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...

Who is NED?

Just wanted to make a "quick" post and let you know that we did get good news today! Charli's tumor did not shrink, but it did not grow either - so "no change" is good news for us.

This is actually the first visit we have had with our doctor where the phrase no evidence of disease (NED) was mentioned...so we left feeling good about that. We realize that, that doesn't mean we are in the free and clear, but it sure makes sleeping at night a bit easier we hope. I felt like I was going to fall over with relief when I heard "the scans are unchanged", what a relief to hear - you can't even imagine.

Charli had a rough day - so I hope she gets a good nights rest and can start new tomorrow...poor thing :-(

I will post more later this weekend, but for now just wanted you to all know that God has blessed us again, and we are eternally thankful. Oh, and Charli was able to get her flu shot today! We should be able to start vaccinating in a few weeks to get her all caught up! PRAISE THE LORD! Life is great =-)

PS. Charli had a GREAT time at her Halloween party! I won't be able to post pictures of that until after Halloween because we are keeping her costume a surprise from those who get to see her that night!!! SORRY!!!!

Such wonderful news! What a great way to start off what sounds like a fun weekend! I can't wait to see pictures of Charli's costume!

that is AWESOME news!!!! I think they use the term NED for 5 years and once you pass that 5 yr mark then we get into the word.... remission. It's so hard for our NB kids to get there so they don't use remission much, but I have faith that both of our little girls will make it to remission and then even farther!! =)

Thank God, we need more children to be NED, it keeps breaking my heart when I find out another child has lost the battle to NB. Charli I am sooo happy for you and your family, Brenda hang in there, now you can start counting the days, months and years just like us for Mackenzie, it feels so good when our prayers are answered. We will keep checking on Charli.
