Our God is an AWESOME God!!!
He blessed me with the most PHENOMENAL blog friends who are more like siblings now.
As Hallie said, you don't know the power of people praying for you en masse until you've experienced it!
From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each and everyone who prayed, held good thoughts, sent us strength, called and emailed/blogged on Kiereney's behalf. I have no doubt in this world that had it not been for you, this weekend would have been spent burying my daughter.
Instead, she came home from the hospital about 1 on Thursday, had a reasonably good night and is with me today on her brother's campus as we catch up on our emails. Understandably her strength is nil and I hold onto her arm all of the time but she is alive! At 5 tonight Michael will graduate with his B.A. in History and he will be able to look over and see his baby sister sitting there watching him.
I will do a more extensive blog complete with a nauseating amount of pictures from the weekend when I get home Sunday evening. Kiereney is coming home with us and we will be bringing her back a week from today for her neurologist appointment.
The week has not hit me yet. I am on a Mommy/Nurse high taking care of my kids and being grateful that I made it to this day. I was diagnosed with cancer 3 weeks before Michael left for SIU and he was ready to stay in Virginia with me. I told him we had a deal---he would graduate and I would be there to see him. He is thankful beyond words for that and that also his 89 year old grandfather who was the one who inspired him to go into the Army as he served at Normandy, will be at his commissioning ceremony in the morning.
We have ONE final grade to come in to determine if Michael is graduating with honors tonight. Please keep all fingers crossed that it comes in at an A. He is with his professor now.
Thank you again to all my friends, old, new and in between, who so graciously gave of their time to support us. You will never be forgotten!
