Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day, everybody! It was a beautiful day here in Indy. Bailey's feeling much, much better now that they stopped giving her the prostecyclin. Josie and Marissa spent the day with us today, and the girls had a great time playing together and making crafts.

We woke up this morning with a sign on Bailey's door that said to wear a mask upon entering the room. That always means her white count is down again. So, we're in isolation. Hopefully it won't last too long. Even though the masks are to protect Bailey, I think it makes her feel more like she has "cooties" and everyone needs to protect themselves from her when entering the room. She's always disappointed to see her nurse walk into the room in the morning wearing a mask. But we had a good day -- made some jewelry, worked on our second afghan, etc. Colin and his dad and friend, Brandon, visited again today. It's always nice to see them. They give us so much encouragement and, having to live with major medical conditions themselves (Colin a transplant, and Brandon a spinal cord injury), we have so much in common with them. It's very strange, though, because we feel like we've known them forever. Colin and Brandon act more like Bailey's brothers than friends - and they pick on each other like siblings do. His dad, Lance, and I just enjoy sitting back and watching the three of them form an everlasting bond. And Lance and I share our own bond - it's nice to have someone to talk to who has been where we are and knows exactly what to say to help get us through the day. God has truly blessed us by orchestrating our paths to cross.

Thank you for all your prayers out there! Our day will come.

Love, Angie

A Prayer for Help

Lord, I cry to you for help,
you, Lord, are my protector,
you are all I want in this life.

Listen to my cry for help
for I am sunk in despair.

I'm so excited that we put a big smile on your face this weekend. You couldn't have been more vibrant. I could have had him stay a little longer so he could watch you get sick, but I didn't think that was a good idea. He wants to stay in touch, so please call my cell at 317-513-4492 and I will give you his numbers. You mean a lot to our entire staff at IMSP.
