Long Day Ahead

"A FINAL CUDDLE WITH DADDY"

In a matter of hours we shall depart for the airport. (This will be our fifth flight to Philadelphia in nine weeks – but hey, who’s counting?! Hee hee) We will change planes in Chicago and arrive in Philly late this afternoon. Thankfully, Christi continues to feel well, but I will still be pushing her in her big blue jogging stroller.

Shayla and Christi’s “big” friends (and Shayne and my “little sisters” hee hee) are driving in from Columbus tonight. Not only will Christi have the best “big” playmates around (her loving fans from Columbus COSI) but I’ll also have their help (and their car). We are incredibly grateful for their love and assistance all this week! I’ll call as soon as the Ronald House opens and hopefully the four of us will have a room there this week.

Christi it's so good to see you smile again. Hope and pray you keep feeling better. And I know having your ' big ' friends with you this week will definitely be a morale booster. They're two of the very best. { But I'm a wee bit prejudiced since I'm so lucky know them both }.

I'm sure Buttercup and Buckeye will become good friends. Being in such a loving family, they have no choice.

You take care little one. My thoughts, best wishes and prayers, and those of so many others, will alwyas be with you and your family.

Greg ( another one of your COSI fans )

I love all of the beautiful pictures you have been sharing...I especially love the big smile in the ceramics store:) I'm glad that Christi got to spend some time with her friends before heading back to Philly and it sounds like you both have some great friends joining you there too. I bet it is a comfort to be surrounded by such love and friendship.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as always. Take care and may God bless each of you as you take this next step in your journey.

hope you had a safe trip and that a room was ready for you at the RMH. Praying that this round pushes the beast even further back, and that you are feeling as well as possible. Christi, we are all praying for you.

love,

Just wanted you to know that I'm praying for you... when you get a chance, I would love it if you give me a "summary" of what's going on in Christi's life right now... I just don't have the time to read everything (as we're organizing a prayer chain for Emily's surgery). I would love to do a post on Christi, however, and would appreciate it if you could fill me in on the essentials and we could go from there. I will also add her to my prayer list on my blog.

In Him,
Amy
