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!

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.
