Well, Sean is feeling better. Ian is doing okay but Jake is still fighting a yucky tummy. But boy, he just keeps smiling. He is something else. Not that I needed more reason to thank God every day for my boys but I have another one. A little over a month ago Adam & Carmel sent me a link about a little boy in Sacramento with congenital acute myeloid leukemia (AML)and his families struggle to find a match for a bone marrow donor. I've been following his story through his parents blog and website

Little Trevor lost his fight with leukemia on April 25, 2007. He was only six months old. I look at Jake especially, being so young, and I just can't imagine the struggles that this family has gone through. I have decided that I am going to run in memory of Trevor. I am going to try to reach out to his family and ask them if it is okay with them. Especially if I can put his links on my TNT site.

So I ran tonight. 3 miles in 45:22...It got hard at the end but I'm still really happy about it! Tomorrow off and Saturday I think I have 4-6.....good Lord. I can do this for me, my kids and a little boy that I never knew

GOOD GIRL! I ran 3 with you today, so I guess I will run 4-6 on Saturday too :-) What a sad story about little Trevor. I thank God for my healthy little ones too. We are so blessed!
