Our New Normal [s] » Our little family's realization, that there is no normal


It comes and goes in waves. Like her moods. I WILL NOT lose her to this friggin disease. She will not be taken from us for 6 months, 6 days, or even 6 minutes! Can’t I just take her in my arms, and hold her and not let go until this is all over?

I never thought…

I’d see the day that taking Rio to his monthly Ocularist appointment would ever take a back-burner to anything else! This morning, I called them and told them I couldn’t make it, which is the first time I have ever done that in his 2 years of going there. I sit here as one who […]

Jill Owens - What a BEAUTY!!!!! She is in God’s hands ” THE ULTIMATE HEALER ” : ) Lot’s of love and prayers to you and the family! God has Vivia cuddled up in his arms! xo Jill

The Latest

We have an appointment tomorrow with a homeopathic doc who will examine Vivia’s levels and her diet and make some dietary suggestions based on her diagnosis. And we will become one of “those” families who can’t eat out or has to bring their own treats to parties bc we can’t eat anything commercial. But, hey, […]

Kristy Chowning - A friend of mine’s son was just diagnosed this just a couple of weeks ago. Before that, I had never heard of it. We will definitely be praying.

Freedom - Thanks Kristy. That’s so odd. How old is your friend’s son? How far along is the disease? I mean, what are his symptoms, do you know?

Heather Davis - I will be praying for you and your family Freedom. It’s always scary when the unexpected happens and especially when we don’t understand it. Know that God places it all in front of us for a reason, even though we can’t see it yet and it seems so unfair. I’m truly sorry you have to go through this hardship and I know it hurts the most when it’s our children. WHY CAN’T it BE US???? Love you and thinking of you.

Miranda - Oh Free. I am so sorry, babe. You will be in my prayers. Love you.

Kristy Chowning - I don’t know the details but I will see if I can connect the two of you.

ejackson - Freedom. I finally went and searched for this post because i saw your post from today… and remembered you said something about viv on an eliot post… I don’t know how I missed this except maybe you weren’t in my facebook feed (why does facebook make these decisions for us!) I’m so sorry I did not know. I will be praying and so sorry you are having to battle this.

Luci W. - Hahahaha i really loved reading the Bear Grylls story. Especially that your husband took that chance and was able to surprise you. Years ago, I met Tim Curry when I worked at a bar and I couldn’t remember a single movie he’d been in, (or his name) but I knew that I loved every single character he played because he’s great in every role. I greeted Tim with an ethusiastic, “It’s YOU!!!” and “it’s so wonderful to see you!” He was a great customer… gracious, funny, ordered big and tipped very well, etc.
