Recent Trip to St. Jude

I Iam sorry it has been so long since my last post. When we found out that the tumor had not grown we were so relieved and felt like things could really get back to normal around our house. We have been trying to get back on some kind of schedule and be normal again.
Our trip went very well. We took Lyla with us this time and it worked out really well. She was a good distraction for Abby and they both seemed to do better having each other. Abby was very brave during all of her procedures. She still doesn't like having to get an IV but she was the most calm she has ever been this time. After her MRI she told me that she loves having pictures taken of her head! She also said she loved our hotel (Grizzlies House). It was nice to hear her say that-I guess this all will become normal for us. When Dr. Armstrong called and told us the tumor hadn't grown, we were ecstatic! We went to eat at a fancy restaurant to celebrate! We also took the girls on the trolley which they loved!

The next day she had her EEG and did wonderful during that! Then we got to come home. Overall, a very good trip. Oh yeah, she got to sit on Santa's lap and make a superhero cape while we were there! They always have fun activities for them!

We appreciate everyone for the prayers and love they have shown to us. Please continue to pray for Abby that the tumor will never grow!

"And the Lord, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed."

  1. This is wonderful news. I will continue to pray for you and your family. My father-in-law was diagnosed with multiple myeloma last summer. He is in remission but is going through testing this week to make sure he is still in remission. I can't imagine going through this with a child. I have a 6-year- old and a 2-year-old. God Bless all of you!!

  2. I am so happy to hear all of the wonderful news. Thank you for keeping us updated. We will continue to pray for Abby and your family:) Kellie Beggs
