Karly has slept most of the day today. Her stomach has been unsettled and threw up one of her medications. She will need to re-take it shortly. It is one of the meds for the cancer regime. Her head is still not as bad as it had been, so I am still thinking her leak is on the mend. Aunt Debbie brought homemade turkey and noodles, so Karly has been eating them every day. It is a special treat. She brought taco meat also, but Karly hasn't gotten to it yet.

Her room is the nicest on the floor, at least I think so. Pam brought Christmas decorations including a beautifully decorated, lighted tree, a glittery HOPE sign, wreath, and two strands of mini lights with greenery, and on a daily basis we are grinning at the beauty of it all. I think the nurses stop by just to be in the room. It is so positive. In fact, one just came by and repeated what I just wrote. It has been confirmed!

My sister, Angie, called me awhile ago with another story of outpouring love from a family up in her area. Not only did they contribute to Be The Match, but as a family have decided to give what they would spend on Christmas to us. "For unto us a child is born, to us a Son is given...," quotes Isaiah 9:6. They have taken the "unto us" and made it "into us Jesus was given". They are being Jesus to us in a way that they can. We have never met them, but the Jesus in them is outpouring love to us in a tangible way. I cannot even speak the story without crying. I am feeling such overwhelming love.

On his way home from church today, Tracy was contemplating what to fix for lunch. He was greeted with a home cooked meal when he entered the house. What a blessing! Thanks Kelly...again!

"And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
and so it is, here in Maryland.
