Hurdle. Crossed.

I think we have successfully crossed another hurdle. Ally survived the entire day without a headache. No vicodin, no mention of head pain. It was finally just a normal day around here. I am quite thankful that (I think) we are past that hurdle. God knows we probably have more coming, but we could use a bit a least until Monday when she has to go back in for chemo.

Her day was quite busy too. She went down to the Wingers house for a couple hours in the morning while I did some of my accounting work. She then did almost an hour and a half of tutoring with Mrs. Brower, played with her sister, made some dessert, built some more of her lego house, did her Sunday school homework, and then played with her Dad. We never even turned on the TV...ALL DAY. So that makes me feel better. We have so many, so many days with zero productivity that every once in a while we deserve a productive one.

Maybe we will just have a regular weekend at home. That would make me happy.

Thanks for following our story. Here I thought that people were falling off on reading the blog. I just looked up my Google analytics and we are getting over 400 visitors a day. Every single day 400 people are checking us out. So far, there have been 92,000 pages viewed by well over a thousand people....including every single state in the US. I am amazed and humbled by the support. Some day our girl will be too.

A lot of prayers were answered and we will continue to be faithful that HE will lead us through.


  1. I read each day, so I'm one of the 400, but often fail to comment. So glad for you and your productive day and no headaches. Praying for your family and a pain free, normal(ish) weekend!

  2. Fabulous! Hoping and praying for a quiet weekend at home for the barnetts....

  3. Have a good weekend. Maybe snow will still be at Foxhill and you can go sledding. I know how much Ally enjoyed that. Of course you and Jerad will too.

    It sounded like a wonderful day and I just noticed that there are now 207 people now, WOW!
    Here's to a good weekend.

  5. Thinking of you guys.....I often feel forgotten too and then find a ton of people still following. Always keeps me going to have so much support. Battling fevers all day here out of nowhere....anc 3460 so she got to come home but we've never just done tylenol at home, very weird feeling! We've also never not been admitted. Maintenance and strong counts are awesome. Anyway, enjoy your 3 day weekend together!

  6. Great news, I hope that you and the entire family can enjoy a somewhat "normal" weekend! Even though we all don't respond everyday, know that we are reading and praying right along with you. The Army is strong. Take care
