is wonderful and overwhelming to know all the support we are receiving, and we want to be able to communicate with you well. Please forgive me for when I'm not good at keeping you up to date, but please keep sending messages, doing whatever your circumstances allows you to do - listening, talking, hugging, crying, laughing, cooking, playing with children or praying. We appreciate all these things (and many others too!) more than we can say.
This picture was taken on Tuesday, the day before we came to hospital to start treatment. What a treasure!
