Thank you for the beads that have been sent from strangers and family! We've received many hair beads and are in need of more large, glass beads, and o/jump rings as well as the pins. We could also use 16 gauge wire in multiple colors and 26 gauge wire in multiple colors.If you'd like to get some that'd be awesome! You can send them here to, 2826 After Glow, Ln. Lehi UT, 84043.
Look for your special notes from Drake in the mail this week to all who have sent presents, packages and beads as well as dinners to our home!We've also been told Drakes 2nd surgery is on August 13th and he will most likely not be at school for awhile. Pretty discouraging... Here's some pictures!

Nothing more to say. My heart hurts for all my boys right now. I've watched my oldest cry out of fear for his brother now into jealousy because Drake requires more of my time. My youngest seems to not notice too much because he just wants to play and ride his bike outside. I've witnessed my husband yearning for my attention and a job that requires all of me as well. As I stated above which my (step)mother has to me, "A mother is only as happy as her saddest child." Today has been hard to not be home. I'm back from work Friday evening and I hope I find the strength within to keep my, "work" face on until then.
This week has been full of visitors, Dr. appt's and of course the flu! Thanks to all of our visitors. We've had strangers now become friends who have just shown up at our doorstep! Thanks for all the goodies from our neighbors and all the love and support! We have been told we have to wait 4-6 weeks to do the cataract procedure because Drake's eye isn't stabilizing.......Here are some pictures of our visitors, Dr. Hoffman, the ride to Children's Hospital and Drake's eye!
