Thank you to CCS students

Hey kids, I miss not being able to drop in and give you hugs and pats on the head, especially John John.

I love the book of prayers and promises you made for me. Your artwork and Scripture verses were a beautiful gift. I've been looking at them every day.

I know I will see you soon at school and give each one of you a hug. Don't worry, I'm already thinking about Field Day here in the hospital.

You're so precious to me, thank you for loving on the Snodgrass boys and praying for our family.

I Love You All,

Mrs. Snodgrass

Hi Kate...We both should probably be in bed...but sometimes the best time to get anything done is when everyone else is asleep, huh? Well...You sure have been on my mind and heart and in my prayers daily. I, like Dave, have become addicted to your blog, checking in on you to see how things are going. I am so encouraged to be reading posts from you!!! What an answer to prayer...among so many others.

I saw the boys hopping into Shell's car today after school...They were so excited to be with the Roloff boys, I could tell.

Mary told me about what the students did for you and began asking lots of questions about why they had to go into your brain. =) It was sweet...I think she was genuinely concerned. It's amazing how young our children care about others.

Thanks for your updates and for sharing yourself through all of this. Oh...I forgot to tell you that I went to Dr. Scarlet (I'll tell ya about that later)...anyways, I told her what you were going through (I saw her the morning before your surgery)...She teared up and went on to her student about what a neat person you her ideas for her kids birthday parties, etc. =) I told her about your blog and she said she would get in touch with you. I remembered to tell you that because I'm just thinking about what a testimony you and Dave are through all of this.

Hang in there, my friend. You are a blessing.
Good night...
Love, Julie

I wanted you to know that our family has been praying for you and your family. Michael remembers Miss Kate and Carter. Carter must take after you with his contagious joy and laughter...whenever I pray for you I remember what a GREAT mother you are...I do think you are the best!!! Thank you for your blog...I check it many times during the day so I know how to pray for you.

Feeling a little weary from the week I was refreshed last night by the likes of one Laura Joback and her St. Louis Bread Company bag of ticks. Laura, a bridesmaid of Kates 10 years ago and doctor of doggies and kitties in the area set about to entertain Marsha Potts and myself with her peticure and manicure skills on Kate. Kate being a little fuzzy at times would drift.She would tell us not to talk fast since she can't process fast conversation. Not a problem for Laura. She was determined to gussy the girl up. I must say the new nail job along with the staples in her head might just set a new trend. And it is all due to that Vet extradinair. I'll take my pooch to you anytime Laura.
Kate's mom is so very appreciative of all the women who are going above and beyond the call of duty to help Aunt Dee Dee (better known as Jeannie) and myself on the home front. You are great! It makes me feel young again just watching you all.
Couldn't sleep from 4 am on so quiet time with The Lord is good before we face this day. I look forward to Kate returning home. We will have our challenges with the two year old trying to love on his mom. He is a snuggler. But we will do our best.
P.S. to the Clementine Caper: We all enjoyed getting our vitamin C last night. The nurse on 3 east looked a little confused when she walked in with a wooden case of Clementines. I don't think anyone has ever delivered the likes of that to neo post surgery. All in the room stared to laugh. What does Proverbs say? Laughter is good for the bones.
I gave Aunt Dee Dee the night off and today also. So I must have my strong cup of coffee to get ready for 3 very busy boys. What's the old western saying? I'm back in the saddle again.

what does aunt dee dee do on her "day off"? she calls grandma at 6 am to make sure cole practices his spelling words one last time before school. he tends to spell "point" without a "n" and "proud" without a "r". she also reminds grandma that the boys need to find their zipper-less swimming trunks for the pool party tonight.

another thing that i learned the hard way: do as many things as possible the night before, that way you're not rushing around in the morning. thankfully, grandma has them during the morning rush, while i have the evening.

Dear Dave and Kate,
Do you remember Michelle Roloff's mom and dad? We are in Nepal, and we want you to know that we are desperately praying for all of you. Tomorrow is our church service here in Kathmandu, and we are asking prayer for you from all our people at the church. Your blog was such a blessing to read, as we can tell that God is sustaining you and Dave and your boys. Our prayers will continue to go up to our God on your behalf until the day we see you well. David said to give you his favorite verse. It is Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good; a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in Him. Also Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. vs. 4 Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. God Keep you all in the palm of his hand.

To Dave and his Frankenbride...I only call you that, Kate, b/c I know you well enough that it will make you laugh and not be sad!!! :) And I reference Frankenstein ONLY b/c of the staple thing you have going on... there's no odd posture of the arms and shoulders, no stiff-legged ambulation, no green skin...well, I take that back...the eye may get a little green in the days to come, but, oh well: you outshine the real Frankenstein in the looks department ANY day--even, no, ESPECIALLY, now! Thinking of you this morning and trying to cope with my new-found obscessive-compulsive disorder of checking this blog every other minute. I SO SO SO SO do not have time to do this on a school morning for Isaac, but, alas, I am a hopeless addict, and I must peek. "Hi. My name is Laura. And I'm a BLOGAHOLIC." I'll be praying this AM for Dr. Forget's visit with you. Hugs to you, Dave, and Mrs. Meyer!! Laura and Clan

Good Morning Kate and Dave,
This is my report from the Snodgrass fortress. Joey called revelrie this morning for your troops and all chaos broke loose. The boys played about a days worth of energy off in about 30 minutes of intense playtime prior to school. The New Madrid Fault had nothing in released energy compared to the energy and noise coming from the boys' playtime in the basement. At one point I had all of them dogpiled on top of me on the air mattress.
We hoping you had a good nights sleep and a good days rest. I'll check on you in a little while.

Love You Sis,
