Today marks one year since Isaiah's diagnosis. We've been aware of this date approaching and today thought a lot about the journey of the last 12 months. In most ways, time has passed more quickly than ever before. In fact we regularly remember as "last year" things that actually happened TWO years ago. It's as if we've "missed" a year. And yet in some ways the last year "feels like six years" (as Sienna put it). You can click here to get a reminder of what was going on one year ago this week (I was, at the time, confused on the dates. His actual diagnosis was May 24). Or, just scroll through the 2007 entries...it's been quite a ride.
We had a great day today visiting Sutter's Fort with our dear friend Janet.
We're so grateful for so many things: being able to play baseball, very few overnight hospital stays, hope, much encouragement from family and friends, our church community, 365 days of rich life together.
