Lots to report

Hello all,

It has been since Feb. since our last posting and many exciting things have happened.

First, Ellie, Erika and Peter all had birthdays! Ellie turned 6 and celebrated with her cousins and friends at Pump It Up!  Peter turned 8 and had a skating party at The Pond!  Erika on the other hand quietly celebrated her birthday without going to Pump It Up or The Pond.  It was a crazy couple of weeks, but we survived and had a lot of fun.

Second, Peter and Erika left for NYC today for his 3 month scans and tests.  As far as we can tell, he is doing great with his energy, appetite, attitude and all else physical.  So we will keep praying for clean tests and scans and hope the trip to NYC is uneventful from that perspective.  Hopefully the weather will be good and Erika and Peter can have a little fun.  I know he brought some birthday money to spend at the NHL Store, so that should be fun.

Third, we are moving again.  Yes, you heard that correctly.  I have accepted an assistant coach position at Bowling Green State University.  I have always wanted to get into college hockey and to have a chance to do it at my alma mater was an opportunity we could not pass up.  The next few monthes will be a little crazy, but we are used to that.  We are nervous and very excited about this new chapter in our lives.

Also, keep praying for Mary Virnig as she continues her battle with neuroblastoma.  She is one of the most couragous young women we know and her family is priceless.  She is currently at the U of M awaiting another transplant.  Also, add Jackie Bishoff to your prayer list.  She is the mother of 4 and was recently diagnosed with Lung cancer.  She is a fighter and an overachiever and we expect her to take this battle head on.

Finally, thank you all so much for all the prayers and support for Peter and our family.  We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives.

God Bless,

Ty, Erika, Peter, Ellie and Kate

  7. Hi Eigners,

    So nice to look every now and then and see continued good reports. Good luck to you in your new adventure. I did want to ask if Peter still gets his Beads of Courage. Has he gotten his Purple Heart? If you get this in time Beads of Courage is up for the Pepsi Refresh everthing Grant of 25,000 for the month of July. They could use your daily vote. They are currently in 14th place and need to be in the top 10 to receive the grant. Go to http://www.refresheverything.com/beadsofcourage and vote everyday for the month of July. Thanks and again so happy to see good news on Peter’s Page!!


  8. Our family wishes you well in your new endeavors. we certainly feel a loss to have you out of state but for friends who share a challenge together, time and distance is immaterial. We are bonded, just waiting for our next reunion.
