What a fun day!

Well, we went to Playhouse Disney Live today. I wasn't sure how Madelyn would do sitting in an auditorium for 1.5 hours...but SHE LOVED IT! She really got into dancing to the music and got so excited she squealed when Mickey and Minnie came out, and really shrieked when Pooh and Tigger came out. It was so much fun. Mom and I took her and then we went to the park and played for a little while. She has the sniffles and a cough so we are battling that right now. Rick just got over a flu/cold thing that made him sleep about 36 hours straight. I am trying to avoid it, but kinda hard when you are surrounded by sickness! Everything is going good. My brother and Liz are coming down on 3/12. We are really excited to see them. Liz and I are going to run the St. Patricks Day 5k race on 3/15. Rick, my mom, Ronnie and Madelyn are going to watch us then we are going to the parade, it is going to be fun.

We are all still adjusting to life without my dad, but overall I think we are going to be okay. We found a grief support group that meets once a month, so Rick, my mom and I are going to go to that. The next meeting is Tuesday, 3/4. I am looking forward to talking to other people who feel like I do and to see how they have dealt with the pain of losing a loved one.

Madelyn's been doing great. She cut 2 more teeth on the bottom next to her two front teeth. She is trying to cut 2 more bottom molars. It really would be so much better if they just all came in at one time. But can you imagine the horror...go to bed at night and wake up w/a full mouth of chompers!!! Yikes! Her VMA/HVA levels were normal this month. We are scheduled for her MRI on 3/13 at 12:30. I really wish we could have gotten in early in the morning, but they were booked for the whole month except the day we have to register her for school. YEP THATS RIGHT FOLKS SHE IS GOING TO SCHOOL. We are signing her up for private school/day care 3 days a week. We are really excited, well I am. Rick is having a hard time with it. But I just keep thinking about how much fun she will have w/the other kids. She LOVES going to the nursery at church, so I really think she is going to do well with it. We will update when we get the results of the MRI. We have an appt. w/our Oncologists on 3/18 to go over the MRI, but no way am I going to be able to wait 5 whole days for the results...so hopefully we can update sooner than that.

Thanks for the continued prayers and thoughts for our family. We appreciate them so much!

With love,
The Bells
