What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

1/2 way there...

I am sorry I haven’t updated since Charli’s treatment – things have been busy here!

Charli went through her 4th treatment just as strong as ever! She ate really well in the hospital (compared to what she normally does) and slept fairly well too! She was all smiles for the nurses and even got some fun play time!

On Saturday Charli was able to have play time in the “play room” at the hospital. She crawled around there like she was a pro! It was the first real time she got to crawl, and she was great at it. She liked so many of the toys; it was cute to see her crawl to what she wanted. But, she got tuckered out pretty quickly so we didn’t play long.

We came home as scheduled on Sunday and Charli was glad to be home…she crawled all over looking for her “brothers”. I think she is starting to become attached to them, and was a little sad that they weren’t here. She does like when they give her attention!

Since we have been home she hasn’t eaten that well, but hope that will change in a few days.

Charli continues to progress so well, it is fun to watch. She is pulling herself up in her crib, crawling like crazy, and becoming such a big girl! She has had a night or two of really great sleep, and we hope that continues.

In two weeks we will go back to Omaha for more tests and scans. The doctor is anticipating seeing that the chemotherapy has been working, but not enough to consider surgery as an option now – and will continue with 4 more cycles. Time will tell. I think that will be a long and hard day. Even if we get the answers we are expecting it will be sad knowing we have 12 more weeks of chemo for Charli. But…this is the plan we started with and can’t be too discouraged by it, as long as it is working – that is what is important.
are you kidding, I can touch that. MOM, did you hear what daddy said?!

okay, let me feel again...so soft!


is it just me, or does this John Deere steer a little hard?

okay daddy, where's my leash?

more - more -more


I learned that I can reach things "outside" of my crib, if I try HARD enough!



on our way to the play room, for the VERY first time...I had so much fun!




this was my most favorite toy in the joint...it was a blast!


FASTER DADDY....FASTER!

Look at her Brenda, what a big girl she is! It's so hard to believe how old they are getting, isn't it? I love the pictures...she's so gorgeous and what a smile! I am so happy to hear that she's doing so well (AND CRAWLING) and that the treatments are going as planned. I look forward to chatting with you soon!
