All Hail to the Queen!

Drum roll please......Yes, it is true! Lisa was voted Homecoming Queen at West Salem High, and I can't think of a more deserving queen!  She looked beautiful and smiled as much as she could! There were tons of family and friends cheering her on, and she probably felt blinded by all the flashes! So proud of you Lisa and so proud of the class of 2013 for  recognizing  Lisa's true beauty and strength!
Very exciting day for Lisa and friends! Stay tuned to see if she is crowned QUEEN!

I haven't added to this post for dished out another blow and through it all my mind kept going back to what Gordan and Gail are going through. My son Connor, who has gone through alot of the journey with Lisa, was in a serious car accident last friday. He had been working on a farm with long hours and little sleep and he fell asleep going to work. They life flighted him up to a Portland hospital where he was in ICU for a few days. He is home now but he has a skull fracture, had eye surgery, a broken collar bone and some slight liver and kidney damage. We are very thankful for his life being spared. All through the process we received messages from Gail and Lisa just as we have sent to them. When we came home we were able to go over and see Lisa for a little bit and the 2 of them had a sweet moment of sharing.

Lisa has been sleeping much more, I am a little out of touch with what her day to day has been BUT I do know something!!!!! Lisa was voted as a Princess on the homecoming court at West Salem High school. A couple of kids came to tell her that and put a crown on her head. That is so cool! She was very excited and we are very proud of her!

There really has not been any big changes for Lisa over the last couple weeks. Hospice continues to come in and help control her pain. She struggles with the pain in her head shifting from hurting on the top of her head and then going to the sides of her head. The Dr. says this is because her brain shifts due to the swelling and she has a ton of pressure on her brain. This pressure also causes seizures and vomiting. It seems to be the cycle that Lisa will have a couple good days and then go right back into having some seizures and sickness. It has been a very long journey. They try to get her out of bed and outside on the good days, but even that is a struggle.
Thanks for all your prayers it means so much to them.
