HI EVERYONE !
GLAD ITS FRIDAY?
I'M GLAD ITS FRIDAY AND MARKY IS HOME...STILL !
HE CONTINUES TO BE A MIRACLE CHILD. EVER CHEERFUL.
HE MISSES HIS FRIENDS, HE MISSES HIS OLD CHEEKS, AND
DOES NOT LIKE ANYONE TO MAKE FUN OF HIS CHUBBY CHEEKS!
HE MISSES SCHOOL TOO. HE WANTS TO DRIVE BY THE
SCHOOL ALL THE TIME HOPING TO GET A GLIMPSE OF HIS
FRIENDS OUTSIDE PLAYING ON THE FIELD !
HE IS TIRED OF BEING SEQUESTERED AND CONFINED TO US !
BUT AN INFECTION OF ANYKIND COULD LAND US BACK IN
THE SLAMMER....I MEAN PRIMARY'S !
ALTHOUGH, HE'S BEEN OUTSIDE ON GOOD DAYS PLAYING
WITH HIS BUD, JONAH....HIS PIC LINES ON HIS ARM BLOWING
IN THE WIND !
THIS MAKES ME CRINGE AT THE THOUGHT OF THEM GETTING
CAUGHT ON ANYTHING OR CRUD INTRODUCED INTO THEM !
YET, ITS GREAT TO SEE HIM ENJOYING EACH MOMENT!
I'M GOING TO TRY TO "ENJOY EACH MOMENT" TOO ! IT'S
HARD ISNT IT?
MOST EVERY MOMENT IN MY HEAD IS FILLED WITH....
MEDICAL BILLS, MORTGAGE PAYMENTS, UTILITY BILLS,
FOOD BILLS, (GLUTEN FREE STUFF IS OUTRAGEOUSLY
PRICED), PASSING HUGE BOARD EXAMS, WORRYING
ABOUT THE NEXT ILLNESS, AND WHO IT WILL BE THIS
I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE SIMILAR "CRUD" ON YOUR
PLATES. BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE MARKY'S APPROACH
A TRY AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
IF YOU NEED A REMINDER ON HOW TO DO JUST ABOUT
ANYTHING....RE-VISIT MARKYS "OLDER POSTS" ON THIS
BLOG AND RE-READ ANY OF THEM ! WOW, HE IS AWESOME!

Is it wednesday already ?
I've just been reading the Make A Wish Foundation of Utah's
Blog spot. My first time looking.
What an inspirational experience. You guys have to check it
out. I'll leave the blog address when I'm done here.
It reeled me around and brought me to where our brains and
hearts SHOULD be. Not where they usually are....thinking
of just ourselves and our own problems.
We think we have it SO bad in SO many ways, but we dont even
come close to some challenges that others face and OVERCOME !
A little boy is featured on their blog that was born with many
problems like hydrocephaly and lives on a ventilator. He was
born with only one eye. And was not expected to live very long.
His family celebrated his Birthday each WEEK!...instead of each
YEAR. His eye is permantly shut. And his family calls it a WINK!
He is now 4 years old! Never utters a word, just winks and smiles.
but speaks volumes through his spirit.
I am resolved to be a better person, to seek out those in need
who aren't in my own little tiny "box"d up world.
Think about it.... Love Lynette

Made it to Monday !
Marky had a great day with Aunt Lori as his custodian today!
She manages to get him to take all his pills, do his homework,
read his books, limit x-box time, and still retains his fondness !
As a Mom, those things occasionally fall in line, but usually
its not "fondness" that is retained, is it? Only the Aunt Lori
could pull it off !
Sammy had a surprise gift of delight at the end of his day....
hepatitis A immunization shot schedule. He experienced the
usual trepidations accompanied with entrance into the lobby
of the doc's office. Mostly trying to get me to put his coat
back on...signifying that we SHOULD LEAVE...AND NOW !
The delightful realization that his shots WERE up to date
and he was able to exit the office WITHOUT any purple heart
or "Oscar" winning display of emotional outburst was more
than we couldve hoped for !
So, today......I hope all of you were blessed with some similar
sort of "gift" !
If you dont think you were.......you better search again....
.......you were blessed, you just may need to search with a
little more effort !
As always, I'm grateful for the gift of your friendship and love.

Hi to all of Markysbuddy's
Hope you all are enjoying a Saturday "without incident" !
Im afraid to even speak it out loud, that Marky's had a
GREAT couple of days !----aside from the usual vomiting,
intense itching from drug side-effects, IV feeding, and the
constant paranoia of possible relapse or infection -!
If you dont think about those things, he's doing FANTASTIC !
I even got up early and left the house to get some physical
exercise this morning ! As if I were a normal person with a
normal life! Oh, I can pretend, can't I ! :)
Also spent the afternoon trying to study to re-re-take my
Ultrasound Vascular Board exam ! Dont ask the details behind the
re-re-take thing....it gives ME intense itching/hives !
But, I DO have some advice for others.....Don't take a Board
Exam the morning after you've been up ALL night at a hospital
with a critically ill child.. that's all i'll say about that !
Except that Board exams are EXPENSIVE..$200.00 a whack !
No discount for the more times you attempt to pass them, either!
I've become old friends with the proctor at the testing center, too.
Thats NOT a good thing....
So, as usual, its all about me! BUT....there would be NO ME..
without all of you to prop me up and tell me to keep going, to
leave large volumes of Diet Coke and even larger continent sized
chocolate chocolate bars at "just when i needed it most" moments.
You offer words of hope and encouragement, silent and uttered
prayers, home-cooked dinners, laundry service, house cleaning
dog walking, auction bidding, buddy walking, yellow ribbons,
crowd cheering, gluten free advising, and so much more !
So, to all of you, thank you for caring about US and reaching out
of your OWN busy lives to help us.
I look forward to someday being able to pay you "forward"
with good works to others in need.
Love you all, Lynette

Happy Friday from Marksworld!
Mark managed to sail through the IV therapy
of Remicade up at PCMC without incident !
It took about 4 hours to infuse the good stuff.
The nurses also were able to "un-clog" one of
his PIC lines that had clotted off. So he is back
to 2 open lines in the PIC.
Ideally the way a "double lumen" PIC line works
is you can be infusing thru one line with meds or
TPN, and draw blood out of the other one at the same
time . Brilliant !
Marky's still taking all the steroids for a while longer.
His cheeks look like they could be holding several
water balloons in each side !
He remains cheerful and grateful to be home in his
menagerie of BEAN BAGS and creme soda !
His school teacher, Lisa Hodson, continues to visit him
2wice a week for home study ! She is a gift !
Thanks again to everyone for your support and love,

WEDNESDAY FEB. 17.
TODAY MARKY GOES TO PRIMARY'S TO
GET A SPECIAL INFUSION OF REMICADE.
THIS IS A DRUG THAT WILL HOPEFULLY
HELP KILL OFF THE SPINDLE CELL GUNK
AROUND HIS ORGANS.
THEY GAVE IT TO HIM WHILE HE WAS AN
INMATE, AND THEN BACKED OFF DUE TO
SIDE EFFECTS ON THE LIVER OR SOMETHING.
AND, NOW THEY WILL START UP AGAIN.
IT TAKES A COUPLE OF HRS TO GET IT ALL
IN HIS VEINS. SO JAMES WILL BE THE
ENTERTAINMENT WHILE HE LAYS THERE AND
GETS THE GOOD JUICE !
HAPPY WEDNESDAY ! LOVE NETTI

Echo-ing the Colonel's thanks to all of you for
your help with Marky!
God Bless all of Markys "Buddys" !
p.s....Marky puked up all of your Salt City
Burger "idea" around 10:00 last night, KEN !
note to caregivers: NO STIR-FRY AND, NOW...
NO SALT CITY BURGERS !
signed: MAMMA BEAR ! ARGHHHH

If not for the many who have contributed to the auction there could be no funds for the many expenses that have continued to build geometrically and yet, there are the ones who come through. To all may I express great gratitude. God bless you all.

HAPPY PRESIDENTS DAY FROM MARKY--
MARKY'S EXCITED THAT THERE'S "NO SCHOOL"

DOESNT FEEL SO BAD FOR MISSING OUT ON ALL
HE JUST WANTS HIS LIFE BACK !
IM JUST GLAD HE HAS HIS LIFE! WHATEVER FORM
ITS IN ! HE'S A GIFT! ----NETTI

Marky came home again last night!
AND....Sammy has STREP !
Most of the issues of concern about Marky
up to the meds he's on.
His liver biopsy showed "scar tissue" which
is probly the sclerosis spindle cell stuff. But
no infection or Malignancy. Thank you !
We have sequestered Marky into his room
with the door shut, mask on, to keep the
Strep germs away....As if!
Never a dull moment over here at the
"house of chaos" !
I KNOW you guys are having a better
day than this! count yer blessings!

As it stands, Mark will have a liver biopsy @ 13:00 hrs and then will be observed for 2-3 hrs. Pending favorable results, he will bust outa here by 17:00 and come home.
Posted by kennethcrocheron at 12:20 PM
Wednesday 0845 am--
TODAY MARKY ENDURES FASTING
AGAIN PRIOR TO A LIVER BIOPSY
THAT WILL HOPEFULLY HAPPEN
THIS MORNING SOMETIME.
HIS HEADACHE RETURNED LAST
NIGHT AS WELL AS VOMITING AGAIN.
HIS BACK IS STILL QUITE SORE FROM
THE LUMBAR PUNCTURE.
TODAY HIS RT SIDE OF HIS ABDOMEN
WILL FEEL LIKE HE GOT KICKED BY A
HORSE, TOO, AFTER THE LIVER BIOPSY!
HE'S A TUFF SOLDIER, THOUGH AND
HIS MOM ON THE OTHER HAND, IS
A NERVOUS WRECK! VIOLENTLY
SEARCHING FOR CHOCOLATE AND
DIETCOKE TO SOOTHE THE ........
CANT THINK OF A GOOD ENOUGH
DESCRIPTION FOR THIS PREDICAMENT!

BRAVELY, OUR LITTLE MARKY
FACES ANOTHER TOUR OF DUTY
WITH CHIN HELD HIGH, HE WENT
INTO THE O.R. FOR HIS LUMBAR
PUNCTURE. SO BRAVE! NOT A TEAR
SHED...BY HIM, THAT IS.
EARLY RESULTS SAY THE SPINAL FLUID
DOESNT APPEAR TO HAVE INFECTION IN
IT. THE DOCS WILL TRY TO RULE OUT
ENCROACHMENT ON HIS SPINAL CANAL DUE
TO THE SPINDLE CELL FIBROTIC
AS USUAL, ANOTHER TEST OF FAITH IS
UNDERWAY! THE ROOM FULL OF BEAN
BAGS WILL HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE PRINCE
OF PRIMARY TO RETURN HOME ONCE AGAIN!
AGAIN, WE LOOK UPWARD FOR ANSWERS AND
STRENGTH......... LOVE, lynette

Sat. Nite from Markysmom--
Marky continues to hang in! He ventured out to get a haircut
today at 9 to 9 barbershop with James and his bud, Jonah.
He's been pretty nauseaous the last two days, so today we tried
to limit the amount of Gluten free Spaghetti he's been eating,
Since he's been pretty much eating it 2-3 times a day !
So far, its seemed to help.
His Uncle Alan (the helicopter pilot from the auction) and Aunt Dianne
came for Dinner last night and ate a Gluten free dinner w/ us and watched
the "Buddy Run" DVD from the school ! That was great!
Today Cathy Wallace and her Dear mother, Carol, came all the way from
Cedar City to see the Modern Day Miracle Marky ! We talked them into
watching the "Buddy Run" DVD too! ! It's our top-o-the list Blockbuster
Getting ready to hook up the little prince to his TPN feeding.
Love to all, Lynette

HEY EVERYBODY ! MARKY'S IN THE SL TRIBUNE NEWSPAPER TODAY!!!!
Posted by Markys mom at 8:11 AM
Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Wednesdays w/ Marky,
Today Marky was entertained by Aunt Diane, aka "Duke" while marksmom worked. Or, more likely, Duke was entertained by Marky!
BUT THE MOST EXCITING NEWS OF THE DAY WAS . . . . Duke used
her handy dandy portable ultrasound machine to look around in
Marky's belly for leftover .. .weird stuff, like Ascites (fluid floating
around his organs) or dilated kidneys etc. AND THERE WAS NO
ASCITES TO BE FOUND!!!! NO DILATED KIDNEYS EITHER!! NOT
EVEN A HINT OF ANYTHING WEIRD!!!! ! ! ! ! !
An ABSOLUTE miracle! Just 3.5 wks ago, Marky was STILL suffering,
untreated, unable to barely walk, massive ascites, constant vomiting!
AN INDISPUTABLE MODERN DAY MIRACLE!
Now we hope and pray that whatever this unknown disease is, stays in
"remission". And pray that someone, someday will figure out just what
he does have!
Marky visits his old stomping ground at Primary's tomorrow for a check
up with the Doc's. Will report on that afterwards.

Monday Evening w/ Marky----AT HOME!
Tonight, Marky had gluten free spaghetti! ! !
Sammy seemed equally interested, so a heaping scoop was
offered to him and he woofed it down and asked for more!
Marky also MAY have also had a corn shelled Taco from Del Taco,
we cant confirm or deny that because Dr. Dan Stampfl didnt seem
the least bit impressed by that....and he was down right insistant
that we not try that again! Apparently the sodium content in that
highly nutritious fast food may or may not raise Markys already
rising blood pressure! ! ! Soooorrrrry....Didnt thinka that!
At least he didnt throw up any of the afore mentioned forbidden
"No No's" !
Aunt Lori took Marky shopping to spend his $100 bucks today!
He had the "Ben Franklin" in a tight grasp as we browsed the rows
full of opportunity!
He purchased the entire aisle of military weaponry at Toys- Fer- Us!
Thank you---again to Lori's kind neighbors for that experience.
Thanks Also, for all the Bidding wars going on in Marky's Auction!
You guys better check it out....More stuff goes up all the time! Have fun!
Posted by Markys mom at 7:10 PM
More about Monday,...
Did you guys know that the Diagnosis of Idiopathic Sclerosing Mesenteritis isnt even HIS DIAGNOSIS?!?!? It's just the closest thing to what he has. But his lab work still doesnt match the diagnosis of ISM.
I asked the Docs that very question the day we left the hosp!!!
In other words he is still a mystery! The docs, as you know a few weeks ago, decided to try the Steroids and Chemo stuff to see if it would help, and it did...for now.
So we wait and see!
He goes to his pediatrician today for an over-all assesment. Then Thursday afternoon he goes back up to Primary's to see the two teams that finally claimed him.....The GI team, and the Rheumatology team.
Posted by Markys mom at 6:52 AM
Monday morning from MarksHOME!
Did you guys look carefully at the photo straight under this note?
Brock Dansie (our special-special needs friend) is, of course, oversee-ing the event,
Mark is, of course, going straight for Sammy (our special-special needs son), and one of the princesses of Stonepark circle (Alivia Larsen) is gathering them all
Beautiful and touching. Thanks Ken Crocheron for capturing the moment.
Marky has spent the majority of his first days home moving from Bean bag to bean bag. Nesting on each one! I think he feels like I would if I were in a sea of chocolate with a dietcoke in my hand!
The PIC line infusions of TPN (total parenteral nutrition) are going well. The home health Nurse, Shonelle, came last night and drew some blood to check on all of his chemistry's.
James took him for a drive yesterday and they walked a little bit thru Wal-Mart. One of Lori's neighbors gave Mark $100 to spend any way he wanted to, when he got outa the hosp.! So he is window shopping for ideas!
He deserves a GAZILLION bucks to spend for what he endured for 56 days! I think, to him, $100 is equal to a gazillion!
Go Marky! Love Netti

Favorite Thoughts on Hope
He conquers who endures.
Nothing says I Love You like a clean toilet to throw up in!
The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.
~Author unknown, in reference to Ecclesiastes 9:11
Don't be discouraged. It's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.
Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
