Oh was truly one I wish I could forget. The kids didn't make it to the flu clinic. They all have colds and Cara and Allie had fevers, so I didn't want to have them vaccinated while being sick. But, considering I have asthma, I decided that I would go. I arrived at 1:15 to get in line for the clinic that started at 2:00. I received numbers 136 and 134 for the two different vaccines. I got my shots at 4:15. I will spare you all of the details of my experience, but I will tell you that I was shocked by the lack of organization that our county displayed at the clinic. Not so much once you got into the actual "shot room," but what occurred in the 2 hours and 45 minutes before that was unbelievable.

Anyway, when I finally arrived home and had dinner with the family (Chinese take out!) I was quickly, and thankfully zapped backed into perspective by an email I received. A blog reader emailed me and brought to my attention the story of a boy, a boy who is dying from Neuroblastoma.

I don't know many details, other than his name is Noah, he is 5, and he has been battling this disease for 2 1/2 years. He is not expected to live until Christmas, so his family is celebrating this weekend. Their wish is so to have as many Christmas cards arrive to their home as possible. I'm not sure if I send one out tomorrow that it will make it there this weekend, but with your help I'd like to see MANY cards sent to Noah from all of Brady's friends. Here is his name and address:

Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon, MI

Thank you for your help on this! Most importantly, help me keep this family lifted up in prayer. I don't have any website or caringpage info on him yet, if I do I will pass it along.

Perfectly sweet Allison turns one tomorrow. We are celebrating her birthday officially on Sunday. I'm so grateful for her little life...more on that tomorrow...
