Tuesday for Tuesday

So much has changed since last I gave an update. So many wonderful things have happened. First of all, Miss Tuesday is off the ventilator! She is breathing on her own and her O2 stats are great. She is slowly becoming more and more alert as they can wean her off the drugs and Mommy even caught a smile on camera (which is up to them to share if and when they feel ready).  She has even been able to spend some time sitting (with help) next her sister. Yesterday she ate some applesauce! Her first meal in weeks. And she is growing stronger by the day. She is even officially discharged from the PICU and will be going back up to oncology as soon as a room opens up.  She made it through her second round of chemo with a little less hair but so much more strength than before. This child is a miracle. And God has answered our prayers thus far. So the message is, keep praying! Please keep praying. All these prayers are helping Tuesday and her family in so many ways. She still has an incredibly long road ahead of her but it is so good to hear things are heading in the right direction.


The fundraising continues. This particular fundraiser should appeal to everyone.  An 18×24, ready to hang canvas One Face Portrait done of anyone you choose! Hand painted by Jeremy Anderson. He is a very talented artist. Check out some of his work.

The Corradetti Brothers, who's mother helped make this happen. Denise is a friend of the artist (and a woman I am proud to call my friend as well) and together they are making this happen. He is so incredibly generous to donate his time and talents to helping Tuesday's family. I know I would love to win this one. I would have to talk him into doing both of my kids of course. Who wouldn't want a hand painted portrait of their loved one? You know you would. And you know you have at least $5.00 hanging around somewhere that you were probably going to spend on crap you shouldn't be eating so instead take that $5.00, save your waistline, and donate it to a very worthy cause. All you have to do is click on the donate button to the right of my blog. The one with Tuesday's beautiful face above it. For every $5.00 you donate, you get an entry. Donate $25? That's 5 entries! If you blog about this auction, you get another entry on top of that! And think about all the other people you will be telling about Tuesday!

Thank you everyone! Keep that love and support coming. It means the world to Tuesday's family.

Wonderful post Shar. Sitting here with a smile on my face that just won't go away. I am just so proud of Miss Tuesday for fighting such a brave fight.
