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.

Hello out there

I haven't even visited my blog since my last entry!! I haven't written in my journal with a pen. I needed (and probably still need) time to just sit with everything.  I've also been reading books like a maniac and spending time with my boys.

But, I wanted to let you know that Andrew's most recent scans were clean.   I spent the whole day a complete nervous wreck, but everything was okay.  So hooray!!

Here is a recent picture:

We had some family pictures taken, and these were my favorites:

I have missed visiting you all, and I hope you are doing well.  Thank you so much for your prayers.
