An Amazing Turn Out for Waffle Love!

The Waffle Love truck coming last night was so exciting. The kids ran and ran in the grass out back and woke up exhausted and happy this morning, so they all bundled up with blankets to continue resting during treatments. Before Orson even got out of his bed he was asking if the waffle truck was still there so they could make him breakfast.
 
Frank and I never imagined how insane the turn out for the truck would end up. The line was continuously strong for 5 hours. I wish I would have thought to take more pictures of the event! They ran the truck an extra hour longer than planned because the line was so long! We even had a neighbor who knows the Waffle Love family jump in the back of the truck, wash up, and helped cook waffles for over 4 hours!
 
The kindness was breathtaking from people that know us first hand, and from friends of friends and strangers. We are so grateful for the work and time from so many families. There were details though of that I never could have. There were women and men who took their whole evening to be there to help. We are blown away.
 
It was unbelievable to see all that was given to us to help us get through the next couple of months of surgery, needed medical machines, and medicine costs. I wish I could bake cookies and deliver them to everyone who came and supported us, but since I can't do that I made everyone a thank you card.  We do have so much love and thanks in our hearts, and we really do think you are awesome. Thanks for helping, caring, and coming!
