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.

A Little Too Much

If I played with my children a little
If I ate and talked and cuddled with my husband a little
If I exercised a little
If I read my book a little
If I wrote a little
If I socialized a little
If I cleaned a little
If I washed and folded a little
If I walked my dogs a little 
If I didn't yell too much
If I didn't spend too much
If I didn't eat too much
If I didn't waste too much time on the computer (ahem...)

Then I fall asleep at peace.

I just wish those days happened a little more often...

"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."
*John Burroughs
