Day at the beach by Noel.

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Busy busy days yesterday and today. I went to Santa Barbara yesterday for more chemo and marrow testing, all went semi-well. My sister did have to return home to North Dakota=(. Today was an exceptional day to have for recovery. I started my morning off with a delicious breakfast with my grandparents out in my backyard, my Papa and I got to hang out by the pool and watch our favorite movie together (Fantastic Mr. Fox). It was just like old times when I was younger and my Papa and I spent every moment together. To make everything better I got to swim finally today with my mom and Emma, and the weather was perfect the whole time. I even got a visit from my Aunt, Uncle and cousin too. We all sat outside just hanging out and playing card games, and as I thought it was time to hit the hay I got another surprise. An air-hockey table was set up for the family in my house, so of course I had to play a few games against the family. WOW what a day! Well I know I will sleep great tonight though. Church tomorrow and a dart-board possibly too(= Minor set-back in therapy right now, nothing I can't handle though. I'm not exactly sure how to explain it, but I have a rare type of A.L.L and Monosomy 7 gene that is being studied right now. But I am worry free, I am in God's hands and in great care so I don't blink an eye or shed any tears. I would like to thank Vic's Cafe, again, for more hot wings and Paul and Valerie (whom I consider family) for the fun and competitive air- hockey table.


  1. Hot wings and air hockey, doesn't get any better than that!

  2. Hi Beautiful,
    I wish I could have stayed for the air hockey but since I already beat you in Crazy Eights that would be enough punshment. I am pretty good at Air Hockey! We always love seeing you, you are adorable. Praying for good results on Friday. :)
    Love you, Aunt Sheila

  3. Our Dear Sweet Noel..........You continue to amaze and uplift us! THANK YOU!!! What a faith you have......."I am in God's hands!".....YES, you are! What a witness you continue to be. I know there are times we all feel like staying in bed or doing something else on Sunday, but you bring yourself and your family to church. What an example. You and your families' love for the Lord shines in all you do. We are thrilled that you like the air-hockey table. Your grandma Diana and I use to have some pretty heated games. Someday we'll play a game for you and let you laugh at us. We love you and consider it an honor to be thought of as part of your family. Get out and enjoy another beautiful day in the North County. Lots of LOVE and HUGS, Paul & Valerie
