Happy Thanksgiving

Now that it is officially Thanksgiving, I'd like to thank everyone for the tremendous support and outpouring of thoughts and prayers we received. This has been and will continue to be the most trying times of our lives and we'd never be able to get through it without you. In particular, we'd like to thank my mom and Julianne's parents who have helped around the house while Julianne and I stay with Isabella in the hospital. We'd also like to thank my brother, EJ, and Julianne's brother and his wife, Mark and Beth who have stopped by to help around the house.

Thanksgiving for us will be very different this year. Normally, we gather at a relative's house and eat all day until we pass out. This year, we will be spending Thanksgiving in the Rusk Institute with a bunch of other families in similar situations. It will be different, and difficult, but at least we will be together.

I am confident that we are giving Isabella the best treatment possible and giving her the best chance of beating this. I am hopeful that come next Thanksgiving, I will have many more things to be thankful for, especially celebrating Isabella's health at home.
