Maui bound

Fyfe and Zoe Kellermyer, Emalia, and Brooke
Jessica Casey and Emalia
We fly home to Maui tomorrow morning and soooo looking forward to being back with our Maui family and friends again. And, we are simultaneously sad to leave our mainland family and friends, who include many new people who now reside in our hearts.

Emalia is still having a really rough time--although you wouldn't know it from the pictures I've posted because my camera only comes out when Emalia's having a good moment! One of her greatest wishes is to have even an hour of feeling good.  In public, she hides her pain and never complains but when in private succumbs.

Emalia is having a lot of pain and nausea and is deeply fatigued much of the time. She is looking forward to seeing you but feels she needs to ease back into Maui life slowly as she focuses on resting and healing.

Dylan Casey, Emalia, Jess,
JB and Emalia--one of many dinners at the Caseys' house!
