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.

Our friends visited Yellowstone, WY

Thanks again.
You are all so sweet.


  1. I hope it's OK, I am putting Andrew on my sidebar. I never comment on your blog - I am always crying too much to know what to write.
    My son was born with a heart condition - God healed him. I pray the same for you and your family.
    You are a very brave woman.

  2. These are all pretty cute. He's such a trouper for putting up with modeling this crazy hat collection. ;)

  3. I stumbled across your blog and wanted to let you know that one more momma is praying for your son's healing and God's blessing of peace for you and your family.
    Does your son have a Kentucky Wildcats hat yet? :)

  4. Hooray for hats! I just posted all these to the Hats Off site, too. =>
