It's 5:00 a.m. and I just can't sleep. I know we have a long trip today and I was hoping to get in a full eight hours of rest --- but I just can't sleep. We are going this morning to tell my 21 year old son Trevor about the diagnosis and Tanner told me he wants to tell him himself. After our family meeting, we will get on the road to Arkansas. I know it will be an emotional time before we start our trip today.
Many of our family and friends have come over this weekend and brought plenty of snacks, books, and other essentials for us to take with us - and Kelsey's (Trevor's girlfriend) parents gave us three nights at a hotel near the hospital. I can't even begin to tell you what my family at the PIE office here in Fort Worth have done for us already as we start this journey. There are no words adequate to express our appreciation for all the love and support we have been receiving. We have been blessed with the best of family and friends.
