And So It Begins....

Our new reality...

Hello blogger friends! Miss me?

Its seems like it has been forever since I have sat in front of my computer and let my fingers do the typing, but life happened.  It continued to happen for a while. 

It amazes me how one little word can change your world. 


Brandon's father was recently diagnosed.  To be completely accurate the diagnosis is:

High grade large B cell Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Say that three times fast.

Believe me, I am not trying to make light of the subject.  It completely took over our lives for the past six weeks.  Learning new medical definitions, cleaning his house, organizing his finances.

This week, however, a new reality sets in.  Rodney will finally leave the hospital.  He will come home to a clean and sterile environment.  Up until this moment he has been in a controlled environment with caregivers and doctors.  Now it falls to us.

We become generally the only caregiver for all things physical, emotional, medical, and spiritual.
And let me just tell you, it scares me!

So dear blogger friends, please know I have missed you so. 

I will try to be more present and blog more frequently.

In the meantime, please remember us in your daily prayers!


  1. I'm keeping you guys in my thoughts for sure...
    Sorry to hear about Brandon's father, hang in there.

  2. You are in my thoughts & prayers. ((hugs))

  3. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me, that’s not why I am writing this post. My child six years ago, was born with Bi-lateral closed lip schizepcephaly, which is even more unique than the regular cases. Due to this disability, she also developed Cerebral Palsy affecting the left side of her body. We’ve learned the part of her brain which has been affected has also impaired her ability to reason. We’ve been lucky so far though it affects everyone differently and she had been on the very mild side of everything. Another thing we had to dealt with much are seizures. She was highly prone to having one or multiples and we’ve seemed to look out with some petite mals when she was younger and they occurred in her sleep more than any other time.
    Luckily, everything seemed to be okay after she took an Herbal Medicine. I wish I could say that’s the end of it because she havn't had any symptoms since then.
    Having a child with special needs is difficult. You sit living in fear of the reality your child may face, never really knowing what will happen until it does. Do not expose yourself to more danger, use a herbal remedy that is safe and effective. If interested contact him: to find out more information about the disorder and treatment.
