Hi everybody from Markysworld !
I returned from Pittsburgh last night to find that...believe it or not...everyone here survived without me for 5 days!
Marky fared well, or so it seemed, until I asked him if he'd
had a bath or brushed his teeth while I was gone.......
Scott turned 15 while I was gone !! Who let that happen! This is the 3rd year in a row that I have not been in town for my "first born's" birthday ! My previous job had taken me away from the home regularly, and this year proved no different. I tried, again, to explain to Scott that I needed
to leave town to work to keep the roof over our head...As
usual, Scott tried to understand and accept and forgive his mother! What a great son he is ! I hope someday when he is is older and wiser, that he will look back on his early years and understand that I was working like crazy to give him a good life, not just that I was "gone all the time"!
Tonight, Our Bishop and Stake President are coming over to visit us !!!!
Aside from clearing a path for them to walk into the living room and arrange all the bean-bags "just so". I think I will really go all out and pull up all the old DUCT TAPE on the carpet and replace it with FRESH LAID DUCT TAPE !!
Nothing but high class from the Jeanes people !
Glad to be home and back on the blog !
Thanks to everyone for helping us in so many ways!

You may have noticed that there has been no post on the blog in the past several days. Lynette has been away at a special seminar in Pittsburgh preparing for her board exams and she has been very focused.

Just talked to Lynette and heard that Zoey is doing much better today. She is pretty bruised up, one eye is swollen shut from all the bruising around her head and face. They took off the head/neck brace and this morning she is walking around and responding to questions, so signs are good that there are no neurological effects from her fall. Thank you for your prayers in Zoey's behalf. Life is fragile so enjoy each day and don't forget to tell the ones you love how special they are to you!

THE WISH HAS BEEN WISHED FOR !
Last night Marky and family went to the Make-A-Wish "wonderland" !
What a great experience ! We were greated by the "wish-granters", Mary, Jodi, and Annie, at the door and the night turned magical !
They wish-granters gave us a tour of the "castle" which was so cool ! There were pictures and stories hanging on the walls of precious children and their wishes granted.
Pictures of kids in front of Disneyland, Disneyworld, Paris, Hawaii,
Secret Gardens....Everything magical.
Hanging from the ceiling were hundreds of crystal like stars...each with a special childs name on it who had received wishes !
I was overcome with emotion at the realization that my Marky fit into this category to deserve a wish !
Flashbacks of the last 4 months of hospitals, surgeries, pain, sorrow at diagnosis's unknown, IV's, needles, NG tubes, vomiting, unknown futures, and on...
These little angels with their names on the stars above..EACH ONE.. had suffered more than any one could ever imagine their child suffering...
And each one, i'm positive, faced THEIR challenge just as heroic as my Marky has.
Do they not each deserve any wish that could be pulled down from Heaven?
As the "wish-granter's" inquired of Marky what he might like to do, or where he might like to go, I imagined him popping out with grand ideas like.....Disneyland or beaches....
Then...all of the sudden...He said it....!
"I WANT AN ARMY JEEP ! "
WHAT !!!! we all said ???? Yep, you heard right..an ARMY JEEP!
The "wish-granter's" said..."No-one's ever asked for THAT before" !
But they humored him and I could see their wheels start turning in their creative heads. !
So on the way home I started to think....Hmmm how's that gonna
look in the FRONT YARD..which is where he wanted to put It !
We convinced him that it could be more fun in the BACK yard for lots of better reasons ...and he settled for that !
So there goes another lesson from Marky....No place is ever as GREAT AS YOUR OWN BACKYARD TO BE !! IN THE WHOLE WORLD OF CHOICES...HE PREFERS TO STAY HOME AND HANG OUT !.....IN A JEEP !
Maybe the Army Jeep represents to him a protection from the world...To sit in it and not let the bad guys get at you..? This is my take on it.....what about you?
Love to all

SUNDAY NIGHT AT MARKYS HOME !
Posted by Markys mom at 7:36 PM
This is Marky's Aunt Dianne and I wanted to tell everyone of the great experience we had last night at our Stake Conference. Our visiting General Authority was Elder Kenneth Johnson...the same Elder Johnson that gave Marky his wonderful blessing in January! After the meeting which by the way was the BEST Saturday night session of conference I have ever been too, we went up to him to tell him about Marky. I started out by saying, "Do you remember going to PCMC in January and...he then finished my sentence by saying "giving a blessing to Marky Jeanes?" I said Yes and was going to give him an update on how great Marky was doing when he said he reads the blog all the time. I thanked him for the wonderful blessing he gave Marky and he said "what I told Marky in his blessing came straight from our Heavenly Father." I told him Marky and his family were coming for dinner tomorrow and he said, Please give my love to Marky and his wonderful parents. He is such a great man, so obedient, so close to the spirit, such a man of God. I have NO DOUBT that the blessing he gave Marky will come to pass! It was a wonderful experience to meet this man-one that I will ever be grateful for.

Is it Friday already !
Marky's PIC line is clotted off again ! UGH !
There.....i'll just get it out there right off the bat !
The home health nurse will come out today to do her
magic on it, hopefully, and get it runnin again !
Other than that, he's had a great week. Aunt Lori is
flitting about the countryside the last few days, so Markys
been having fun with our neighbors, Jen Larsen and Cathy
Widdison while James went to school and Mom worked !
Sammy has been healthy this week too and back in his
routine of pre-school and playing at his day-care home!
Scott is counting down the days till his 15th Birthday !!!
Another UGH !!!! March 28th is the big day. He is
approaching 5'10" or taller and is so much fun to be
around..is a great help with everything...AND HE"S
The other day Marky asked me.."Mom, why doesnt Scotty
have a "life-threatening" illness? , me and Sam do !?"
Marky didnt want Scotty to feel left out, I guess !
I wanted to say stuff like...well, Heavenly Father only
gives challenges to those he knows can handle them....
and other quips that we use to soften the "blow" of disasters.
But, when I thought about Scott and what he goes thru just
watching all the "stuff" happening, WATCHING your 2 little
brothers fight for their lives many times. The emotion of
all of that is possibly just as tough as BEING
the "sufferer" !
Scott continues to get himself up at 05:15 am everyday for
early morning Seminary. He's getting good grades. Doesnt
have a police record. And still tells his Mom he loves her !
Those are "life threatening" challenges right there !! !
Something to think about....
Tomorrow we go to the Home and Garden Show at South
Towne expo ctr to be the guest celebrity. !
Will report on that tomorrow !
Love you guys !

Tuesday evening with Marky !
Marky is currently getting caught up on his ACADEMICS with
his sweet teacher LISA HODSON !
She comes to the house twice a week to teach him !
AFTER being pecked all day by the other "little chicks", Lisa extends
herself even further to "go after the one" ! She is a visiting angel
and we love her sweet approach to teaching and the genuine caring
spirit she brings into our home !
MARKY has been invited to be a celebrity guest at the Home and Garden
Show at South Towne Expo center on Saturday !!!!
There will be a Charitable Auction with proceeds to Primary Childrens
Med Ctr. done by the local floral vendors.
They want Marky to come and help rally the troups by offering his
experiences at PCMC ! I think they may have some cool posters of
him and say a little something about him too.
We get to be there around 3pm. this Sat.
So everybody come and get in on the action !
Woo Hoo !
