Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

hospital time

i'm learning that hospital time has nothing to do with real time. we were to have the biospy at 10:30 and it didnt' happen till noon and we were to get results 3-4 hours after the biopsy and here it is 7:30 and we haven't heard a word. Pretty frustrating and a bit scary. I know that they are trying to diagnos it an I want them to do the best they can to figure it out. I just want a plan. I need patience.....big time.

I am getting all twitchy and I'm talking for no reason. I just gab on and on and I'm also a bit giddy. But everyone is being very understanding...thanks mom and dad. if we get a diagnosis soon I will post it.

Hey Em -

Don't worry about what you are doing or saying. You have the right to stand on your head if you want. Whatever gives you the strength to keep going. I'm praying for your family. Sending something for you two lovely ladies to do while sitting around in the stinky hospital. Give the baby a kiss for me.

Love Shannon

We know all about "hospital time" here! I think people who have never had the hospital experience must scratch their heads when I say that an appt. to Hopkins pretty much wipes out my entire day. I don't know if you've had it up to your ears with advice yet (maybe not). IF not, here's some more: try to get outside for a walk and some fresh air.
Like hospital time, hospital air is nothing like the real stuff either! :)
Love you friend!

Emily -

Sending you love and hugs and kisses from Pittsburgh. And I wouldn't worry about talking too much - I say talk all day and night if you want to!

I'm keeping your family in my thoughts, hope and strength.

Much Love - Jess Kennedy

hey..just wanted to let you know that Hershey is notorious for that...tests running late, waiting for the diagnosis (and depending on what doctor you have dealing with his/her professional disposition...), but on the positive side---I think they are really competent. My mom went there a year ago and is cancer free right now. My family will be praying for your family.

If they don't diagnose soon or come up with something unclear then please consider having them fax the test results to Roswell Parks Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY. They are very highly regarded in the cancer/lukemia treatment community and did an amazing job of rescuing my dad from acute promysecelitic Lukemia. It is a rare form that can kill within three days if not diagnosed.
Above all remember where strength, comfort, peace, and all life comes from....Trust God! We are praying for you.

Emily, I'm so grateful for this blog and for your gabbing because it makes me feel a little closer. I hate being so far away from my brother and all you guys (y'all). Couldn't help but notice the Auburn Tshirt. Bill sent pics which is so good too - thanks, you're doing US far away family a favor!!! just talked to Beth and she is hungry for news also and getting her church friends praying. Wonder if you've heard anything by now. Love, Marcy

Emily, James, Alivia,

I check this site at least 10 times today. I'm sending prayer beams from Athens. They might not be as smart as other prayers and they'll definitely take a little longer to get there and could show up in a T-shirt saying "The South will rise Again", but they mean well.

Love, Andrew

My father just called to let me know what was going on.
I am sitting at my computer crying right now. I can't even imagine what you are going through. Leslie and I have photos of cute little Alivia on our fridge...I hate picturing her in any kind of pain.
I am and will be praying for all of you.

Love you-

Hi Emily,

My dad called me tonight and told me about what was going on. I don't even know what to say except that I will be saying a prayer for you guys everyday and every night, and all the times in between that i think of you. I'll call you tomorrow. love you,

We are praying for you in New York! All the ladies at West Point on the prayer chain saw the photos William has on his blog and are praying for Alivia. The devil is a liar!!!!!! Alivia will be a strong woman of God and she has work to do. She lives in the secret place of the Most Hight! Hey, she's in my family and I'm praying Psalm 91. You just hang in there. God bless you. We are praying for you and James to be strong in the Lord. God gave Alivia to you and James because you are the right ones for the job of being her parents. God has a hope and a plan for her future.

Love, Aunt Cheryl
