Busy busy busy

We have been home a little over a week and we are just now getting settled back in.

We have been busy getting unpacked and organized, busy giving medicine every.six.hours and busy being just a little lazy.

And busy eating all the yummy food people have brought by. People are so kind :)

Tomorrow we have our clinic appointment to check Jackson's counts. We should hear the final results from the pathologists in Boston. Please say a prayer for good news!

Friday we have a follow-up with the plastic surgeon, physical therapy and a follow-up with the orthopedic surgeon. Jack is walking better every day, but he will definitely benefit from physical therapy. He is not quite up to running yet.

Next week we have an appointment with the radiation doctor to talk about our plan. Jackson will have a "planning" scan to see how much radiation he will get each time and how many weeks radiation will last.

Today we took Brayden to the doctor for his one-year well visit. He is in the 92% for height and the 26% for weight! Tall and skinny :)

I am still planning on posting about Jackson's birthday! Just have to sort through all the pictures.

Don't forget, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Two things you can do to show your support for those fighting childhood cancer:

'Like' Petals and Stems on Facebook. Petals and Stems will donate $.50 to Heroes for Children for every new like in September!

Donate HERE! The J-Team has met our goal, but you can still donate! Every single dollar goes directly to helping families in Texas who are battling childhood cancer.

As always, thank you so much for your love, support and prayers!!

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16



  1. Love you all! And you are all always in my prayers. XXOO

  2. Sending prayers and good thoughts your way!

  3. I'm thinking of you and praying for Jackson. This sucks! Whenever someone remarks about my son who died (that it must have been the worst thing), I always say "no, I never had to watch him suffer". God be with you, and Jackson, and your whole family.
    Good for your skinny kid too, who got a good check up. I have one of those, looks like Don Knotts and Mrs. Hathaway from the Beverly Hillbillies got together!
    I've worked in therapy with children and I know moms are the best voice for their kids. Stay true and know you have many arms reaching to you in prayer.

  4. Hello,

    I haven't written before, but have followed your little man's journey for several months now. I wanted to let you know that we have a prayer website that has been a great blessing to many. I fell behind on it for a while due to health issues of my own, but am now back to updating it. The site links you to other families as well as many, many people who would love to pray for your son. If you are interested, the site link is below. No matter what you decide, please know my prayers are with you.
