Gabey D. is our wonderful firstborn son. He was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) in May 2007, and has been going through a 3 1/2 year chemo treatment. We are trusting God, and believe He will show Himself Mighty.

Photos of Visit

Gabey's still got a cough, pray that it gets better. He's fine, and acting great. He woke up this morning, and I noticed a real difference in his weight. I can tell he's getting back to normal. His face is slimmer, and his belly's slimmer too.

I brought my camera on Thursday, and got to take some pictures. We weren't expecting to have to stay. I took pictures of the good parts of our visit. Some nice things happened. One fun thing is that the nurse who put his "clippy" in rewarded him for being so good by doing a handstand! The OR nurse put Sunny Bunny in an OR outfit for Gabey to pass the time. I got a pic of that. When we got admitted to the hospital room, there was a present waiting on the bed for Gabey. It was a really cool tool set. The family room is finished this time, so when Chrissy was up with us, Jeff and I got to go in there for a little bit to eat dinner. (I forgot my sandwich in the fridge there, oops sorry.) In the morning, I was able to sneak in there again before the guys woke up, and had a cup of coffee in there. The showers are open, so that's awesome. If we would have had to stay, I would have taken a shower, but we were leaving that morning, PTL.

This is the OR playroom. We like the magnet tables.
