In April, 2010, when Andrew was 2 1/2, a tumor was discovered behind his eye. The tumor was removed, but it was found to be an aggressive cancer. He endured seven months of chemo and six weeks radiation. In December of 2010, the day after his last treatment, he was rushed to the ER with an almost fatal bacterial infection. He survived.

He is now seven-years-old!! I don't visit here much, because during the ordeal, this is where I dumped everything--my rage, my fear, my sadness, my ugly, my hope, my everything. But I want all of you who supported and prayed for us to hear his updates. You helped me survive, and I am deeply thankful. Every once in awhile, I will check in to let you know how he's doing. Please continue to pray that cancer will never return to his body. Thank you.

My camera broke. 
 Yup.  Too many pictures. 
The trigger button popped off of my little Sony Cybershot. 
Too many pictures of "feet" (this week's "You capture")  
too many pictures of boys,
too many pictures of, well, everything. 
Just when I was getting excited about it.

So, now I am trying to figure out what to do.
Do I buy a new EXPENSIVE camera?
or do I just go buy another Point and Shoot...
or do I send it in and fix it?
(not sure if that would even work, or how expensive).

I didn't want to have to face this question until my birthday
and then I wouldn't have felt so bad about "how much"...



  1. Oh no!!! That's just awful. Perhaps this is an opportunity for something wonderful and new. If I were to buy a new point and shoot, I'd probably buy a Panasonic Lumix or some model of Olympus.

  2. I am so sorry!
    That's how we ended up getting our nice fancy camera (though it's pretty basic, a Nikon D3000... we traded in some other electronic device to an amazon buy back program and it made it a little less $$) our point and shoot just up and died one day :( It's so sad when you don't have a camera! Hope you find a solution soon!

  3. That sucks. I hope you don't go through withdrawal too badly while you decide what to do. :(
