Yeah...sigh of relief!

Lisa's scans came back STABLE!!  Yeah!! Again, with no known cure...stable is what we hope for.  Her scans look good, her energy is good, her attitude is awesome.

She will return to school the week after Easter break and we are very happy and thanking God for his blessings.

Speaking of blessing, I was reading a childhood cancer newsletters and one of the posts was about how people wish their "support team" would actually make good on their offer of "what can I do for you to help"   We are so blessed this has never been as issue for us.  We have the most wonderful group of supporters ever!! Not once have we ever needed or asked for something and someone has  not stepped up.  All of our readers who read, pray and think of us.  Our schools and teachers who take the extra steps to make sure all of my kids are doing okay.  Friends and family who are there when we need them.  We are so appreciative of all of you.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

I'd like to send a special shout out to a few special individuals who've helped while Lisa has been homebound.

Lisa G., Matt, and Bonnie....these guys ROCK:)  They were our caregivers for Lisa on the days she was home and Mike and I had to work.  Not only did they come every week, each of them established their own special routine and activities with Lisa and she loved, loved, loved the time they spent with her.

Ms. Mattson....with her efforts, we were able to arrange with the school district that Lisa get homebound teaching from her classroom parapro...Ms. Ava...who came 3 x's a week while Ms. Mattson came 2ce a week.  Thank you to these two wonderful ladies who provided Lisa with learning and structure a few hours during the week. 

Hulsing Elementary PTG...they surprised us with a monetary donation they had collected.  It was totally unexpected and a most wonderful surprise.

So...Life is Good and we are living and loving every minute.  Thank you to all of you who help make our journey bearable:)

PS...Anyone have a pair of crutches I could borrow? I tore my calf muscle this morning working out and am not allowed to "bear weight" on my right leg...doc has prescribed rest (haha), physical therapy, and crutches.....let me know if you or someone you know has crutches..thanks!
