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...

we could feel it!!

First of all...good news today!!

Charli's scans showed no change (which is a good thing) with the initial review! They will, of course, look at them in more detail and in comparison to her old scans to be 100% sure.

Although I had a lot of anxiety going in to these scans, I was very peaceful and calm this morning!!

I shared this with a few girls at work this week, but thought I needed to share it here too...because it has a lot to do with all of you! After I mentioned the excessive blinking that Charli had been doing and what that could possibly mean, I know that so many of you lifted her up in prayers. And now...two weeks later, I can see that the blinking has decreased. This is just one reason it is so easy for us to have faith.

Charli and I had lots of fun with the camera while we were in with getting her scans - I will post those and more details about how today went. I just wanted to let everyone know our good news!!

On a side note, we will go back in 6 months for another scan...and after that point they will extend her testing to ONCE a year, and may not even do scans at that visit. Ahhh, I say this with exciting and hesitation. It is amazing that they are so confident in her success that they feel comfortable doing this, I hesitate to make this step because right now we are getting reassurance twice a year on how well she is doing!!

have a great weekend everyone...what a great way to start ours!

I am PRAISING God with you I so understand what it feels like to wait on test results and then when the phone rings my heart starts to race and I feel like I could throw up!!! I just tell myself while waiting God LOVES my boy more then I do even though it is hard for me to understand it. GOD IS SO GOOD!!!!

This is great news NED forever!!!Brenda I know the anxiety of not scanning anymore, Mackenzie has not scanned since March when she had a false positive. I'm going with NYC recomendation and not having Mackenzie scanned anymore, even though this is such a relief it also scares me "what if" but like you said its all about faith and just believe that everything is going to be alright. Our girls came so far and they need to be normal playfull children with no worries, no boo-boo's and for us not to see them cry anymore is a blessing.

Many cyber hugs to you all,
