Mood:  surprised

Hi All,

How was your weekend?? Ours was a decent one. We got to celebrate Ryan's Birthday with tacos and enchiladas for dinner and a wonderful soccer ball cake. Morgan was tired after eating 1 taco so we put her to bed in the addition room. As we were singing "Happy Birthday" to Ryan, we heard a small was Morgan joining in! I tell ya', even when we think she is fast asleep, she doesn't miss much!!

Morgan's pain started increasing again, so we have upped her pain meds another 4 times since my last update. Despite the meds being enough to level a horse....Morgan is sleepy, yes, but she manages to wake up and interact when we have new visitors or she needs to accomplish something. I don't know how she does it - I truly don't. Then again, this is how Morgan is. Since the day she was born, she never wanted to miss anything and she was very open in expressing her opinion.

Her body's condition that has brought about the increase in meds has brought about other interventions to address other problems. Yesterday, they started her on oxygen. She fights it when she can, so her air cannula (tube) comes off when she's awake, on when she's asleep. Big breath...the reason why...

With so much tumor in her little body, it looks like the tumor near (on?) her heart is causing the most visible symptoms right now. Her heart seems to be working very hard, but her blood pressure and circulation is not reflecting that. Donna (her hospice nurse), says that there was a big change in Morgan's physical presentation from Friday to Morgan's Time could be soon. Now, I hesitate to write that because "soon" has been going on for several weeks now. But looking at her.....I dunno, it could very well be soon.... Donna said though, that having her heart give out is probably the best way to go, considering all the other ways this damn cancer can present the end. This is just so unfair....

Morgan is doing everything she can to get things in order. It is like she is "nesting". She has several things to knock off of it before she'll relax. There are several people that are on that list also. If the spirit moves you to visit or call....please do....chances are, Morgan wants to see you too. She, like always, knows what she wants..and she'll let me know if it is too much. While this isn't an open invitation for everyone to visit/call, if you feel strongly about it..chances are, there is a reason - and that is OK.

Well, so much for a short update. I am still on auto pilot, doing what I need to do. Karl and Ryan seem to be OK with it far. Will update in a day or two.

Thanks for checking in, the support, prayers, and positive energies.

Take care and God Bless,

We just heard about your web site, and visited today for the first time. It is so good to be in touch without bothering you all. I loved seeing Morgan's photo album.

Love, Gloria and Laura

Dear Morgan,

I have been thinking of you a lot. We miss you at school. I am sorry you have cancer- I have liked having you as my friend. I'm going to say a prayer for you.

Oh Lisa, I wish I could give you a hug right now. I've been where you are and i know how hard it is. I am sending you BIG virtual hugs.

I had put off coming down to Francie's (and hopefully a visit with Morgan) tomorrow because I have a cold and I didn't want to bring it into your home. I was hoping by Thursday I would feel a bit better. I would so love to come and see you all Thursday if it is ok, but I will come down tomorrow if that is ok too. I just don't want to bring any harm (cold germs) into your house. You can let me know.

My prayer for you tonight is one of peace.

I only know you Morgan through a posting on the CKCS list but I just wanted to say Hi! I am so touched by your strength. I am so glad you have Izzie to take care of you and give you hugs. Bless you.

Hi Morgan:

You don't know me, but I wanted to let you know that your are in my thoughts and prayers everyday.

Hi Karl, Lisa and Ryan:

I have been thinking of you all as well, and praying that God will give you the courage and strength you need to get through this very difficult time. While I have never lost a sister or a child, I can only imagine what the three of you are preparing yourself for. From the sounds of Lisa's most recent entries, it seems that you are handling things realistically (as hard as it may be), and preparing for what is ahead. If there is anything I can do (I sincerely mean this), PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.

Take care and God Bless - Kim

Dear, dear Lisa,
May our Lord continue to give you strength and that special gift of living in the day and seeing, and hanging onto, those precious moments that you have - I can feel the weight you carry in your updates - my heart is continually praying for you, for your sweet little Morgan, and Ryan and Karl. Our Stephen, along with Rob and I, and his brothers and sisters, have been praying for you all since we saw you last. Thank you for keeping us updated with this site. I know it must be one more thing for you to do, but it does help us know just what we should be praying about. Just wanted to send our love.
God give you peace, comfort and strength.
my heart is with you,
