My Awesome Wife

Posted in family, locks of love on March 25, 2008 by Avery

Easter Sunday

About once a year, maybe twice, my family dresses in something other than jeans and t-shirts for church. I hate it, but the kids like it, so Easter is normally the day we do this. We do make a cute family, even if Yosef won’t smile if a camera is in his face.  Of course my wife is awesome for being able to pull this off, I mean getting me to wear shoes to church is a miracle.

Heather Before

 But Heather is more awesome than that! You see here here, looking quite normal, but what you don’t know is that one of her best freinds is dealing with stage 4 ovarian cancer.  The Kemo has made her lose her hair, and has beat her up pretty bad. Now our daughter donates her hair  to Locks of Love about every 2 years, I always hate to see it go, but Kaitlyn loves doing it, and it’s been her idea all along. Heck I even tried to talk her out of it the first time. 

Well my awesome wife wanted to be there for her freind, so in a total act of compassion, she decided to donate her hair to locks of love as well. But not the normal 11 inch donation, no. Heather is more awesome than that.

Locks of Love after

No she donated all 27 inches of it!

Now tell me i don’t have a beautiful wife!

Ok, i know it’s been a while, many reasons for that, but I’m coming out of my semit retirement to have a central place to post updates on the newest saga of Lucas’ burn.

So we have had an issue in the past with a staff infection from his burn. Oral meds worked to clear it up, but it came back. Our local doc didn’t want to do anything to hurt the burn so he told us to come back down o UNC to have them look at it.

So for the next 5 days we get to sit in UNCH in isolation as he has to be quaranteened.

Of course this would be the final week of school for the kids, so Heather can’t miss school. And of course she was planning on visiting some friends up in the frozen tundra of the hellish north east next week, so the schedule in that is up in the air… of course air fair doesn’t refund squat.

His meds are doing great, and he is perfecly happy to have his own tv that he can control and watch what he wants to watch, but we’ll see if he is still that happy at the end of the week.
