I realized going through some of my picture files that I had never posted our trip to CA in Nov.
This is our daughter and family. Kris is the pastor of a church out there. Our granddaughters are such sweethearts. We miss all of them not being closer to us. I know some of you know that feeling.
We went straight from the airport to the girl's school. We were hoping to get there for a special assembly that day. Notice the shoe boxes in the kids hands. Olivia was all smiles with hers that day.
This is Emma. She was helping the younger kids to stack their boxes. They were all filled with goodies for under privileged children. The Samaritan 's Purse was going to distribute them.
Look at all those boxes they collected!
The girl's love their school!
More importantly, they love the Lord! They sang as a family on Sunday at church. Our daughter teaches voice and piano students. She has done a great job teaching the girls both of these.
We took a day to go to Newport Beach for a whale watch tour. When we arrived Olivia spotted this great looking bunch of firefighters and scurried right over and asked for a picture with them.
Neither of those girls are shy...lol
We had a little tailgate lunch and headed to the dock.
The people on the tour ahead of us were not too happy. They didn't see a thing out in that huge ocean.
Hubby, Andrea & I were waiting to board.
Hubby told the captain he had to find dolphins, whales or something for Emma and Olivia to see that day. We were not having any luck either when the captain decided to go out further and show the girls these sea lions.
Then all of a sudden he spotted a pod of dolphins in the distance and headed over to them.
There were thousands playing in the waves. Popping in and out of the water putting on quite a show. The girls were delighted to say the least! So were we! lol
Sometimes we saw three at a time jumping together. No whales though!
We had Thanksgiving together and thanked the Lord for time together and his goodness to us!
On that trip we saw first hand the first episode of pain that Olivia had concerning her tumor. Although her parents rushed her to the doctor that day, they could find nothing and sent her home. Since that time she had several episodes that sent her to urgent care, the doctor's office and the ER. Two weeks ago they discovered the tumor and removed it with one of her ovaries.
I thank all of you who prayed for her.
She's had a bit of a relapse this past week. Her temp. started at 103.6 a few days ago and Sunday was up to 104. It continues to fluctuate. Today has only been 102. Doctors believe it is a viral infection.
She has been treated with antibiotics for the last 3 or 4 days. We are praying for better days. She's been through so much lately.
Tomorrow we should hear on the biopsy.
