Sunday, July 4: Update

This will be short. My brother and his wife drove in from Colorado today. We’re glad they are here.

The holiday brought an opportunity to spend time with the girls away from OCH but amplified our emotional states. We watched fireworks as an incomplete family tonight. It broke our heart knowing that Claire should be here enjoying the fireworks.

We take solace knowing that Claire is a fighter. She challenges us to fight harder. Tiffany and I encouraged each other to match Claire’s feistiness for the next several months: she is working hard, we need to match her efforts. We’re very proud of her.

I plan on giving a more thorough update tomorrow. Until then Happy 4th and thank you for your support and prayers!
