Day 5 - Results!

Thank you to all of you who continued to pray, light candles, or do what ever you have done. We got the ALL clear today!!!

Kayla's cuff removal when as smooth as it could have possibly gone. We have a small bandage covering the site for now and will have to keep it dry for 10 days. A small price to pay to have the plastic cuff that resembled calamari finally removed once and for all.  

Luckily, Kayla's lumbar puncture went just as smoothly. It only took one stick and her spinal fluid was CLEAR.  I am so grateful that we can once again exhale. We will be returning back to St. Jude in 3 months to do this all over again.

This is Kayla and I about to head back to the OR. Sleeeeeeepy time! :)

Today, I met one of the most inspirational people ever. Adam Long. It was an honor to meet him and a blessing to tell him in person how incredible I think he is.  If you want to read an incredible article, click on this link:  http://www.stjude.org/the-fighter

Kayla was so inspired by Adam's bravery and positive attitude.  So am I.  So will all of you, I just know it!

Tomorrow we will board a plane and head home. Cancer free for now! Blessed forever. 


One more bit of good news, Denny PASSED his CNA test! He is now officially certified... we are so very proud of him. Way to go!!!!
