Abby's Journey

We'd like to invite you to read Abby's Journey from the beginning. We hope that her story may help a family who is facing the same battle with DIPG. We are praying for a cure and are praying for every child who is diagnosed with cancer.

This is Abby's story.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!
Yesterday we had a great lazy day! We ended the day by Maegan and me going to Brody’s benefit over at the Bavarian Hall. We left the girls with Grandma and Grandpa Miller while we went to show our support and love to Brody and his family as they go through the same struggles and trials that we go through. We were very happy to see such a fantastic turnout for Brody and hopefully they were able to raise good money to help cover all of the extra costs. We were able to spend some time with some of our friends and it was nice to get out. I tried bidding on a few items but got out-bid quickly, but that’s okay!
Today, we went to church and had a great experience there. As we were coming home from church today, Maegan and I both came to the conclusion that we probably won’t be able to take Abby back for a while based on the amount of coughs, sniffles, and sneezes we heard. So figure that we will rotate weeks going to church and staying home with Abby. We hate not going to church, but the risk of Abby getting sick is too great. She has progressed so far and we do not want to jeopardize Abby’s health.
When we got home, Oak Ridge had a trunk-or-treat set up at the school where a lot of families decorated their vehicles and passed out candy. We all got into our costumes-Emily as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Abby as Snow White, Mary-Beth as a Snow Princess, Maegan as a “Lazy Mom” dressed in her pj’s and slippers, and I threw on my college football jersey- and went for some trick or treating! Emily was unsure about all of the scary costumes, but when she started to see her treat bag fill up with candy, she started to look past the costumes and towards the end was ready with the “trick or treat” and then “Thank you”. All of the girls had such a good time today and were excited to get into their treat bags. 

And ‘This Just In’, the representatives from Make-A-Wish will be out tomorrow afternoon to interview Abby and figure out her wish! We are all excited, and so is Abby! I will make sure that I put an update up tomorrow!
