Merry Christmas!

On behalf of the rest of our family, I would like to wish everyone a very, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The last few weeks have been extremely challenging, and we have many more weeks ahead. I am positive we wouldn't be able to get through this without the tremendous support from our family, friends and community. It is amazing and truly humbling how some people who we hardly know display such compassion and selflessness.

Just like Thanksgiving, this Christmas will be different from the ones we've had before, but not as different. I will be taking Isabella back home in the morning and all the kids will be able to open their gifts as usual. And later that night, we'll take Isabella back to Rusk to continue her rehab. But once again, we are all praying for a miracle and that a year from now, we will be celebrating with a cured Isabella.


  1. Merry Christmas to all of you and we ae praying for that miracle, too. Have a wonderful day.

  3. Merry Christmas Icatars! It was sooo great to see Isabella (and all of you of course) at Church today! Alyssa got so excited she blurted out "Isabella's back and and she's doing a great job walking!". We explained she was here for a Christmas visit. Hope your day is filled with fun and laughter.

  4. I have been opening my computer everyday from day one. (I don't normally do this sometimes it takes me a week to sit down to open my computer) I am so excited to read updates on Isabella's progress - speedy recovery. I am really touched. I will continue to pray for her recovery.
    Happy Chritmas to all. May the good Lord be always at your side.

  5. Dear Isabella,
