January 2014 MRI Results

Emmett's MRI last week was clear -- YAY!  We've been on cloud nine since we got the results and haven't gotten around to posting the news until now (to those of you on Facebook this is old news).  Thank you so much for your prayers and faith! They had to keep us in the hospital for an extra day because of complications with the anesthesia, and we were sweating bullets the whole time, but when we finally got the good news that the MRI was clear we were ecstatic and it didn't matter anymore where we were or what we were doing.

I can't even begin to explain the anxiety that surrounds these quarterly MRI scans...many parents of kids with cancer call it scanxiety.  It's horrible.  Your whole world comes to a stop as you await the results....wondering if you've been blessed with another 3 months free from cancer, or whether it's going to start all over again....and with a much smaller chance of a good outcome.  It was especially difficult for me this time as Emmett's been complaining of random pinky pain off and on since Christmas (more on that later).

But for now we're celebrating...every day with our most precious child.  We continue to pray for many many more days and cannot overstate our appreciation for those who are praying with us.  God bless you all.

We have some follow ups this week and would appreciate any prayers for Emmett.  Things have been good since we arrived back in New Mexico.  We'll post more soon.
