Peyton Made it Home

Little itty bitty Peyton made it home last Thursday, and has been doing great! I even got to finally hold her. She's so tiny and precious. The York's can have visitors, but they just ask that if you are sick with any kind of illness then please don't come over until you are all better. I have a slight sore throat coming on, so that means I'm not allowed over. Bummer. Also, Summer can't leave her house unless she is going to the doctor for six months, SIX months. I'm sure she would love some phone calls because I can imagine she's going to go stir crazy!!!

One last thing...You know how I like to talk about poop - keep Peyton in your prayers that she has a BM - bowel movement. That's what Summer has asked me to pray for.

As for big brother Trace, he is finally warming up to her, and as far as I know has only hit her once the day they brought her home. Guess that's a jealous older brother for ya! ;)
This is Peyton saying, "Libby. No more pictures please."

Pray for Summer and their Baby

Summer was rushed in ambulance from the Cedar City Hospital last night around midnight to St. George's Hospital. She's had really high blood pressure and has been monitored the last two weeks, but as of last night her blood pressure was extremely high. The baby still hasn't developed fully for her to give birth, so they are keeping her in the hospital until the lungs of her baby have developed. After they are developed they can have her give birth, however the baby will be a preemie.

I hope we can use this blog as a way to put the prayers out there for her and the baby. She will be in St. George, as of now a couple of weeks, and I'm sure she would love visitors. Please pray for her and the rest of our extended family.

Also, Summer does have her cell phone, and you can reach her on that.

A 2nd Opinion

I took mom to her doctor today up here at the Utah Cancer Specialists. It was a lengthy appt with a lot of sitting around, but after looking at all of her paperwork from her previous doctor, he said...... let's have you take a break from chemo! I think that was just what she wanted to hear. He said that the chemo she has been doing worked quite well and has stopped the growth of cancer, but at this point it can't do much more for her. He wants her to take a break, go in for monthly testing and as soon as the blood tests show the cancer growing again, he is going to put her on an ORAL form of medication called Tarceva, that she only has to take once a day. It won't make her as sick or as tired and the only side effect is a rash similar to acne (which can be treated with creams). This oral medicine can give her up to four more years of life (that's the bummer part, but we already knew this cancer wasn't curable).

So, let's wish her a speedy recovery and a long time of being able to do what she wants before this cancer starts coming back!!! And KEEP PRAYING FOR HER!!!!

Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

Sorry this is so late, I've been busy but here are some pictures of when Libby and I (Jessie) went up to Salt Lake and were able to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. We thank Anisa for getting us the tickets to go through. It is a beautiful temple, but really is there an ugly temple? I think not. Libby, Anisa, Logan, Sydney, and I were able to go through and enjoy the beauty and spirit in the temple. I can't wait to be able to go through more temples and see the beauty in all of them. It was really busy but a great experience.

Family BBQ

Hey folks, we must just love our family....

We would like to have a family BBQ on Saturday June 13th at 6:00 in my parent's back yard.  (It's the day before my mom's b-day).  We'll do it in the evening sometime.  Leave a comment and let me know if you can attend and I'll put out the food assignments.

Libby got mad at me because I didn't update the family blog.

Mom had another PET scan.  It looks pretty favorable.  There are two specific tumors that aren't shrinking much, but they are also not growing.  So, they're still planning on doing a couple more chemos.  Keep her in your prayers.

BBQ Time!!!

Now WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO GET EVERY ONE'S ATTENTION ABOUT A FAMILY BBQ? Do I have to send out invitations - which cost money and time...which I don't have. Do I have to make individual phone calls? What? What do I need to do to get us all together? As for now, I will try to do the blog thing. But most likely it will end up being a phone call. The plan is FRIDAY, April 3, 2009. I know, I know. I would love to do it on a Saturday but here is the thing - Aaron and Kim are going to be out here that week, BUT they leave Saturday if you want to give me any guff - take it up with Aaron and Kim! Now, who wants to bring what? I'll figure out a list of things and when I make my phone calls - which will probably be this Sunday before I leave for Florida, please make a note of what you are bringing and mark your calendar. OH YEAH - Gosh, the time, the time. Since it is a Friday and most people (like MYSELF) work we are going to try to aim for around 4-5:00p.m. ISH. I know this is going to be kind of difficult, but can we please try to make it work. Who knows when we'll all get to be in the same place at the same time again.

P.S. This shindig is going down at Cash's place in Kanarraville - good middle meeting spot! See ya then!

I smell like Papa

What smell comes to mind when you think of Papa?

You guessed it!!! Listerine.

My dentist threatened me that I would have 3 cavities next time I come in if I didn't floss and use mouth wash.  I'm too lazy to floss, so I figured I would at least use the little samples of Listerine that he gave me.  Now I smell like Papa!!!

It's Time...

It's time again for us Williams Clan to begin planning a BBQ!  This is the plan for now; I know that Aaron and Kim will be here the end of March first of April.  I think they leave April 4th.  If that be the case than I was wondering if we could do a BBQ for that Friday, April 3, 2009.  This is still months away, but I figured we should get planning it now.  Yes, Cash is happy to have the shindig at his place.  Let us know what time on that Friday will work.  Hopefully we can get everyone together.  Let's make it work!  

Also, we are in hopes that we can have a big 4th of July BBQ at Cash's place as well.  However, that is a lot further away than April.  Stay tuned, and we'll plan the 4th of July activities!

Update on Debbie

Please keep mom in your prayers, put her name on the prayer roll, fast for her, etc,  She had a PET scan yesterday and the tumors are not shrinking much.  Her blood looks okay, but the tumors themselves are still there.  They are going to try a new formula of Chemo, but otherwise things aren't looking good.  Keep praying for her!!!
