Beach Bums!!

Jason and I took a much needed vacation to Destin, FL last weekend. We had a great relaxing time! The weather was a little chilly, but we still got lots of sun and had lots of good food.

I told Jason this was the last year we could relax at the beach! Next year we will be building sand castles and playing with Leland in the pool!

7 Month Check-up!!

I have been to the doctor twice this week. I had my first glucose test bright and early Monday morning and failed. I had to go back for the 3 hour test this morning. I was not a happy camper!! I had to get stuck 5 times, 2 of which were drawing a vile a blood from 2 fingers because the lab person said I was "dry". Not fun, but worth it because I passed the second one!!

Leland is measuring just as he should and we are still on schedule for a July 24th due date. I am still on the small side to be 7 months pregnant, but I have been reassured that everything is OK.

We go back on May 18th for the 4D ultra sound and I will also start my Rog am shots because I am a negative blood type. Time is flying by!

Happy Easter!!!

Jason and I went to Newnan this weekend to spend Easter with family. We had a great time!
Granpa LOVES Tisyn!!

Welcome Anslee!!!

Anslee Elizabeth Williamson is our newest little cousin!! Jason had a good hour of practice with a newborn at the hospital.....

Say a little prayer! She is currently in the NICU at St. Vincents. They believe she has reflux, but will be there until the can run more test tomorrow. We are all hoping all is well! Hopefully she will just need a formula change and will be able to go home!!

Prayer's needed now more than ever.....

I posted a blog a while back about our dear friend, Danielle, waiting to have her bone marrow transplant. To update, she had the transplant last Wednesday. I went to the hospital to visit her, and all was well. She was doing great and was in good spirits. The nurses on the floor came into her room with a cake, t-shirt, and a poster signed by all the nurses. They proceeded to sing Happy Birthday to her, as Wednesday 4/2/2009 was the birth of her new life! It brought tears to my eyes, and I was very excited that I got the opportunity to share that moment with her and her mom.

Over the weekend, she started to decline, but this was OK because we knew things would get a lot worse before they got better. Last night I received a text stating that they were taking her for a cat scan because they thought that one of the tumors was causing serious problems and pain. This morning she received some rather bad news. The tumors appear larger now and she is having some abnormal enlarging of the esophagus. This is not good!! It seems as though she is moving backwards instead of forwards with the BMT. I am not sure what the doctor's will do to treat this issue, but I pray that they do something quickly to get her out of pain and misery from thinking that this may be the end of the road.

Please take time to pray for Danielle and her family as they are going through the most emotional time of pain right now. It has been one LONG road this past year as she has fought with all her might to beat this cancer. I know in my heart that God has a brand new life of all the world's blessings in store for her after this battle is over. Please just keep them in your thoughts and prayers and just know that you can't take things for granted and you don't need to sweat the small stuff!!
