Day 11 – November 5th…. Shake It Off

It's Thursday morning, we leave for Santa Barbara today so Josh is home. We gave Nani the morning off, so we are taking the kids to school.  I'm up typing around 6am ... unbelievably this is not the typical school morning for me. I'm usually scrambling like crazy... Lunches, homework, breakfast and those shorts you…

Day 10 – November 4th High School Memories

Well it's Wednesday and I think this may be one of the funnest weeks of my life ... right up there with New Zealand with my sweetie in March of this year.  Today my oldest high school friend, Megan Braziel Kaiser is coming to be with me today.  This girl and her family moved to…

Day Nine – Novemeber 3rd Like Mother… Like Daughter!

Tuesday has come, the clouds have lifted and it is a glorious day outside with that crisp, Fall wonderful air. My mom, Jackie is coming today and I'm so excited... she rises early, leaving Morro Bay where she is camping with my little sis's fam solo just because that's the kind of woman she is.…

Day Eight – November 2nd … Brenda, Rain and My Late Inspiration!

It's Monday morning again, one week after getting my results and the week has gone so fast... it has been such a journey and such a joy! My plan for the day is to see Brenda again, relax with her at home while the wonderful pouring rain pounds outside, giving so much needed moisture to…

Day Seven – November 1st … Church, Cousins and Parent Group

It's Sunday... and we find ourselves back on the road headed towards Atown for church once again.  So much has happened in one tiny week.  We are all looking smooth.  I know what you are thinking, "The Lee family, they are a good looking bunch, especially that Mr. Lee.'"  We park next to an old…

Rewind…Ventricular What?

I'm going to rewind a little because so many super-smart or interested people want to know more about the tumor.  The doctors believe this thing is a Intraventricular Tumor.  Sounds confusing but really just tells you where it is located... in the ventricles.   Deep in the center, beneath all the lobes, the ventricles are where…

Day Six – October 31st Am I Going to Make It?

If you are a soccer family like us, you know that Saturdays can be almost too much to take, let alone when Halloween falls on a Saturday!  We knew it would be a very busy day and from the get-go we planned too much. Two soccer games in the heat, kids trick-o-treating with friends and…

Day Five – October 30th … Friday Date Day

  Fridays rock... Kids are at school, my sweetie and I have most of the day to ourselves.  Now sometimes we live it up and sometimes we get sucked into all that has to be done.  This was a little bit of both but a great day!  Kids to school, we headed to work to…

Day Four – October 29th … The Crashing Waves and my little sis Heidi!

Decision made and feeling good in the morning,  I was ready for a chill day. Precious time with the Lord and a quiet house were true blessings. Verse for the Day: Make me to know your ways Oh Lord, teach me your paths.  Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the…

Day Three – October 28th A Walk in the Park?

We woke early to leave for Santa Barbara to meet with Dr. Park, whose office is across from Cottage Hospital.  We were met in the waiting room by a lovely girl named Kate, just like Josh's sister.  She is our Nurse Navigator... how brilliant!  A liaison between us and the doctor.  We can ask questions…
