The Latest

I am amazed at how long I continue to go between posts.  I'm sure you are tired of hearing how busy we are, but I will continue to use that as my excuse. ;)

Unfortunately, the doctors at NIH decided it was not in Freddie's best interest to continue the medication he was on.  We are now 4 weeks without treatment.  They want him to go at least 2-4 more weeks before seeking any type of treatment in order for his colon to heal.  We don't know what our next direction is.  Most likely a different chemo until the next trial starts.  Please pray for Freddie.  He is continuing to have a lot of pain.

I continue to stay busy with my new career and responsibilities at home.  I'm learning to balance an overflowing plate, but continue to find grace in the process.  I am enjoying my role with New York Life and seeing the difference I am able to make for families.  I appreciate the support and encouragement so many of you are showing me.  It is humbling.  Thank you.

Will continues to grow, change, and learn.  He is 15 months old today.  His newest obsession is Elmo.  His voice is the sweetest when he tries to sing Elmo's theme song.  He loves music and anytime a song ends, he applauds (whether it's on the radio, iPod, tv, etc).  He is saying quite a few words and I must admit has had to have his fair share of time outs.  My love for him is indescribable and I am amazed and humbled that God graced us with him.

We appreciate your continued prayers and support.  I have to continue to remind myself that it isn't about the destination, but the journey that gets us there.  God is teaching us much and we continue to try to seek Him and know that He is always there, even when it doesn't feel like it.

I hope this finds you enjoying your week and feeling blessed by all He has given you.
