Marlee's wiggly tooth, and update on my grandpa


Well, Marlee's "buck tooth on her top shelf" as she calls it, finally came out! She was getting a drink of water and accidently bumped the glass against her tooth, then she said she thought she had a nut in her mouth! Lo and behold, it was her tooth!! She looks darling!!!

Now for some sad news.... My grandpa's very valiant fight with cancer seems to be drawing to an end. Now, I still think he wins, because he is very loved and is one of the most christian men i know, so he wins by getting to be held in Jesus' arms, but we lose because we will miss him. Im thankful I know that families can be together forever, and that our Heavenly Father loves us and holds us when we need it. The radiation is not working, his blood pressure is down again, and he suffered a light heart attack last week. This morning he had another episode of almost blacking out and they just told him there was no way to get a feeding tube in him, cant open his stomach because that is where the tumor is , cant go down the nose, there is no room in his stomach. He has lost 6 lbs since last week and is just to weak to even walk. My parents are thankfully able to stay with my grandparents and help out, but we wait. Please keep him in your prayers and also keep my grandma in your prayers, they are truly "in love" and she will be very lonely. I am so thankful for our family. We are strong we will get through this, but it is very sobering and sad to lose the patriarch of this great family. Love, JL

My heart goes out to all of you guys. I wish I was closer so I could wrap you up in a big hug right now. Prayers for all of you all especially your grams. If there is anything anyone in my family can do just ask Mom and I are in constant contact and help can be sent in any way. *HUGS*

My heart goes out to you and your family. It's bittersweet losing the patriarch of the family. My grandfather went on the his final reward a couple years ago. It was so hard to say goodbye to the godly man that inspired the family to live up to a higher standard. Even though it was so hard, I knew that his pain and suffering had ended and he was right where he had worked so hard to be. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
