Thoughts and words from Emma

***Updated photos at the end of post.....

Hi everybody. I am doing pretty well. I am just getting past my sleepy/head achy stage of my chemo round. So when I go back to school I will be in tip-top shape:) School is going awesome!! I love my teacher. He explains things very well and digs deeper into the subject. I am soooooo exited that I only have two chemos left!!  We have two mini dachshunds. We have a 1 year old boy Hank and a 4 year old girl Ellie.  Ellie is pregnant! Like the rest of my family I am waiting. . . and waiting for the puppies to come. She is absolutely huge!! We think she will have three-four puppies. My mom and dad say we can't keep any. They think three dogs is enough so we will find good homes for them. I have been measuring Ellie's belly and it is growing! I think she is at her max which is 23 1/2 inches round.

 School is going to be here sooner then we know, but I am VERY thankful that I have no HOMEWORK!! On New Year's Eve my family and I were brainstorming on what we wanted to do in the new year. My ideas were: read one book a month, fix "the 70" so I can ride it ( which is a motorcycle), and join swim team. I also want to go back to soccer and dance. . . FINALLY! I know that is kinda a long list but this year I have missed some things I love to do! We have a lot of trips and tasks ahead of us in the new year,  but at the same time  FULL of fun!!

  2. SO excited WITH you, Emma Kait, for all the great things coming up for you! Can't find enough words to describe how much I love you, but I think you know. :) Love, Grammy, who is SO proud of you!

    P.S. I love the song on the blog (The Prayer)--so beautiful.

  3. Dear Emma Kait,

    You don't know me, but I went to high school with your mom and aunt Kaitlin. I just wanted to sent you a little note to tell you what an inspiration you are! I check in on your blog every now and then to read updates. I think you are very strong and very brave. You are enduring a unique challenge in your life, but I can tell God is giving you strength and enthusiasm to carry you through. Please know that you have many fans rooting for you and that your influence reaches farther than you may ever know! I will be thinking of you and praying for you as you get through your last few treatments. Yay!! Hang in there, girl!
