A New Year for Maggie and our family

Maggie continues to make wonderful progress with no sign of any seizures since returning home from St. Louis. She continues to struggle with over-stimulation and busyness, which requires our family to keep our outside activities to a minimum. Dax, Anna Kathryn, and Zoe are really enjoying the settled-ness that has come upon our family.

On January 4, 2006, an event signifying just how well Maggie is doing will occur – the port in Maggie’s chest, that she used to get chemotherapy through, will be removed. This will be a tremendous boost in Maggie’s confidence and general well being, and it will serve as a significant turning point for our entire family.

We are looking forward to what God will do through our family in 2006. I pray that we and you will remain faithful in honoring Him – in pain, suffering, and celebration.

As we move into this new “movement”, I’d like to share this poem with you. I wrote this as a Christmas present for Kathi. I pray that your dance to God’s music is a graceful one.

From the dawn of our love,
We have held each other
And danced to the music
That God has played for us.

We flowed together
Through moving ballads.

We held each other tightly
Through painful laments.

I dipped you to the floor
And let the world see your grace.

We gazed into each others eyes
And let the music do the whispering.

We moved with excitement,
As God once again changed the tempo

Until dusk comes upon us,
We will hold each other;
Then we will dance together again
To the music that God plays for us.

In Him who is and will always remain Good,

Rob Bushway

That's great, Rob. There was never a doubt in my mind. Tell Maggie I said hi and that I hope she had a great Christmas and is looking forward to a seizure-free 2006!
Barb and I wish Maggie and the rest of your family the best. All of our thoughts and prayers continue to send support for health and happiness in 2006 and beyond.
