We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

So, sissy IS getting chemo today, thank you God! The tumor marker results probably won't be in until tomorrow and her onc didn't have the gene mutation results yet. So, right now it's business as usual. Thank you all for your thoughts, well wishes and prayers. And yes, MTII, I did get your soup recipe! I will be making it for her as the Spaghetti Factory minestrone is both her and Asa's fave soup! Papa's too. I guess I'll need to make a big 'ol batch of it. Thank you!

I'm playing catch up on your blog from the end of June, but I haven't stopped thinking or praying about you guys. I got your card in the mail(thank you soo much!) and my Mom happened to be over when I received it and I showed it to her. Then on Wed. I showed her your blog and we talked about you and Trina. My Mom said she would pray for you guys b/c it never hurts to have more people praying and sending positive thought your way. More later.

Continued prayers. I'm glad she was able to get her chemo today (is that wierd - that I'm GLAD she got that poison?)
