Bailey's Here!


Hey I am doing a shout out to all who having been looking for a way to help me. I have a friend putting on a fund raiser on Tuesday and she needs some help with taking down and cleaning up. If you are available to help on Tuesday night at 9pm it will take about an hour if there are enough people to help clean up. It is at the Hampton Inn across from the Toyota Center at 9pm. If you can let Wendy Knight know her number is 509-735-3239. Thank you!

O.k. enough of that. I hope everyone is doing well. I have heard my family is not the only family that is sick I hear it is going around. Yesterday I had my blood draw and no news is good news right. I will take another one on Monday to let me know if I can keep doing chemo on Tuesday. Keep your fingers crossed. My sister Bailey got into town from Rexburg with her son Kooper. We have loved having them here. Her and my sister Kendall hang out all evening visiting it was lots of fun and relaxing. It always nice to have a reason together and visit.

Today the family was going to try and go to the pumpkin patch but we decided it was to wind and cold so we have been visiting and catching up with each other. Those of you who know dad he is doing better. He was actually out of bed today and down stairs visiting. My dad has been flat on his back for almost 2 weeks now. His pain medicines are working ha! We are thankful everyday for little blessing. I know I say that everyday but I look for those everyday. I had the coolest one yesterday. I don't know if I already posted this of not but I needed something from someone and two minutes later they called. She must have been listening to the spirit.

Haing your family here is going to be the best medicine yet...I'mso glad you can all be together! And hooray for dad and his ability to move around a bit. Bright skies are coming your way!

Angie from dance just emailed me your blog, so I have spent the last half hour reading everything and getting caught up. She told me the news at dance on Tues. My heart just sank when I heard what you have been going through. I am just in awe of your positive attitude in this whole ordeal. If you need any help in getting Kamden to dance on Tuesdays, please let me know. Angie and I were talking, and we all live close by, so we have no problem in taking turns taking Kamden to dance if she is still going to go. Please know you are in my thoughts!

I'm happy that your family is so there and you are all enjoying each other's company.

Keep looking for those little blessings! I loved hearing about your experience. You are so loved and are definitely being watched over.

My fingers are crossed that all works out so you can continue Chemo next week : )

I think I'll be able to come help on Tuesday. I will call your friend.

Do you need a ride or someone to go with you on Monday to your blood test - or someone to watch your kids? I am free. And I am still free on Tuesday too, as we previously talked about.

I always have a lot of fun when my sister's and I get together. Late night visiting and just sharing love. Glad Bailey could come out!

Rochelle, Please, please, please let me take your kids whenever you need to. I can run them to activites or just keep them at the house so you can have some time to rest. Seriously I want to help. And don't you dare think you are inconviencing me at all. In fact I will have Logan over to play with Jace this Tuesday so why not send over Carter and the three of them will have a ball!!!
I'm right next door so please call me anytime. I've got tons of time to help out! I'd love to help you with cleaning, cooking, shopping, or whatever!!

Hi Rochelle!

That's great that you and your sisters have been able to hang and visit. I remember babysitting all of you and how much fun I thought it would be to have all sisters!! Sisters are the best (not that brothers aren't great too...)!;) And my fingers are crossed also that all works out so you can continue Chemo. Please let me know if you need company, a driver, a babysitter - whatever!

You don't know me, but I have been touched by your story and inspired by your strong spirit you have conveyed in these posts. I'm in 1st ward and have probably seen you around the hallways at church a time or two and I think our daughters were in parks and rec gymnastics together a couple of years ago. I just wanted to let you know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I admire your courage to share this journey, and wish you the best. One good day at a time.
