November 22, 2007 - Giving Thanks!

Looking back on the year, we have so much to be grateful for. We give thanks to God for Keira. We are grateful for her wonderful response to treatment, and for the absence of complications through her treatment. We truly have seen a miracle. We are grateful that we are able to look at each day as a gift. We are not guaranteed a certain amount of time with anyone - we realize that now. Every day we have as a family is one that we cherish. Our eyes have been opened to the amazing family and friends we have. We have been shown love far beyond what we deserve or can repay. Thank you. We are grateful for others we have met along the journey who are walking this same road. They are an incredible inspiration to us and have supported us in ways they will never know.

Thank you. We hope you each has a wonderful Thanksgiving

Jason, Erin, and Keira Grace

Nov 6, 2007 - It's Out!

Keira did great today, and so did Children's. We showed up at 7:00am in presurgery, prepared for a long day. We had books, dvds, blankets etc. At 8:15 they took Keira back for surgery and she was done by 9. She woke up easily without any real fussiness, and we were allowed to leave by 11. We could not have asked for things to have gone any more smoothly! Keira is doing great and had a good day - once we got some food in her. : )

The plan remains to watch closely. We will keep you posted as she has new test results, but for now we are looking forward to putting some funny stories about her adventures on the blog. We are still planning her celebration party and will send out info once we have plans finalized.

Thank you always for your prayers. Keira is a very blessed little girl to have so many praying for her. We honestly did not expect her to complete chemo with so few complications and with such wonderful results. We feel like we have been given a huge gift.

Nov 5, 2007 - Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a great day! At 7:00 am we will be checking Keira in at pre-surgery to have her port removed. We eagerly covet your prayers that everything runs smoothly and tomorrow night we will bring Keira home portless for the first time in many months!

We will post again to let everyone know how it went. Thank you

About Me

2 years and I still love cake!

First trip to the zoo - a great reward after a long day at Childrens!

I see how long it's taking mommy to get through - I'd better get started now!
