Michael has been doing so good.  He still has not gained much height, but we are hoping that will come.  I have begun painting the cars sences on the walls of the boys room.  They are so excited.  I will post pictures when I have finished them.  Tristan said, "Mom, one day you are doing to be an artist".  How funny.   Michael is getting closer to being potty trained.  He made it through the day yesterday and did not pee in his pull up.  We were so proud of him.  The children have started to settle down from last year and we are able to enjoy them a lot more.  We hope you are bless.  It still amazes us the amount of people that are praying for Michael.  We thank God for you.  On September 9th we take Michael to a genetics doctor.  They will look at the families information and try to determine what might have caused the cancer.

Michael is doing well and we thank you for all your prayers.  Please keep the prayers coming.    Michael will be seeing a couple of new doctors now.  He will be going to a cancer genetics doctor to let us know what to expect as Michael grows up.  They will also use the information collected to get more information for the hepatoblasoma (the cancer Michael had).  Then Michael will see a gland specialist to determine if Michael has any issues with his development.  Michael will still see the oncologist and they will check to make sure he is still ok.  His next appointment for Michael's oncologist is November.  Michael can not wait to go and sing tomorrow at church.  When we tell him it is church day he will say Yeah!.

Michael is still doing good.  He is going to see a cancer genetics specialist in next few months and a gland specialist.  The cancer genetics group will be letting us know what to expect for Michael.  They will also take some information for cancer research.  The gland group will check to see if Michael has any issues developing.   Michael will still need your prayer for many years.  In 5 years we hope to hear the words "he's cured", but for now we will praise God for the remission

Michael's first dentist appointment.  He did great.  He started to cry at first but then calmed down and was a trooper.  They said that the chemo did not affect his teeth.  The dentist said that his teeth were look great.  He was ready to go back to the dentist again the next day.  He was a bit disappointed when I told him that we could not go to the dentist.  Hope all of you are doing well.

Michael continues to do well.  He is becoming more active and wants to go all the time now.  We are enjoying the last bit of summer before the school season.  We have the new van and it is an Honda Odyseey again.  Our last Odyssey was great and we had no problems with it, so we decided to get another.  The children enjoy the dvd system in it.  We hope all is going well with you.  Please keep the prayers coming.  Michael is in remission but not cured yet.  That will come in about 5 or 6 years.  He will need your continued prayer that the cancer stays free from his body.  If after 18 months Michaels chances of cure will go way up.  Then each year after that he will get better odds of survival.  Thank you are prayer warriors.
