Great NEWS!!!

Lily's MRI results is still clear!!!  This MRI was more nerve-wracking for me 
since it was the first MRI since she was off chemo so I actually got to breath a 
HUGE sigh or relief when Lily's oncologist told me the news. 
Tomorrow, we will be meeting with Dr. Lam, the surgeon, who will be removing 
Lily's port-a-cath on Monday, September 27 at 11am so if you can say a prayer 
for her then, I'd really appreciate it.  Although this is a routine surgery, it 
is still a surgery and Dr. Lam is a skilled surgeon but I'm sure he wouldn't 
mind the prayer support :-) 
Thanks again for all your prayers and well wishes!

Time again

I can't believe this past 3 months snuck by me! Lily's first MRI after ending 
her chemotherapy is this coming Wednesday, September 15. Can you please say a 
prayer for her that she is still tumor-free? If all goes well and there are no 
signs of her tumor coming back, she will have her port-a-cath removed at the end 
of the month or beginning of October.  This will be a welcome relief because any 
fevers that Lily spikes after her port-a-cath is removed won't automatically 
mean a trip to the ER and hospital admittance. 
Two and a half weeks ago we celebrated a HUGE milestone of Lily - she took her 
first steps on her own and is continuing to walk further and is now learning to 
stand up without  using any props like the wall, couch or people :-) We are 
hoping she will be off and running in a couple of months. Although she does have 
to see an orthopedist to most likely get an ankle brace for her foot but this 
will hopefully aid in her walking more balanced. 
Thanks again for all of your love, support and prayers! I will email again soon 
with the results from the MRI.
