Thank you so much!!!! We are excited.

Yes you are right about the good in the world. That has been the positive part of Lucas' disease. We have been blessed by so many special people and how the Lord has allowed them to be in our lives. We were eating at a restaurant right before Lucas was starting his chemo and a lady oveheard us talking about it and a total stranger put $60.00 in his pocket and said put this toward a Ninetendo DS he will need that during his chemo. It is amazing running across these special people. And also this board. It has been amazing getting to know people on these boards and just kind words that people share and they right just make your day.

So thanks for sharing!!

Here is a picture of Lucas with his principal the day that his school presented Make A Wish a donation in his honor.

It truly was a very special day. But the funny thing about the whole day was the entire school was so excited about collecting the money and so was Lucas. Little did he know that it was for him. He was very surprised at the assembly when they made the announcement. We are very blessed to be a part of such a great and caring school.

oh, that is so awesome! He got to be sponsored by his school! It doesn't get much better than that!

Lauren was able to be the chair for the MAW collections at her high school this year and it was a highlight for her to be able to give back.

How cool!

I am finally getting caught up on all of my trip and pre-trip reports!! I am enjoying reading yours! And I agree...illness can bring the best out in people. The Lord works in the hard stuff, too...and sometimes we see it more clearly in the hard stuff.

We are so blessed to be such a part of a caring school. They have really got behind Lucas and our family and have supported us so much.

Lucas loved that you noticed his train shirt. It was wonderful surprise for Lucas when our MAW volunteer had brought it with her. She said MAW was going through Lucas' information and read how much he loved trains and they had some extra shirts and sent one down for Lucas and one for this brother. Needless to say he has wants to wear it about everyday.

Yes that was the shirt that we got. It was so funny trying to explain to him why I was buying the shirt and why he was to wear it to school that day. It was Mickey so I did not have to say much.

As someone was sharing in their PTR it is like waiting for Christmas. We can not wait until we hear from our dates.

Hey there!!

Lauren and I are going to be in Nashville this weekend meeting one of the DISers that I am planning to go to Disney with in Sept 2010.

We are going to do some shopping and swimming and lots of eating out!

I went to one semester of nurse practitioner school at Vanderbilt...I love that place. I am sure you guys probably don't like it so much now.

Actually we love the place but we do get tired of seeing it so much. I reminded Lucas that tomorrow was chemo day and he said ALRIGHT!!. He just loves his doctor and his nurse. They treat him so special there. Most people are amazed at how Lucas gets excited about going to his treatment. He is at the point that he helps flushes his port and everything. He gets involved with it. They tease him that he would be a great nurse one day.

We love going to Nashville. It is about a 2 hour drive from our home. My husband always says he can see himself living there one day. I love shopping in Nashville!!! and eating but I love eating anywhere.

Have a wonderful trip!! Enjoy yourself.
