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...

let's play a game, called HURRY UP AND WAIT.

Oh boy! The good Lord has given two of the most impatient people a BIG challenge in life...waiting for something at every corner!

Charli had her CT today, and she did pretty well. Her last "meal" was at 2 am this morning, and she didn't get to eat until close to 2:00 this afternoons. She is a tough cookie! The test was on time today, we were thankful for that. We did run into a change of plans with Charli's sedation. The last time they sedated her she wouldn't fall asleep so they had to use something different this time, but it would keep her sleeping for about two hours...so we were not able to leave the hospital until 3:30, we were checked in by 8:00 this morning. Once she woke up, she was like a drunk little salior! Poor thing, she just couldn't get her balance! It was a long day, but not one of the longest - and I think it went pretty fast.

I am hoping to get a call by Thursday about our next plan of action. I am so nervous and afraid of what they will say, and I know Chad is too. All I want is for the next step to be the right step, the first time...and I want it to be over. We are so blessed to know that this treatment is working so far on Charli - so many families do not get that news, so I am thankful for that. Remember Penelope...her parents would have given anything and everything to just hear that SOMETHING was working, and here I am - sometimes I feel so selfish.

I will post something as soon as I get "the" call later this week. I have some other pictures and stories to post. This weekend was Chad's sisters (Jennifer) baby shower. All of Chad's family came to the house for pizza that evening, and we had a nice time...I will tell all about it later - once this is off my back!

Thanks for checking in! Please keep Keira and her family in your prayers and thoughts today as she goes in for her scans tomorrow (Wednesday) and will review the results on Friday with their dr. So many people are holding their breathe this week. Regardless of what we hear this week, we know that we can move forward...and I think that will make everything alright.

Never take the slightest thing for granted, to the person next to you, that thing may be their world.

You have every right to feel selfish Brenda-don't ever feel as though you should feel bad for that either! Charli is YOUR world. I will anxiously be awaiting the news from the CT scan. Thank you for the update and God Bless!
