The orthopedic doctor obviously didn't know my history, as I sat and patiently listened while he fully explained to me this afternoon what MRI and CT scans were. He believes Shayla probably has a stress fracture in her right foot due to over usage. Tomorrow we'll have her do a MRI and hopefully that will let him figure out what to do next. We'll meet with him on Wednesday morning.

She'll also start her physical therapy tomorrow, but tonight she's off to musical practice. While waiting for her doctor's appointment she completed a couple of scrapbook pages - they are darling! After her appointment she asked if I could take her to Wal-Mart to ask the manager for a donation of 51-75 goldfish. When I asked her, "What for?" She said, "I volunteered to ask for my 4H club. They're for the Goldfish Toss for the 4H Kick Off night games." I responded back with, "I hope you're not really going to toss the goldfish." She responded with many giggles. At the store, I stood back and watched her with amazement. I cannot believe she had the guts to do that. She was so gracious with the response as well. She's amazing!

HI Shayla, Hope your 4-H year is going well. Did you get the donation from Walmart? Keep up the good work. I just came from judging the 4-H Speech Contest for another county. Take care and many hugs to you!!! Jean

I think it's wonderful that she asked for the goldfish donation all by herself! What a grown up little girl.

I hope that the MRI gives you some answers, that treatment will be a breeze, and that Shayla feels as good as new in no time at all!

Wishing your family all the best,

Explaining to a cancer parent who lost their child what an MRI and CT are... the poor bloke! Can you imagine his astonishment at your patience if he knew????

I believe God has something really, really, big planned for Shayla's future. She is just WAY too AMAZING to be anything ordinary when she grows up! Hmmm...President Thomas?!!! I think so. She has MY vote already!
