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 Walk

Yesterday Andrew and I went for a walk with the dogs while the older boys were at school...
I am practicing getting better with my camera, so I took it along.

One of our neighbors always has a bin full of free citrus,
so we always look forward to taking home a few ripe oranges.

and then we eat them in the front yard.  They are WAY too messy and juicy for inside.

Happy Tuesday! :)


  1. I would LOVE a neighbor with a box of free fruit :) Also love the picture of all the juice dripping down his arm! Nicely done.

  2. Nice! Love the photos, especially the first one. Those are some juicy oranges. I can just imagine... makes me wish for summer... and California!

  3. I love the shots with oranges, those are amazing!
