Thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive!

Dear Mattie Blog Readers,

It means a great deal to us that you take the time to write to us and to share your thoughts, feelings, and reflections on Mattie's battle and death. Your messages are very meaningful to us and help support us through very challenging times. To you we are forever grateful. As my readers know, I promised to write the blog for a year after Mattie's death, which would mean that I could technically stop writing on September 9, 2010. However, at the moment, I feel like our journey with grief still needs to be processed and fortunately I have a willing support network still committed to reading. Therefore, the blog continues on. If I should find the need to stop writing, I assure you I will give you advanced notice. In the mean time, thank you for reading, thank you for having the courage to share this journey with us, and most importantly thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive.

As Mattie would say, Ooga Booga (meaning, I LOVE YOU)! Vicki and Peter

Tonight's picture was taken in May of 2009. With Mattie is Tricia, Mattie's favorite HEM/ONC nurse. Tricia was not only a competent nurse but a true advocate and caregiver for my whole family. She made the unbearable more tolerable and every year Tricia comes to our walk. She hasn't missed an event yet! Which means a great deal to all of us.

We are coming down to the line.... the walk is on Sunday! The pace that we are working at to get this Walk accomplished is bordering on frenetic! You wouldn't think there would be much to do, since this is our seventh annual walk. But the logistics for this are huge and adding on a corn hole tournament on top of the walk is beyond challenging!!! Peter is still working on the corn hole boards as I type!

Given that I am not feeling well too, I am not writing much. But I am happy to report that the Walk plans and fundraising are progressing along and we are very grateful to our supporters!
