Billy Elliot

It has become a running joke now that my family has bought season tickets this year for Broadway musicals in Seattle and we have not been able to see any of them! I've either been sick or in the hospital or my parents have been sick. We have given all of our tickets away to friends and family, so now we have jokingly become patrons of the arts. My aunt especially liked the dancing men in loincloths from Hair.

Yesterday was a different story though. I was finally able to go see a show...Billy Elliot. Keep in mind that, of course, my parents were sick. They gave their tickets to my cousin and her son. It was a really great show. It takes place in Northern England and has some very expressive adult language. Being a typical nine-year-old boy, my little cousin picked up on every word that was said. So not only did he expand his vocabulary, but he can now say it with a British accent! Can't wait for his teacher to hear that! Did I mention he goes to a Catholic school?

The other good thing was that yesterday I finally was able to go without a hat! I have enough hair now that I don't need one. It feels so nice not to have to worry about that anymore!

I have a big week ahead. I have an infusion on Thursday and then get admitted on Friday for chemo. I also have a full spine and brain MRI Friday afternoon. I'm not sure when I get the results, but would appreciate prayers for that. Thank you!


  1. Hi Tiff (as your dad would say),
    Your dad give me the link to your blog today, & I'm so glad you are doing this for those of us that don't connect w/ your regularly. I quiz your dad periodically, but hate to bug him, knowing your family is likely inundated w/ questions.

    So glad to hear that the cancer cells in the spinal fluid seem to be dying. We'll pray that this continues w/ the ongoing treatments.

    The elders at BF ask about you and we pray for you & your family. I so much appreciate that you're walking this path w/ the understand that God is in control and that He is good!

    It's a little strange that reading your blog provides us readers w/ smiles & encouragement! You're amazing! We will continue to pray for you.

  2. Awesome that your hair is long enough no hat!!! Also, Esmerelda and I are thankful for your success and are continuing to pray for you Tiffany. There is a great Gospel song that I hope you get a chance to listen to, here is the link this song has brought Ez and I whole lot of comfort when we faced the easy and difficult times!!! Cheers Tiffany!!! Let me know what you think of the song. :)
