Myeloma and Hope

Not a post about FL, but about a new life over in the USA.

Little Ruby Carroll Brabbs, born just days after her dad's stem cell transplant.

Is it just me, or is she a symbol of hope for the future? I think so.

I promise not to get all sentimental about babies and what might have been. We will toast little Ruby tonight, and her brave crazy parents!

Amen to your post about Baby Ruby! It is a picture of hope, and life and joy! Rebirth and the knowledge that what we do, what we say and how we live our lives goes on after we are gone. You don't even have to have kids to make a difference in young lives! She is a beautiful young girl and I'm glad she is here and healthy! Nice post and blessed I can add to it!

What a great post and it warms my heart to Ruby that much more!

Yes.....we're definitely crazy! But also crazy hopeful :)

Question: is Ruby a more common baby name in the UK right now? It is extremely unique in the U.S. and especially the area we live in.

My husband and I have been reading your blog for some time. I have myeloma. We don't know either of you but we talk as if we do. "Have you heard anything about First Love's health?" "What is Roobeedoo knitting now and what will she wear to the
wedding in August?" Your husband is such a handsome gentleman and you are absolutely stunning. We wish you a beautiful dress for August and wish First Love good health. Gentle hugs and prayers for you both.
