We are having our first real snow of the season. The Christmas lights are twinkling, the popcorn is popping and we are all watching It’s A Wonderful Life.

Pattie participated in her local Relay for Life last night. She sent this photo of the luminaria she made. The other side says, “In Loving Memory of Natalie Rose York, December 15, 1973-June 7, 2007.”
Thank you very much, Pattie!

Moving right along

Got some time with Natalie this evening. She is to be moved from the surgery floor to the oncology wing, probably tonight, and chemotherapy could start as early as tomorrow. It is good to hear from doctors with positive plans.
She is still very weak and uncomfortable. Of course, that is to be expected just three days after major surgery, but we who are demanding miracles would like to see one soon!
Nattie wants to see her children, and they need to see her…well and strong again!
Still, she has not lost her resolve to fight with whatever strength she–with your help and God’s–can muster.
We also need to thank everyone who has been such a help to all of us lately. Some of those I can remember are cousins Allen, Jill and Joy; aunts Anne and Marty; Wes and his family, Karla and Elaine; Pastor Mark and Tammy Deimer and their entire praying congregation, and especially her mom who flew out from California the day after she got the news, and is staying as long as she is needed, even though her vacation days are long gone.
And all of you who continue to stop in here and leave your words of encouragement, and pray for Natalie’s strength and miraculous healing. Don’t stop now!
Thank you so very much!–Nattie and her Daddy

“Team Nattie” updated again”

Friday, May 30th, 2008

I attended my first “team captains’ meeting” last night. It was also the last one of the year. If you ordered a shirt, it is in the mail, and should be to you by Wednesday or Thursday. I hope you can wear it on June 7, wherever you are.

I’ve done this list before, but had to do another one as an intro to yahoo group. It is actually a fun journaling prompt.


Mea Culpa!

Yesterday, Natalie was under the influence of drugs, and could not be reached for comment, leaving her helpless Daddy no choice but to listen to her doctors and update you accordingly…silly me!


Dearest Nattie…

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

I have been to your myspace at least a half dozen times, writing notes to you…missing you…wondering why in the world my heart feels so deeply and crys…I talked about you today…saying that the twos sides of me are at odds in this issue…my feelin side just feels it and responds with tears, no explanation necessary…yet my logical side, says this make no sense…in that yes, you knew her, but you didnt *know* her as many others did that would justify, explain or make sense of the tears I cry. But the logical side of me says nothing and reasons nothing, to either make the tears stop or justify the tears that flow…so I suppose I should just accept them, for whatever reason they are there and trust that God understands and knows and hears the deep of things within me.
You are soo missed, as I wrote on your myspace, even by silly girls who never even got to hug on ya…man every time I go there I cry…wonder why? Maybe cuz when I went that weekend, something about you, something within that hobbit house, something about sitting with your mom, hugging on your daddy, praying for your children, speaking into Wes’s life, sharing tears with never met before friends, left an indelible mark upon my soul…and it changes a person. Funny thing is I dont know, if we would have ever talked as friends, or if we would have discovered some passion shared…aside from the ones I know about…God, writing and cross stitch, I would have liked to have found out.
I often wonder, if you could do things different, knowing what you know now, what would you do different? I also wonder, what our answer to that question would be in light of, what we think YOU know now…about us, God, friendship, family, people, ministry…and what that answer should make US do differently, now while we can?
I cant believe we are approaching a year. Time goes by so fast, it seems we can barely catch our breaths. I pray that your babies come to saving knowledge of Christ, that they grow strong in the things of God and I pray that Wes is strengthened as a father and also comes to saving knowledge of Christ and his whole household. You know, better than any of us, how vital that is…so more than anything I pray that for them. I look forward to meeting and embracing you when God calls me home, until then girl, save me a seat.
In Him,

Just the facts…

The surgeons report that Natalie’s cancer is inoperable. She will be offered chemo as a means of extending her life. No cure is promised.
Please, God…that’s all I’ve got! — Nattie’s Daddy

An Update from Nattie’s Daddy

Monday, May 26th, 2008

(Originally published on May 25, 2007)
Just thought you’d want to know that Natalie spent Thursday night in the local hospital for observation and hydration. Although her blood pressure was elevated at the time of her admission, it had retreated to proper levels by Friday afternoon. She had lost another six pounds in the last couple of days, so she also benefitted from intravenous fluids overnight.
This evening she is being transferred to a hospital in Indianapolis. It is hoped that they are better equipped to obtain the scans that the surgeon wants before beginning his work
Please continue to pray for my little girl’s healing, and that you will soon be reading her words, here, again.
Thank you, from Natalie, her family and friends!

The race is on

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

Although the date is different, it was last year, as thousands sat on the west side of Indianapolis in eager anticipation of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” that a handful of others scattered around the world paced in hope of a good word from Indianapolis Methodist Hospital. Natalie had been in surgery since 8:00 a.m. When the word came, alas, it was not, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”
On this holiday we traditionally pause in remembrance of our nation’s military heroes. Today we remember the fight that Nattie put up in the face of insurmountable odds. A few days later, she would win the eternal prize.
Love you, girl…miss you more!
