"In the dark dreary nights, when the storm is at its most fierce, the lighthouse burns bright so the sailors can find their way home again. In life the same light burns. This light is fueled with love, faith, and hope. And through life's most fierce storms these three burn their brightest so we also can find our way home again."
~Author Unknown.

Ever facing forward,doing my very best to fix my gaze upon that beacon,who's glow can often vacillate dramatically between a glimmer and a blinding light and regardless of circumstances that surrounds us daily,it still shines.

Zoey seems to be feeling a bit better.Three major antibiotics will tend to do that when infection is dragging you down.In her case,that darn g-tube is the culprit.That g-tube looks one thousand percent better and for Zoey's comfort,we are very grateful for that.She did go up ever so slightly in her white count,.22, but we tend to not get too overly excited about that as Zoey has been known to take a few steps forward and like 10 back, in a very short period of time.We will however, have a better idea when Friday's labs come.Zoey's disposition is wonderful and she continues to plug along with very few major issues.We are forever grateful for that and know,on the 4th floor, this is a rarity and a blessing.Love to you all and thank you for your steadfast friendship and your faith filled prayers.We are lifted and carried by them all daily.Prayers please, especially also for Sol Merie,Pablo,Madison,Kai,Sarah,Justine,Jaden,Ricca and Klein.Warriors of the fiercest kind.All of them.

Zoey, Zoey, Zoey, love the pictures; they are so good I feel like she is in this room. I guess it's her super amazing spirit. So good to hear she is feeling better, what a rough go. Prayers and my love are constant for all of you. Jake is a sweetheart, so beautiful. Prayers for all the tiny warriors with such big hearts and souls. Thinking of you, bless you, Christi Harman
