On May 5th, 2010 our life was redefined when we discovered that I have a tumor
growing in the spinal cord of my neck.

The purpose of this blog to keep an updated record of our "Life Redefined" and give you the details you might be wondering about (surgery, recovery and other random daily stuff, etc...)

For our friends and our family members who want to be kept updated this is the easiest way for us to do it. It's also good therapy for me to write it down!

We still want you to call or visit if you feel like it - we find so much strength from you. All of your words and encouraging thoughts and prayers are a great blessing for us!

Getting through my last week with Family and Friends!

A visit from some of my "other parents" from Spokane, Glen and Linnea!  So great to see them!

More visitors!  I got 3 of the McGrath siblings!  We missed the rest of you!  Can't wait to hear your news Ben and Brittany! Wink, Wink!

Kerrie and baby Montgomery stopped by while in the area!  Loved playing with Montgomery, he and Levi were just 1 day apart!

These next pictures are the new trick we found on Skype!  We took pictures of us Video Skyping our Family Home Evening tonight!

This is me teaching the lesson via the webcam!  We talked about how Heavenly Father's creations from the plants and flowers to us, his children.  We talked about how He sent Jesus Christ (I'm holding the picture of Jesus and the flowers!) to help us through all of our problems and how prayer is such a powerful tool!

Brian and Emily making funny faces to make Mommy smile while webcaming!

They turned the camera to the floor to show me how  Levi is sitting up!  He was so proud of himself and very excited!  We caught the picture with a smile on his face!  How fun!

Hey Kara, I tried to call you today. Do you have any idea what time you will be released from the hospital? We are trying to decide how far we want to drive in one day. I really want to see you!
