Sorry for such a late posting, we just got back from a wonderful benefit concert for Phoebe where we all had a great time. This morning unexpectedly found us dining out for breakfast with friends from Lindale which was a great way to start the day. We enjoyed visiting and the boys had a good time with their friends.
When we got to the hospital, Phoebe had on red, heart shaped sunglasses and several big, plastic diamond rings and was rummaging through her box of trinkets. What a sight to behold! She was sitting up and visiting and putting stickers on paper, it was so sweet. Nathan and I spent the afternoon with her while Grammy took the boys home for the afternoon and we got to have some much needed snuggle time.
Tonight we went to Denton where some wonderful friends who are like family to me held a benefit concert and auction for Phoebe. It was incredible the way people banded together to make it happen and we were beyond blessed. The barbeque people volunteered their service and time and fabulous food, the band was incredible, the singers excellent, even the police officer there volunteered his time to be a part of the event for Phoebe. Wow.
People donated some amazing things for the auction and I couldn’t believe the generosity that was overflowing in that place tonight. It was a wonderful time, and it was good to be away from the hospital and out of Dallas for a few hours too. It was a beautiful night to be outside and I just want to thank everyone who was a part of this evening.
Phoebe continues to improve little by little and we are still on track to move back to the Oncology floor by Tuesday if she keeps it up. Please pray for her breathing to strengthen so that she can maintain her oxygen on her own, for her withdrawals, that she would be able to continue to wean off the meds as comfortably as possible and for her strength to grow.
It was a good day, a nice change of pace and we are feeling encouraged. Thank you all for praying for us, for loving us, for surprising us with your generosity. It’s humbling to be on the receiving end of so much generosity.
