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...

moments of truth

Tomorrow is the day we have been waiting for, for a long time. We have to be in Omaha by 8:00 tomorrow morning for her CT which is scheduled for 10:45. This test will show the progress of Charli's tumor on her spine.
I don't really expect to know anything before coming home tomorrow, but I would really like to! The less time we have to sit and wonder the better. I have been a wreck, and imagine it will only get worse with waiting.

Please say an extra prayer for us tomorrow. Up until now, we have been able to "ignore" everything that has happened and go on with life, kind of like it never happened. But now, although we are confident we will get good news...we are having to deal with it and think about it, and it is hard.

Also, please say a prayer for Keira. They are in the same boat we are. I pray for good news for their family.

My very good friend Linda sent us a beautiful flower arrangement today. I will show a few pictures. I was playing with my camera and took different shots, accenting the different colors. The flowers are a very pretty yellow, purple, blue, pink, and green. They were a nice pick-me-up after the day I had been having! Put a few things into perspective for me, I will admit!
ADD TO THE LIST: I thank God for good friends.

I will say extra prayers for your family tonight. Hopefully you can find some comfort in knowing that there are many families doing the same. Try to get some rest and remember it is ok to cry!

I just lifted your family up in prayer. I will continue to do so throughout the day. I do so everytime I look at the blue bracelet around my wrist. God is good!

Praying for precious Charli down here in South Texas. She is always on my heart and is a beautiful baby girl. Praying especially hard for mom and dad. Brenda, I admire your honesty with your fears and concerns. You are an incredible mom and Chad is a great father. God chose you two to be Charli's special angels and I know that sweet baby blesses you richly everyday.

I'm guessing Charli will be heading in for her CT any minute. Tons of prayers for her, and all of your family.

Well the CT should be done now! Hoping it went well and the results are just what you were wanting! Thank you for sharing her (and your) journey with us all! God bless!

I hope to hear soon about your results.... crossing our fingers that they are good. =) Isabella has her round of scans next week, MRI on the 8th, MIBG on the 9th and then the Bone Scan on the 13th. I'd like to say that it gets easier, but even after 2 years off treatment we are probably just as nervous as you guys. We are sending prayers your way!
