Hi everyone - so i am officially 1 week and 1 day from my first treatment - and i am feeling pretty normal now!!!! Yea!!!! Other than some annoying, lasting little side effects, everything has gotten a lot better. So it looks like i will be yuck for 1 week and good for 2 - not bad right? i taught for the first time yesterday and it was great to see some of my kids! I miss them and i miss teaching - not to sound trite but you don't know what you got til it's gone!

i wanted to thank some families for their help this past week - The L'il Peeps moms have been so generous and amazing - THANK YOU. Tad, Coop and i appreciate your help through the tough times! Thank you to some First Savings friends and staff. We feel so lucky to have Tad work where there is such understanding and compassion for our family. From sending home meals to phone calls - we feel so blessed! Also Debbie - thanks for being there for us - you have been such an amazing friend to us in so many ways - but to be able to call on you on the tough days is more than i can say in words! Mary Kate - you have been more than great from keeping Cooper on tough days, to getting Max some Pjs, to helping with the dreaded hair thing - you have been incredible - i couldn't do it without you! Sally Case - thanks for the book - i received it yesterday - and i think it is great to have other references. I am not dealing with a just a cold - and i want to know everything that i can. There are so many others that have sent meals and well wishes - and it means so much to us to have such support. "Thank You" just doesn't seem like enough!

Last and most important - to my Mom who has been putting us first for the last couple of months. I don't know how we would ever get through this with out you. You have taken care of me and my kids through the toughest time in our life. I love you and appreciate everything you have done and continue to do for all of us! XO

    Sam and Tad,
    I just wanted you all to know that we are praying for you. We have also put you on three different Sunday School Class/Choir & Orchestra prayer lists at our church. You have been prayed for by at least 150 people from Collierville, Tennessee! We will continue to pray.
    Love ya!

  2. Just to let you know that aunt Carolyn and Leon are thinking of you.
