An evenful uneventful day

I'm sorry I didn't get to post yesterday, so I'll post yesterday news today. We slept in later then we have in a long time, 10:00! Not a lot today but sit around. Bro. Terry called and said that he was going to stop by and meet us! Bro. Terry is in charge of sitting up Briley's trip to anywhere she wants to go. I will make a separate post and fill you in on the trip and the foundation that is sending her. It was a pleasure to meet him and talk. He is a good 'ole country boy pastor so that speaks for itself! We filled him in on the diagnoses and talked briefly about the struggles of pediatric cancer. Briley was a little shy and not in the best of moods. Maybe that will change on the next visit. Sounds like this trip will be a once in a life time trip for all of us!
We said our goodbyes to Bro. Terrye and waited for Gloria to arrive. Alicia had won the ranger game tickets and we were wanting to get there early to look around for a while before the game. Sure enough, Gloria calls. She's lost. It's a straight shot from Seymour to Cooks. You never turn until Harris is right in front of you. I still don't know how she ended up on 820E in Saginaw. She even had a Garmin leading the way! I stayed on the phone with her and "navigated" her to the RMH. I couldn't ask for a better mom-in-law.
She arrived and Alicia and I went to the Rangers game and stayed in the motel where she won a free night stay. This was the first time her and I have been "out" together kid less since before Briley was diagnosed. We had a good time! The seats were great and I think both of us were more excited sitting fairly close to President Bush than the game! It was lots of fun. We needed that.
We got back to RMH this morning. Briley has been feeling very good! It's been over 2 weeks since she has gotten chemo so she is finally gaining her strength back. She's been laughing and playing. It's been a blessing to see her like this. I left out after lunch back to Seymour to be on call tomorrow and to get Bryson. I think I will take Bryson back to the RMH on Monday to spend the night. Briley misses him, but it won't be long before they are fighting again! I promise to post pictures of her on here. I just don't know how. Help me Audra! Alicia will post today's events a little later.

  1. Yikes, sorry I am behind on reading! I am off to post pictures now. I had thought about it after your last post, but didn't want to jump on it without the okay. :-)
    SOOOOOOOOOOOO glad Alicia won the tickets! They couldn't have gone to a more deserving couple.


Thank you for your thoughts & prayers for Briley! God Bless!
