Sunday... Mothers day

Today is mothers day. We had a good day. We took the girls to the Children's Museum in Everett and Grandpa came over and cut our grass. IT LOOKS GREAT! Thanks Grandpa. We ate a feast for dinner. My mom's group friends brought over a huge load of food and we ate like kings. It wasn't low carb. Today was a good day. We're getting our minds wrapped around this thing and we're feeling now we are prepared to take the next medical steps.

Many of you are asking how to help. We do want your help. We've had flowers delivered, meals delivered, emails of kind thoughts and support. All of this helps. For now we're taking things one day at a time. We will need more help we just aren't sure what yet. When we know what we need we'll post and inform you. I know we'll need play dates for Whitney, more food, toys to play with when (if) she's admitted for surgery as we'll be there for potentially a month. Then when/if Chemo starts, we'll have more needs. Maybe more of the same needs maybe different needs.

For now, know that your kind words and support are very much appreciated. We feel the more people who direct positive energy our way, the better our family will be.

Monday is a big day. CT scan sometime. We'll update the blog as soon as we have new information. Please kiss your kids and hug them tightly for us. You can never say I love you enough times.

April, Tony, Whitney, and Ashley,

Our thoughts are with you as you have your "big day" today. You two are such AMAZING parents and one of the strongest couples I know. Please think of us as your extended family--we are here to help in ANY way we can. Our love to you all, Mako and the boys

What a lot to comprehend! I'll be thinking of you today and hoping that things go as well as possible. It sounds like you have a strong support system with family and friends. What a blessing in a time like this. Kisses to little Ashley.

Just a quick note to say you all, especially baby Ashley, are in my thoughts today. Hope the CT went well. You seem to be doing very well under the circumstances and taking it one step at a time. Remember you are never given more than you can handle. I realize at this time you do not know what you will need but please do not hesitate to ask. Meals? Playdates for Whitney? Dog sitting?
Best Wishes,
Jamie
