The Not So Great Adventure


Otherwise know as our life some days.  Today sucked.  That's all I got.

Tomorrow will be better...I pray.  An unplanned day at St. Jude awaits us, as we try to figure out why Lucy is so emotional right now.  She's a time bomb waiting to explode.  And when it happens, it's not pretty.

Please say a prayer for her.  I think she's finally starting to deal with a lot of what's happened to her and she's not handling it well.  Who can blame her?  We had a breakthrough tonight, though.  In her words "its just not fair."

But we will be strong.  We are going to focus on the positive.  We are going to look to God for strength and clarity.  Tomorrow is a new day, brimming with hope and optimism.

 "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." Psalms 55:22

  3. I am so sorry to hear about Lucy being so emotional. Just from personal experience I know that any time there is an illness in the brain your hormones can get thrown off and that plus sucky circumstances can equal a really grouchy demenor.
    Praying that God will fill Lucy up tonight with love, peace, and the understanding only He can bring!

  4. Lucy has gone through more than most adults in an entire life. It is not surprising she is emotional and acting out feelings. It isn't fair a child has to face all this--but sadly this is part of Lucy's life you all are having to deal with. I pray you and her Doctors will find words to help her and calm her. Maybe this is a good sign--she is stronger and older so she feels and sees things that before she just did not have the strength to even notice. Prayers for Lucy and your entire family as you face all these new questions and feelings...

  7. Bless your heart as her broken-hearted mother, & bless her sweet heart, too. God will be waiting for you at St. Jude tomorrow when you get there, & will never leave your side. May you feel His awesome presence, & may He hear our prayers. What a tough lesson for a little girl so young to have to endure. I'm sure those talented men & women at St Jude will have some answers for you.
    Thank you for sharing your girl, & your family.

    Blessings & love,
    Selena

  11. I will be praying for Lucy today! Especially this verse I recently found... Psalm 57:3

    "He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on
    me. Selah God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!"
    Praying for His steadfast love and faithfulness to be sent out to you ... and quickly!

  12. AAAhhh - Poor Baby!!! She's right....It's NOT fair!!! None of it is BUT she is one of the few lucky ones even though I'm sure at times it's very difficult to believe that. She has been blessed with returned health and I am so grateful she has!!! Please give her a hug from me & tell her she is still my hero...even if she is angry and sad. Sending you a hug too Kate as I'm sure this is hard for you as well. I think trying to be positive will lighten the mood and air quite a bit!!!
    God Bless You All!!!
    Love.

  14. I'm so sorry Lucy is having a tough time. There is no doubt that she has more to deal with than anyone should (much less a child). I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts as always. Hope all goes well at St Jude's.

  17. She's so right - it's not fair. I'm less than a week into a breast cancer diagnosis and as I grapple with my fears and worries, a little girl named Lucy comes to mind and that brave little girl gives me courage. I pray I will handle this with half the strength that Lucy has shown.

  18. I am a breast cancer survivor of almost seven years and some time after all treatments were over, I experienced a similar reaction. When you get through the crisis, and although you are very thankful, the "numbness" begins to subside, you realize you have a new and challenging reality to deal with, for the rest of your life, and the range of emotions can be overwhelming. I saw a Christian counselor who helped me tremendously to move forward in a healthy way. Will be praying for Lucy and your family, as you seek God's wisdom and healing in ALL areas!

  20. Lucy you are totally right! It's not fair what you had to go through so early in your life, it's really not. But you are so strong Lucy! So much stronger than cancer and I know that you will get through this hard time even stronger than you are now. You are always in my heart and in my prayers,
    Lots of Love,
    Lauren

  21. Oh Kate, this breaks my heart as I am sure it does yours and your families as well. Poor Lucy has just gone through so much that no one deserves to go through and Never our babies. She is such a strong little girl, but what I gather from this blog she has two very strong parents/ and families to guide her. Some days I feel her pain as I am a chronic pain patient and have been living in constant pain for 10 years now and there are so many days when I get angry and ask "WHY ME"? Then I try to look around and see someone who is much worse off than I am and it helps me to be Thankful for the way I am, not pity myself, but I have many years on Lucy and she doesn't deserve this, she is so RIGHT. I am hoping that someone will be able to guide you to help her to see how far she has come and how many people she has touched in so many ways. I am sure that she probably doesn't care about that at this point but when she is 20 she will be so proud of all the lives she has touched through her Mom's love and hard work. I wish you Luck Kate, I am sure that you will find just the PERFECT words to help her get through this.

    Oh Kate, it breaks my heart to hear that Lucy is having a hard time. She is so young that of course she is feeling this way (I think all people who survive some sort of major illness do). I hope that she can figure a way to eventually come to terms with this all. Just know that we are all still praying for your darling Lucy and that we never will stop! Give her hugs from Wisconsin!
