46 Mommas

Tomorrow, on September 10th, you may already know there is a program airing on all the television stations - "Stand Up 2 Cancer". What you may not know is that there is an amazing group of women - mothers with children fighting cancer - that shaved their heads to raise awareness for childhood cancer. I think there are at least 3 moms in the following video whose child has rhabdo. This will also be part of the nationally televised event - please click on the link below:

I'm incredibly proud of these amazing mommas! What a statment they make!

We hope to do our part through the charity softball tournament, also starting tomorrow afternoon. The weather is clearing up (it wouldn't DARE rain) and everything is starting to fall into place. I would love to fall into bed. We have 20 teams registered and ready to play!

Nick's counts came back - zero is pretty easy to read. He's grounded. His counts don't usually crash this quick - his bone marrow just doesn't bounce back like it used to. We are arguing as I type about him attending the event - we're at a draw right now. The good thing is that he has been on antibiotics all week due to the infection he had earlier. I got the carpets cleaned and dogs groomed just in time!

Grandma & Grandpa arrived last night and Corey and his wife, Lisa, arrive on Saturday (they are representatives from First Descents). Aunt Chris & Uncle Stan are coming out on Saturday, too. This weekend will be a blast!

Loads of love to all...
