Update on Chloe 12/8

I saw Chloe yesterday. She looks good! It was good to see her participate in the Sunday school Christmas Program. I wish I could've been there. It was the first Christmas Program I have ever missed in all my years of going to Sunday School. I thought about that while I was at work. This was my first Christmas Program I didn't go to. It's been quite a few years since I've been in one (Sunday school wise I mean). But that's part of growing older. And quite frankly ... I don't like being up on stage anyway. Still ... my favorite programs had to have been "The Case of the Missing Christmas" and "Lone Star Gulch."

Team in Training!!! 12-8-07

Yay!! We just finished 10 miles today...we are now officially in the double digits!! Wooo hoo!!!! Go Team in Training!!

Chloe met the team along with Danya our other honored team mate. They were there to cheer us along. We have walkers, runners and cyclists...we all made it! Our entire team is up to 124 thousand in fund-raising and our OC Team alone has raised over 50 thousand to date. Thank you all so much for donating to this super important cause!
By the way, I came in second place overall for total dollars raised...but some checks that came in last night put me in first place!! Thank you!!!! Now it's time for an ice bath..oh joy!

Awesome update on Chloe 12-05-07
I am happy to announce that Chloe made her numbers today (855) and will be starting her last phase of treatment tomorrow morning!!
Please pray for her procedure tomorrow, she will get a lumbar puncture where they will inject chemo into her spine. Not her favorite procedure.

This phase lasts for about three years but it is the final phase of her treatment. Yay!!! We are so happy to be able to finally get there!! Thank you all for your continued support and many prayers. We love you all!!

Love and thanks,
Karla & Family
