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.

Wishful Thinking


wanted to be doing this:

or this:

can you see him peeking through the fence there, on the right?

But it was much, much, much too cold for Mommy.
So he stayed behind the gate.

for more Wordful Wednesdays, check this out:


  1. Awww...

    It won't be long before it's full on swimming season. Sooner for you than it will be for me!

  2. I was thinking the same thing. Sooner for you than for me. Although I think I will be laying around this weekend getting my tan on down in AZ all the same. Ahhhhh! :)

  3. Awwwwww! It's only a matter of time...when it's warmer! ;)

  4. Oh that is just torture. Poor little guy. Hope it warms up soon so he can swim too!

  5. Aw, pour guy. But I don't blame you. We live in the midwest and my son wants to go swimming so badly but it has yet to reach 70 degrees here. Way too cold for swimming.

  6. Aww. Here's to hoping swimming warm season will come soon!

  7. gorgeous photos and i'm totally jealous that the boys are getting to swim. we're at least a month away from outside swimming
