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.

I Heart Faces: Drama in the Sand

Well, before my camera broke this week,
(my diagnosis: Excessive Pointing and Shooting),
I managed to squeeze in this photo of my son at the park.

He was very upset to observe that other children had access to the sand,
and even more upset to observe that they like to destroy sand castles as much as he does.


  1. Ha! this is totally fitting for the theme of DRAMATIC! What a great entry!

  2. Very Dramatic! Don't you love kids drama?! Great photo :)

  3. Okay, if you're taking pics like this (awesome!)with your point and shoot - it's definitely time to buy the fancy expensive camera. We did. And it's some of the best money we've ever invested. Well, that and a trampoline, but that's another story.

    Shell out the big bucks, girlfriend!

  4. Awww so cute! I love his expression.
