A day in the Life of Claire

This spot is dedicated to the preparation and life of Claire Cox. Claire has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18, which is a genetic disease caused by an extra chromosome at the 18th spot. We know that God can cure Claire at any time, and continue to pray for this; however we also know that His Will, will be done!

Today is the day before the IRON BOWL, it always proves to be a great game, regardless of who wins. Also, today we had delivered a pump, which will feed Claire all night. So we no longer have the need to wake up every 3rd hour, waking her up, to feed her. You would think I am a child at Christmas. I have not looked so forward to going to bed (to get a good nights sleep) in quit a while. Of course, there is still no guarantee that she will sleep the through the night. If nothing else, at least we no longer have to set our alarms.

Wish us great sleep. We will let you know tomorrow how successful it was.

    In regard to the Ironbowl... it does matter who wins. As a friend of Joe's I need to state for the record Auburn gave Alabama the thumb this year.

    High Five, War Eagle!
