I am thankful for...

...discovery of the tumor on a random Friday night. gut feeling that I should not put off getting it checked out.

...our pediatrician who always had a next step. doctors who give little boys Hot Wheels.

...proximity to several outstanding pediatric hospitals.

...that Jackson is young enough that he will have little or no memory of this.

...other cancer Mommas that I have connected with.

...modern medicine and technology.

...mother's intuition. husband's job and how flexible they are being. calls, texts, emails, cards from friends showing they care. faith.

...friends who are family. that have always, and will always, be there. husband, who is the best father EVER.

...our new church family.

...the kindness of complete strangers.

...the many ways God has been working in our lives to prepare us for this.


...being able to be at home with the boys. car, Sonic, country roads and Yo Gabba Gabba playing in the backseat.

Instead of being angry, I will be thankful.

Instead of questioning, I will trust.

Instead of hoping, I will ask.

Instead of doubting, I will believe.

But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
James 1:6


Jackson is doing great today! He has eaten well the past couple of days. I am hoping that he will not have lost any more when we go to the doctor Monday. He is still sleeping a little more than normal. His energy and general happiness keep me going!

Brayden is 9 months today! I do not know how that is possible--time is flying. He is a very sweet, snuggly baby, but he has a set of lungs like no other! Brayden's current obsessions are toilet paper and the dishwasher. Jackson loves Brayden so much, and thankfully, the feeling is mutual. Brayden thinks Jackson is the funniest thing ever :)

  1. You inspire me to be a better mom and overall better person. We shouldn't question or doubt anything but have total and complete faith. Thank you for this beautiful post. We are still praying for you guys. Oh, and how cute is Brayden?? I can't believe he's 9 months!

  2. You are my hero! Really. You are so strong! Praying everyday for y'all!
