Saturday morning in Markysroom----

Marky managed to survive the night with his Uncle Lyle at the helm!!!!

That's the good news of the day.!!!

Huge heaps of gratitude to his uncle for giving selflessly to this dear child. Marky is resting comfortably with the help of various combinations of meds on board!--- Not that he needed to be sedated after a wild night with Lyle!!!

The Colonel, Ken Crocheron, is also never far away to help comfort little Marky in his time of trial. We appreciate SO MUCH all the efforts to assist in the care of Marky and our family from everyone near AND far.

Donations of every kind are pouring in to help offset the many needs. I am in awe of the generosity of you all. THANK YOU THANK YOU ....a Gazillion!

Sammy spent Christmas day opening his Santa gifts at Aunt Lori's house first, then he spread his Christmas cheer with the Bishop Rupp family (hope the house is still standing!)....Sammy IS an angel-----the "Destroying Angel" at times! Then he moved along to the Crocheron's for a time and finally home for the night with his daddy.

Scott spent Christmas eve and morning with his Cole relatives and then presented himself back up at Marks bedside along with lots of friends and family. Marky seemed to perk up especially when his best buddy, Jonah Larsen, came to see him!

Many of you have taken the time to travel up to visit Marky. That in itself is a sacrifice with time and traffic, etc. But we are grateful for all your contributions, be it kind words, texts, blogs, and numerous temporal assists!

Gratefully, Lynette and family

Hi Lynette, James, Scott, Marky and Sam,

Glad to hear of your 'Merry Christmas happenings'!

I'm not sure who wrote this, but it made me think of all of you:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow--You may succeed with another blow, Success is failure turned inside out--The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Our love and prayers are with you.

Still thinking of you all! It sounds like Marky had a wonderful Christmas Day! Scott and Sammy too. That is wonderful. Chad said he saw you briefly and was able to talk to you and James. We love you all and appreciate you sharing these precious moments with us through the blog! Scott called us this morning and said he wasn't feeling well. We hope it okay and not down with a cold or flu! We love and miss you all!

Hi Lynette, James and Family. Our prayers are with you and Mark. Please know of our love for you and what you are having to go through. We would love to come visit, but each of us have had the gomboo at some point over the last 2 weeks. Know that we are thinking of you and praying for you.
Scott, Jenie and Family.
