A Word from the Girl of the Hour!

Rockin' my spiky "do" today!

Hi everybody! It’s great to know y’all are thinking of me. I’ve got lots of cards and so many balloons, my room looks like a circus tent. We placed bets on the balloons that we think will hold up the longest, and so far I think my bet will win. : ) I’ve got lots of things to do, so don’t think I am getting bored! My esteemed nurse and sister, Ivy, is one of the best things about being home. She’s fun, she makes me laugh and she is forever by my side. We are thinking of giving out rubber LIVESTRONG-type bracelets, and we will tell y’all when we decide. Thank you for all your support and please leave a comment. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 My nurse Ivy and my balloons!


  1. Wow! You look sooooo cute with your new "do" surrounded by so many cool balloons. Here is a balloon riddle for you.
    Riddle: What did the birthday balloon say to the pin?
    Answer: Hi, Buster.
    Glad you are having a great time with nurse Ivy. Hugs and kisses to you both! Carolyn Roberts

  2. Hi Georgia,
    I am just figuring out how to "follow" you, as I'm not too good at all this social computer stuff (ask your mom and Missy about Facebook).

    Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I've been thinking of you these past few weeks (lots!)and let you know how much I love you and your wonderful family.

    You are quite the inspiration and I look forward to following this great blog you've created.

    Much love,
    Tracy, Joel, Caroline & Patterson Dew

  3. Hi Georgia!
    I love your hair--it looks great. Ivy is quite a cutie--aren't sisters the BEST! You and Ivy remind me of me and my little sister Gail. I prayed for you at my church youth group tonight. Have fun with your balloons!!! Love ya lots, Claire :D

  4. Hey Georgia!

    Just a note to let you know that we're thinking of you and that we LOVE to read your blog to know how you're doing. You are always in our thoughts and prayers. What an awesome nurse you have! And so lucky that she's related to you. :o) Can't wait to buy a bracelet in honor of you and your journey. Take care!

    Deb, John, Addie and Jack Bueide

  5. My bet is on the "I love you" heart balloon.
    I'm so proud of you for keeping up the positive attitude. It really makes a huge difference.

  6. You keep the inside and throw away the outside.
    Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What am I?????


  7. Georgia, we are so proud of your smiling face greeting the caregivers. You are a precious girl and destined for great things. I hope you can cure old age, as I plan to be a patient of yours one of these days. Carson wants to send a message. I hope they figure this out. Keep up the happy attitude, and you will soon be back l00%. love, Beverly

  8. Hi Georgia! Hope you have a great day. We love you! You look a lot like your Mommy in the second picture. Tell everyone hi for us.

  9. To a beautiful,precious girl who looks like her beautiful Mother. It looks like things are going good to win the battle against leukemia. You come from a line of winners and you are a winner. You go girl! I hope I am doing this right and it gets to you.
    We will think of you everyday,
    Betty and Dan Scarborough

  10. Georgia-

    We have the LEII class photo from last year hanging on the wall in Ben's room. In the photo you are in the middle, shining with a sunbeam on your face and a spectacular smile. When we pass the photo we smile back at you. We are proud to know you. Thank you for this blog so that we can hold your hand in this small way along your journey.

    Cancer is one of the chapters in the book of my life too. I hope it will be a short chapter for you. Life is even more beautiful in the rest of the book! :)

  11. Georgia,

    As you know, your mommy and I were best friends when we were your age... and we were the biggest chickens. I'm so proud of how brave and strong you are! The Golders are thinking of you every day.

    Remember to tell your mommy that Helio Lives. Talk to you all soon. :)

    Love, Missy

  12. Hi Georgia,

    This is Catie and Sarah English from Wisconsin. I don't know if you remember us but we were in Uncle Jeff and Aunt Meg's wedding together five years ago when you were the flower girl. We wanted to let you know that we are thinking about you and praying for you! Good luck with everything :)

    Love, Catie and Sarah

  13. Georgia:

    The very moment I saw your hair, I thought of Audrey Hepburn. So chic. So lovely!

  14. More Audrey tips!

  15. Hi Georgia,
    I am one of your mom's friends from high school. I am amazed at how much you look like her! You are beautiful. Your sister is a cutie too! I am praying for you to get well very soon. I know you will. You seem like a very strong girl. Stay strong and keep the faith.

  16. Georgia - I hope you are having a good day today! I love the spiky hair and I hope that I can come see it soon. Claire and Vivi send their love!!

    Love, Aunt Kate

  17. Hi Georgia,

    Your Aunt Meg told us about her sweet niece. We are sending lots of love from Texas. Hope you are feeling better everyday!

  18. Hi Georgia!
    My name is Edie and I've been a friend of your Lolly's for 40 plus years and I have known your Mom since she was a baby. I have some funny stories to tell you about Lolly that I will share with you that are guaranteed to make you laugh! I'll send you a card with some of the funnier stories.
    I have been reading your blog and I have to tell you that you are such a brave little girl! With your fighting spirit and winning attitude you will "knock out" this cancer thing!
    I think you look alot like your Mom...very pretty! Your Mom was such a perfect child..she always would sit perfectly still on Lolly's lap whereever we would go (mainly basketball games) while my son Steve was running all around the gym! We had alot of fun
    raising our children!
    I also want to tell you that I think your hair looks very cute! Very stylish!
    I hope to get to know you better and in fact let's plan on it! Meanwhile you keep being the brave little girl that you are!
    Lots of love to you!

  19. Hi Georgia! You are an inspiration! We think you're AWESOME! Hope you like the jokes and riddles Johnny and Dylan have been sending you. They're in school now but they asked me to send you this one today:

    What is full of holes but can hold water?

    A sponge.

  20. Georgia,
    We LOVE the blog you and your mom have created! It is so great to see you and keep up with you this way! It has been a really long time since I have seen you in person, but we have been thinking alot about you lately. Please know we are routin' for you ALL the way! We would love a bracelet to fight through this journey with you!
    Allison, Joel & Gentry

  21. Georgia,
    You don't know me, but I've listened to your Dad brag about you a lot so I feel like I know you a little. My name is Victor, and I used to work with your Dad. Anyway, tell your Dad "hey!" for me. And know that a bald old guy is anxious to meet you!


  22. Hi Georgia,

    We haven't met before, but your Aunt Kate is a lifelong friend of mine and she shared your VERY cool blogspot with me. She has told me lots about you and your sister over the years, about what a wonderful big cousin you are to Claire and Vivi, and how much they look up to you. Well I can certainly see why!

    My 6 yr old son wanted you to know that he thinks your haircut is REALLY cool and he wishes he could get his to spike like that! He is also jealous that you got to meet the Lady Longhorns. Wow!!

    We are sending you LOTS of love from Lawrence, Kansas, and some snow, too, if you care for any!

  23. Georgia,

    I love your hair cut. You look so cute and
    brave. I love your blog and look forward to
    reading it every day. I am thinking of you
    every day and I know it won't be long until you
    will be back at Claire and Vivi's house having
    Your friends Jim and Betty Bowie

  24. Good Morning, Georgia,

    That's so many balloons, I think they engulfed your sweet nurse! I can see your beautiful face, and Ivy's, too, but then just the sea of balloons...(:
    I'm sending you and Ivy each a special surprise, and my class is putting together a little book/card for you. We love you and send you our good thoughts every day.
    More later.... Camille

  25. Hi Georgia,
    Your hair is too too cute!
    I was so happy to hear the news of your good test results this week. You are kicking this ALL's you know.
