It's Done

Just left the house.  Headed to start the next phase of this journey.  Leaving Ella and Jack was one of the hardest things I've ever done.

  1. You're in our prayers. Among many other prayers, I am praying that as hard as this is now, when it is all over it is but a 'blip' on the screen of the life of your family. Peace, blessings, and healing for all of you, especially little Lucy.

  6. I am praying for you as you begin this part of the journey to Lucy being healed. I know leaving your other two children was gut wrenching, but I also know there will be ways that you will get to see them. If you don't have Skype, please get someone to help you set it up. It will help. However, the one most important place for you to get help is from Almighty God. With Him, nothing is impossible. Nothing. Praying for you all. Cynthia

  9. Hi Kate,
    I know you don't know me, but I've been following your family's story for a few months now (I stumbled across here through the friend of a friend's blog). I just want you to know I've been praying for healing for Lucy and strength for your family and will certainly continue those prayers as you start this new chapter! May God bless and keep you!

  12. Long-time reader, first time commenting. My heart is heavy for you as you leave Ella and Jack... It must be heartbreaking!!! I'll be praying specifically for you and your family as y'all are separated. I've been thinking a lot about how you've been given so little time to prepare for this long separation and wondering why God chose to allow it to happen that way. I was thinking how angry I would've been with the doctors, the hospital, or whoever dropped the ball about communicating that your home was too far to be outpatient after chemo and that you would need to remain at St. Jude for the next four months... But then The Holy Spirit seemed to show me that God chose to give you that time to enjoy your family, your home, your kids, your friends, your life -- without having to worry about the upcoming separation and not planning out every detail of the next four months. Rather, you were able to live in the moment and enjoy it to the fullest. I'm so thankful you take the time to blog your experiences as they happen. What an awesome way to see the hand of God at work -- both in your lives and in the lives of others.
