Just because I can see from the traffic everyone is looking for some info on Hope...I thought I would quickly post.
Today she got the feeding tube and tomorrow will get her first feedings and some drugs to help with the tumor. She wanted her hair washed and blow dried so her personality is sneaking out from behind the wall of the drugs...it has been nice to see glimpses of Hope throughout the day. I even helped her with ice cream yesterday...what a treat! The boys are in their normal routine and still live in a world where they haven't heard the word cancer....Jake is bravely preparing his speech for them and is taking it day by day to decide when to sit them down.
Jake is also working on getting her strong enough to bring her home, get hospice and take each day they have been given on what must feel like borrowed time.
I will be sitting with her tomorrow while Jake tends to a work issue he can't miss so I will pass on every ones well wishes if she is up to hearing them. She is keenly aware of the situation, as doctors can't answer her questions of "how much time". Hope is (as we all should do) living in each moment as she is given.
I know they appreciate all the love and prayers.
