Easter Weekend - Hope is A Powerful Medicine

I received an email entitled "Hope is A Powerful Medicine" It gave me a lot to think about especially going into Easter Weekend. Many have watched over the last years the challenges my little family and I have faced. Some have said. "how do yo do it?" It is simple...I am strengthened by the power of the Lord. I am filled with HOPE.

I want to share my Easter gift with you. HOPE

Hope can be a fragile thing in the life of a child with cancer or other life-threatening illness. Actually, it is a fragile thing in all of us. It needs nurturing.

March 29, 2010 - Four Months ago today

Four months ago today my sweet little Erin passed away. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her. I really miss her with an intensity I never knew was possible. But I know the Lord is with me and the kids. I have felt Him there...He carries us and comforts us and helps us through this time.

I love you and miss you Erin! Erin Go Braugh...Erin forever!!!

As you know Erin has been getting very thin. It is heart breaking to see. :( Steven and I discussed a feeding tube. The doctor said it would not be to beef her up or to gain weight. No one could have anticipated that she would still be here. Even the doctors are surprised. After talking with the doctors we decided to not do the feeding tube. For different reasons.

October 22, 2009 - Update on Erin

Four years ago today I sat in the waiting room of PCMC while Erin underwent a 13 hour surgery to have the brain tumor removed. That was a long day and it seems like a life time ago. So much has happened since then. I have had a lot of time to review the last four years and I have no regrets. We have lived and done so much with Erin.

Tuesday, Sept 29, 2009 - The Latest

Erin has been slowly going down hill. She spends most of her days in bed. On occasion she will wake up and we will talk. She doesn't eat much, only fluids and has lost quite a bit of weight. She is fighting so hard, but the truth is her time is very close.
