|On the grow and still blonde in some areas|
Reya's hair is starting to grow. Each day there is a little bit more than the day before. Of course we make a big deal about it and she continues to ask me if it's growing like Rapunzel. I tell her it will be back before she knows it. The Princess Aurora band aid cures all things, even a rambuntious little girl, full of energy that bangs her head on the edge of a door. Thank God her platelets are almost 300k.
Say an extra prayer for Emily and her family this evening. Emily was admitted to the Bone Marrow Unit for her second stem cell transplant. Emily was diagnosed with neuroblastoma a few days before Christmas and she has been fighting every since then. Nothing is to difficult for God! He is able to do the miraculous and that is what we are believing for.
It's Childhood Cancer Month and there are many activities going on this month to bring awareness and support to cancer and kids. Hopefully you were able to enjoy and support one of the many 'Cookies for Cancer' locations today. Connor's Heroes will be sponsoring Diggity Fest on Sunday, September 18th at Westchester Commons. Tickets are still available for this awesome family event. Richmond's own Diggity Dudes will be in concert along with Hope Harris and Dan Zane. For more info click here http://diggityfest.com/.
We continue to rejoice in the progress Reya is making and we remain prayerful for our friends and all the kids we see in clinic each week. Praying for others is vital to our own spiritual growth.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
