A few items ....

First,my dear friend Kele created this button that you see to the right side, for our precious Zoey.We would be honored if everyone and anyone would post this on their sites or email it to family and friends, so Zoey's story could be heard and we could have people,potentially from all over the world,praying for this precious child.It is easy to grab,just copy and paste the code,simple as that.The poem from below is from another friend Carey who's sweet little Chelsea has successfully and courageously fought and won her battle with AML.We have got to believe that Zoey will do the same.I did post an update last night,if you happened to miss it because of all these added things.The news this morning is much the same.Mark said she rested well.She seems to be doing her thing ..... taking what's handed to her and going with it.I am a bit nervous.I just wonder if this is the calm before the storm.Every child is different but we just wonder when some of the side effects will emerge.Mouth sores and such.Poor baby.I can't imagine.We plan on talking to her oncologist today.He of course can't answer all ours questions or rather answer them the way we want to hear them,if you know what I mean.So that is all for now.I still didn't get to bed until 3am.I am still wiped out.I have no appetite either.I know I have to find something that sounds good to me.I just haven't found it yet.Maybe Jamba Juice.I miss Zoey so much but Mark is doing an awesome job.He is an incredible dad.I am blessed to be walking this journey with him.More to follow later I am sure.Just keep those prayers coming.

Heather,
When Evy was in the NICU after surgery, I was reminded daily that God wouldn't ask more of me than what He and I could do together (paraphrased :) - but I got it! The same is true for you, Zoey and your entire family. Continued prayers and blessings.

Heather, I am just now catching up on blogs, but I came here first after getting a few emails about Zoey. I was so saddened and shocked to hear Zoey has AML... you are in for a long journey, but like with everything else, Zoey will show you exactly how strong she is. However, she NEEDS her mama. You HAVE to take care of yourself, please! I KNOW it's hard, I know you feel like you just want to puke, but please please please be well, for her. We will be following along and praying. I've grabbed Zoey's button. I hate that you are part of this sucky world of cancer. I hate it hate it hate it.
Keep on keeping on... and know that we're praying and we're right here with you... if only virtually.

I'm a complete stranger but heard about your little girl from another blog. She will be in my prayers and so will you. Kids are troopers, and sometimes I think them being sick is more painful for parents than it is for them. I hope you are able to find at least a little peace soon so you are able to take care of your needs as well as hers. God Bless.

Heather,
My children and I will be praying for little miss Zoey everyday. She is one tough cookie and I believe she will show you just how tough she is by hurdling just one more obstacle. She is amazing and so are you. The both of you are so inspiring and I wish you the very best. Try to take care of yourself too. I know it is hard.
Praying for all of you. Sara

Heather, Mark, Zoey and family - I too will be praying for you and know that when your hearts are heavy and you feel too burdened to pray, know that I will be one of many that will carry you to Jesus on my knees.

I just wanted to let you know we're all praying for you guys. I learned about your story from the special k's. I've grabbed your button and put it on my blog. There will be many prayers being sent your way.

I came to know of your site and your family through my friend Elaine and her daughter Sophie. I have posted the link on our family's blog in hopes of getting more prayers for your precious little girl!

Good to hear that Zoey is resting and "doing her thing". Please, please take care of yourself as you need to be rested and nourished for your sweet princess. My friends and family are praying for Zoey everyday. If there is anything you need please let me know. I'll be there in a heartbeat. God Bless.

Button has been added to my blog! Zoey will be covered in a multitude of prayers from all over the world!

Hi Heather, have sent Zoey's site and story all around, so those prayers continue, like a stone dropping in water and making perfect ripples. We are all standing beside you and Mark and the kids, loving Zoey. Good to hear she did well today, and thank you for sharing your love and devotion to Mark, it's beautiful. Please start taking care of yourself so you can be healthy for Zoey and all. I understand how difficult that is though, but want to offer some encouragement in that area, because we certainly all love and need you too. Our complete hearts are with you all, Christi Harman
