Hi all. Ella was really tired today, and her poor little belly is so stretched out, she looks like she has an outie belly button. She had energy for a bit this morning, but the rest of the day she was pretty tired- even after she napped today. The good thing was she didn't get sick this time after chemo- yea! I know I should be happier about this, but I don't know how to be. She just isn't the same and it is breaking my heart. I watched one of Ella's friends playing today- and laughing- and running. All I could think it "It's not fair."

We are going to go cheer daddy on for his 1st of 3 marathons. This will be our 1st trip with Ella, and I'm nervous- but I want her to go. I don't want her life to just be chemo treatments for the next 2 years. So, whenever possible- we are going to take her places.

Scared, but doing it seems to be normal for us now.
Have a good weekend.


  1. We continue to pray for you guys...Alex hopes Ella feels better soon.

  2. At church today we all prayed together in the Explorers Room for Ella and the whole Van Gheem family. There are LOTS of people praying and lifting you guys up. God is good, He is with you and He is in control. Believe it, believe it!
    I hope you all had a great weekend in WI watching "daddy" run!
