This has been a difficult time for the Riles family. Mumsey was diagnosed with an acute leukemia and is currently at MD Anderson getting treatment. We were able to go home and visit with Mumsey and Pops before she made the trip down to Houston. We laughed and we cried. But, we are already seeing God being glorified through this time. Her treatment is going really well and the doctors are very happy with how she is handling it all. We have been astonished by the number of people who are praying, giving, and visiting each and every day. We are ready for the day that she comes home and feels up to making mud pies with the girls!
(and she's even learned how to Skype! . . . the girls love getting to see and talk to her)
And little Miss Adison is turning my hair gray by the minute. We've had the privilege of visiting 2 emergency room's in the last month. (honestly, I don't know how we've made it this long) She fell in the shower and split open her chin while we were at Mumsey and Pop's house. And then fell off of a chair at Aunt Dana's and her teeth almost when right through her upper lip.
On both field trips, she made friends very quickly and managed to escape the infamous "shot". She had her chin glued the first trip and just a big fat bloody lip from her second fall. Hopefully, we can make it until next year before having to fork out another deductible.
(and she managed to pop-open the glued chin, just as we crossed the state line!)
Mederma is adequately stocked in our house now.
