R.I.P. Rachel Ebeler

I was going to update you on everyone, but my heart is heavy right now. I woke up this morning to some awful news. A 16 year old girl with CF that I have been following on CaringBridge(a site kinda like a blog) for awhile now, passed away. SHE was the one who would right on her site. She was so sweet and never complained. She always apologized for not updating sooner and always said how much she loved everyones comments.

She will truly be missed;( WE LOVE YOU RACHEL!! I will definitely miss reading your beautiful words!
Please say a prayer for Rachel's family. This came on kinda sudden. She lost an older sister Becki to CF I think, and has a younger brother Brodi who has CF, so I can only imagine what's going through his mind.
Thanks for your prayers,
PS. I'll update tomorrow on Lil' Chris and Nathan.

Sorry about Rachel. I will be praying for her family, as well as you too! I know this is a hard process to go through, and it doesn't seem like it gets any easier. It is something that comes with CF (not having CF, but seeing others go through it and sometimes encountering severe lung damage, infections, etc...whatever the case may be,that they can't recover from). We bond so much that when this happens, we are losing a best friend it seems like. I've lost several CF friends this past year or so...and it is very difficult. It's scary too...for a CF patient or family member/friend to see that happen. Hang in there!

I'm finally catching up on blog reading.....I read your posts about Nathan. He and his family will also be in my prayers. I will continue to pray as they go through these chemo treatments over the next several years. Although a parent never wants to hear that diagnosis, or any other diagnosis for that matter, I know this special bond will grow and you two will be able to be there for each other during the hard times!!

Ok...so lastly...I gave you a blog award on my blog (this past Sunday)...Blog with Substance Award. I think you will like it...so check it out and pass it along if you have time.

I can't believe how much lil Chris is growing up. I haven't had time to read any of my blogs....and i was shocked at the pictures of him....such a huge change. He is such a handsome young little boy :) Hope all is going well!
