May 12th, 2012. Day +793. Happy Mother’s Day.   3 comments

I again apologize for the late post.  We have all been doing well.  Amy, Charlotte, Molly and I spent the majority of April with sinus issues, colds and other normal springtime illnesses.  There was no point in the DSC05260month when at least two of us weren’t sick with something.  There were two weekends in a row where I took Charlotte to the Columbus Urgent Care.  Once we noticed that her eye had some discharge and we thought she might be getting pink eye.  We went home with eyedrops and she was a total champion with them.  The following week, she was complaining of her throat hurting and we noticed some white spots in her throat so we took her in to get swabbed for strep.  It came back negative, but she was such a trooper in the hospital.  It made me so proud of how big she is getting and how far she has come over the last few years.

DSC05287Charlotte started soccer practice two weeks ago, and she has a really fun time running around like a normal 4 year old!  In April, they both went to the dentist and did wonderfully and we enjoyed getting together with our families to celebrate Easter.  We also went bowling as a family for the first time and had a terrific time!  We will all be doing that again soon!  It was a blessed month for our family.

I want to wish Amy a happy 10th anniversary (last Friday).  It has been a wonderful 10 years filled with quite a few memorable moments.  I can’t say that I have loved all of the moments we have had over the last few years, but I will say that I am so glad I had Amy to go through them with.  It has been stressful to say the least, and it really hasn’t gotten much easier for Amy or me, but without each other to lean on, we would have been lost.

And Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mothers out there.  Being a parent of a child with cancer is a hard thing to do.  Being the Grandmother of a child with cancer is undoubtedly harder.  Thank you Amy, Mom and Jean for all of your motherly love, patience and support.DSC05369

I still want to ask for prayers for my Uncle Dean. He has his good days and his bad days, but he has remained positive through it all.

And we ask for continued prayers for all of the children and families living with a cancer diagnosis.

Thank you all again for thinking of us.

  1. The girls are getting so big and grown up! Happy Anniversary Lon & Amy – we had so much fun at your wedding, hard to believe it’s been 10 years, but then again someitmes I’m sure it seems much longer (as do all good marriages!). Keep up the good (& hard) work, you’re raising a wonderful family. Love & hugs to everyone!

  2. Happy to see such “regular” news from the Elske house. Prayers for your Uncle and family.

  3. So delighted with all your news! Dan & I are also parents of a child with cancer. Beth, our daughter, has breast cancer; she begins chemo on Friday. She had a mastectomy 6 weeks ago. She’s much older than CJ but she’ll always be our little girl. Keep on loving each other & clinging to God. Amy, happy Mother’s Day! And happy anniversary to you both!!
