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.

Don't really know what to expect for tomorrows doctor appointment. I would love for her numbers to be down again and just continue what we are doing now. But I want to be realistic and realize there are a lot of options. Her WBC might be down more (good) but her other counts could be down too in which case we will do a blood transfusion. Or her WBC count could be back up and we'll start the Vincristine. Hopefully not the second option. I am trying to trust God...its all just so intense and scary. I feel like I'm on the worlds worst roller coaster. I want to be thankful for each day and not think to far ahead but its hard not to.

Pray for...
...good numbers all around
...wisdom for our doctor
...rest (we have to be in Hershey by 8:15 which means we leave around 7:30 and I am going to have to wake Livi up to leave. Not sure how she'll deal with that)
...easy blood draw (hopefully it will be since the nurses in the office will be doing it)


Thanks to...
...the Williams kids for the Bible and stickers. So sweet.
...suprise dinner from the Felizzi's. I was upstairs in the shower and didn't realize they were even coming and came down and dinner was on the stove. What a great suprise. Thanks

Praying from this verse for you today:

"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!"
Romans 11:33

May the God whose wisdom and knowledge are so deep, they're unsearchable, manifest His wisdom, knowledge and understanding of Livi's body and its needs to you and James and all your doctors. May He surprise you by His mercy and grace lavished upon you today.
Praying for much strength, too.

Love you much!

Jude 24-25
To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

There's nothing in this world or out of the world that can thwart the plans of God and his plans are always for good because HE IS GOOD.

Praying for a good doc's appt today. Praying for Alivia to respond well and for the techs to be quick and excellent in their work.

Love,
Sara

Hi Emily,

Finally...I have been trying to comment on your blogs for the past couple days and for whatever reason wasn't able to. Anyway, I was so thankful to hear that your mom was able to find an identical blanket at the PB Outlet for Alivia. Your prayer request for another blanket was really on my heart. So, I was praying especially for this. I was thrilled and encouraged to hear that God had answered our prayers. I was reminded how much God cares about all our needs -- great and small. What a good God!

Much care, Lori

I am learning to "pray without ceasing" as Paul said. No one I would rather pray for than Livi and ALL my kids. Mom

Emily,
I am a secretary at Living Hope Church in Harrisburg. I have two people with O+ who would like to be able to donate blood for Alivia, but are not sure how to get in touch with you. Here are their names and email addresses if that is helpful to you: Dave Anderson--bldr4him@comcast.net and Linda Campbell--campbellsclan@comcast.net
If there is a better way to do this, please let me know.

...remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe... --Eph 1:16-19

Luv-you, luv-you, luv-you!
