Another post for today...and update on Jodi!

Jodi had a rough few days last week with really high fevers..but she is doing much better now! Her blood counts are up and her platelets counts are almost at the level of people without Leukemia!!! Yay we are so very excited.  So now we just wait to see what the doctor says...I am hoping everything keeps going well and my family get to come home from Houston in a couple weeks!  Keep the prayers coming though!
This past Saturday we had a huge fundraiser in Greenwood selling t-shirts, baked goods, and gift cards and other donations local businesses donated.  We raised a lot of money (in my opinion) to help Jodi with her medical bills.  Of course, I don't want to stop because what we all have raised so far is only a fraction of what she will now we want to have a hot dog supper at my church.  We still have shirts left and a friend of mine wants to set up a poker run which would be awesome.  There are like 3 or 4 possible events to help Jodi and I hope we raise a lot more to help her out!
Here are some pictures from the event this weekend...

  1. Praise Jesus for improvement for your Sis, Jodi :) Her fundraiser looked like a huge success! Pictures are gorgeous and im sure dont do justice on your cakes either! Beautiful! I will continue to pray for her and your family!

  2. Looks like a HUGE success! So glad to hear things are looking up.
