We have wonderful news for everyone.  Michael is offical, he is in remission.  I got the word from his doctors.  If he can stay cancer free for 18 months his chances for being cured go way up.  We still have to wait for 5 years before we get the "He's cured statement", but we will take the words remission right now.  He still has the three nodules and one tiny one.  They hope will go away, but then again they could be scare tissue.  We are now on a every 4 month schedule for MRI and CT scans.  Praise the Lord for giving us back our little boy.  I am so excited!  Yeah, Yeah.  Thanks for the prayers for Michael and our family.  We are so blessed to have so many praying for him.  Thursday is cancer awareness day.  We need to pray that a cure for cancer will come soon.

Our big boom

Well some of you know about this and other do not.   Our family was in a major car crash that caused a great deal of damage to the Honda.  God was watching over us.  Praise God we were all OK.  We came out of it with big bruises, seat belt burns and being really sore.  Russ got burned by the airbag, 2nd degree burns.  Michael is OK and just loosened one of his teeth and had seat belt burns.  He told dad the next day that he did not want a big boom today.  I asked him what he was thinking about before going to sleep the night of the boom and he said the tree and crying.   The children all have taken it well.  Russ was a little nerves getting back in the car to drive on Tuesday when he went back to work, but is managing to get to work and back.  Tristan had to get stitches in his forehead and will get those out next week.  Makayla just was a little sore the first couple of days.  I was the one with really big bruises and bad seat belt burns. My Nephew Jamie had seat belt burns and a fractured breast bone.  Have a look at our poor Honda.

Michael's day at the hospital went well.  They were behind already that morning.  I guess they had a complicated person to scan before Michael could get his scan done.  When he woke up from the procedure he was a bit whiny.  His throat was sore from the tube, but as soon as he knew he was going to leave the hospital he was all better.  He wanted to go and get blueberry pancakes, so I took him to Bob Evans.  We should know the results of the scan on the 15th of July.  That is when we meet with the oncologists again.  He is still staying so very active.  He loves to be outside and he loves going to church.  He goes to Sunday School, but then wants to be in the main service.  I guess he is not much of a nursery kid. 

Last night we talked to his grandparents in New Zealand and he loves to play with them through the camera.  Hidings, dancing or play talking on the phone with Granddad.  It is lovely seeing him acting like a three year old again.

Michael will be going for his MRI tomorrow to check his liver.  The last scan was really good.  Luckly he will be going just for the MRI.  In two weeks he will go see the doctor and they will tell us what the next step of his treatment will be.  So up early in the morning and off to the hospital.  Please pray that all goes well and that Michaels scans go well.  Thank you to all that have been praying for Michael.
