Welcome to Hope Rising!

'When you have come to the edge Of all light that you know, And are about to drop off into the darkness Of the unknown, Faith is knowing One of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or You will be taught to fly'
Author Unknown.

Through this journey, no matter what we've faced....our Faith has taught us how to 'stand' and 'how to fly'

Please join us on our journey of Hope. Some times we are 'standing' and some times we are 'flying' - but one thing is for sure....our two amazing children (Will and Sasha) have been the biggest blessings in our lives.
While they struggle through life-threatening illnesses, they also show us how incredible life truly is. Their joy, laughter, fierceness, and tender spirits lift us and carry us through any storm we've had to weather!

We are HOME!!!!!!

I just wanted to let everyone know we are home SAFE AND SOUND!!!! It took us 5 hours and 4 minutes to get home from Raleigh, NC!
The kids did great on the way home (Sasha had a rough start but did well once we gave her the tylenol w/codeine).
We stopped 3 times....which is a RECORD for us!
We barely hit any traffic at all (just a smidge in DC - but really not much at all!)
Sasha's first up for a shower, then Will - dinner - then bed!
If Will goes to sleep at a reasonable hour, he will be going to school tomorrow (which I hope he does - he's missed enough already!).
Sasha will see her PCP tomorrow morning for a post-op check as well as getting a letter for school to outline restrictions/modifications until she heals.
Overall, she's doing well - she's REALLY limping (almost dragging her right leg) so I am hoping that maybe the PT can give us some ideas as to what to do to help her overcome it...and it may just be that she needs more time, after all - she's less than a week out of surgery.

I am SO SO SO SO SO SO SO happy to be home and back in our element. Don't get me wrong - I loved being with Vance, Whitney, Kira....Jennifer and Julie....but I have come home to a ZILLION and one things to catch up on and take care of now....

Thank you all for following along on our journey these past few weeks. The updates will not come as frequently now that we are home and settled -but if anything comes up with either child, we'll be posting it here!

Blessings to you all! MUCH LOVE!!!!
There's no place like home (click click click)!
Stefani and Ralph
