    This is also Emilee’s first Father’s Day without her daddy…we are in Colorado right now, I truly thank the Lord, because I otherwise don’t know how I would get through it without his smile as he opens his gifts, his twinkling eyes when he would reach for her to say “thank you” when he was all fininished..in his honor for this day…my brother took Em to Home Depot and she picked out two purple flowering plants to plant and live on in the backyard…it is extremely painful to watch others celebrate and wonder why our little one will not have him here…but I know he is here spiritually, watching, laughing, and cheering us on as we go on without him. Please know you are not alone, and are so very, very loved by all of us here, and by Jesus too!!

    Love, Heather

    When Lee and I went last year in April, you have 3 to 4 days of intense testing before you even see a doctor. The cost for the four days was around $27,000. We were very, very blessed to have wonderful insurance that paid for every penny. Lee was not a candidate for transplant. So needless to say, I can’t even begin to imagine how much that would all cost.

    Best wishes,
    Heather

    Dear Carol, Mercy Me is one of my favorite christian groups I love to listen to when I need sometime for myself…the song you have posted is one that I believe I heard the story as to how the group wrote the song…a young man in his 20’s was not a believer for all of his life..one night at his brother’s, he gave his life to the Lord…on his way home, he was killed in a car accident…we never seem to understand the Lord’s way…but I do know that what He knows of us…is much, much greater and better than what we tend to think is right for us…but my hope remains that as it gets closer to being the third month of my life without my beloved Lee, God IS giving me strength and my hope is one day I will be with him again.

    Love,
    Heather

    Carol..when I lost Lee just two months ago, I thought the very same thing…now what will I do with me? Just know that right now seems soooo very, very overwhelming and you simply do not know what in the world you are going to do…but you already said it…one day at a time. My very best friend told me after we left the hospital, “you know how you told Lee go baby, go…he is looking down telling you the very same thing…go baby, go….” my heart aches for you and please know that I will be praying for you.

    Love,

    Barbara….The Lord is close to those who are brokenhearted…Psalm 34…Lee had someone print this bible verse on a plaque for Emilee and I before he passed away…it brings me hope…as I pray it will for you…so very sorry to hear of your loss.

    Love,

    My heart just breaks for you. I was with Lee both night and day before he passed. Five minutes before he stopped breathing, I left the room to go get a toothbrush…I know that he knew I left…I do believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that our loved one’s let go and go when they are at peace with everything around them. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers as well.

    Love,
    Heather

    Oh Kris…when I read your post I thought of Lee…the things you as patients have to go through is UNBELIEVABLE! At the same time, your courage, stregth, strong will and fight are INCREDIBLE! I just remember seeing him out of the tub one day and gasping at what his skin looked like, and remember him saying how he hurt on the “inside” of it…I agree with debrah, desitin is very good…and Lee really liked Aquaphor…the ointment kind. My prayers are with you and know how proud I am of people like your wonderful self!

    Love,

    Hey Katie, from what I understand, you can’t be working at all…at least that was our situation…Lee was able to collect from the time he applied and was accepted including all of the back time he had missed. If you have children under 18 you can collect for their benefit for them as well. Good luck and God’s blessings to you and your family.
