I'm Home....

The 3-Day was an amazing experience. I can't even begin to tell you just how incredible it was. I was able to walk 43.5 miles and some change -- I could have done all 60, but we had a bit of drama. My friend has a GREAT wrap-up on her blog at:

As for me, I haven't really had a chance to process all that happened. I hobbled around a bit on Monday, and got the truck unloaded. The house is still pretty much a wreck of pink stuff everywhere.

But that's not important.

What is important is that I've been pulled into a Sub job for a very sweet friend. Yesterday they diagnosed her precious, 15-month-old granddaughter with a type of cancer I can't even pronounce, much less spell. It's a type of neuroblastoma that started in her abdomen.

Please pray for little Alexa and her family. Pray that the doctors will be able to quickly determine a plan of action -- they are working today to determine whether or not the neuroblastoma is operable. Pray that she has no lasting effects from the seizures and other difficulties she's been having. Pray for peace and strength -- her family is exhausted.

Having come off a very emotional weekend, and coming home to this news, it makes me all the more determined to help find a cure for cancer. For now, I'm just glad I'm in a position to step in and help on this very small level -- sore feet and all.
