ALL CLEAR for Lily!!!

Whew after a crazy last 4 days, the oncologist called and said that Lily's scan 
results are still clear!!!  Yippee!  Thanks SO much for all your emails, 
thoughts and prayers!!!  I was reading the emails during Lily's MRI while in the 
waiting room and they helped calm me. 
The MRI almost didn't happen on Wednesday and we were supposed to get the 
results yesterday at Lily's oncologist appointment but Mission MRI Imaging hired 
a new person who is doing everything by the book so CHOC oncology couldn't get 
the results in time for Lily's appointment since the new person had sent it to 
medical records instead of faxing it to the oncology clinic.  I swear you would 
think that since Lily gets her scans every 3 months, things would become routine 
but each time something different happens -- never a dull moment! :-)  I'm just 
SO SO happy that she is still clear! 
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

Lily's MRI scheduled for this Wednesday

It's that time again...Lily's 3 month MRI.  She will be having her MRI done this 
Wednesday, March 9 at 9:00 am.  Yup on Ash Wednesday!  So for those of you that 
are getting your ashes that morning, can you say a little prayer that her scan 
is still clear?  And as always, it would mean the world to me if you please keep 
her in your thoughts and prayers the next couple of days. We have an appointment 
with the oncologist the day after her MRI on Thursday, so hopefully they will 
have the results of Lily's MRI at the appointment and I will be able to let you 
all know the results soon after. 
The twins just turned 2 last Saturday and I couldn't help getting teary-eyed 
while watching Lily daintily pick at her cupcake and think what a miracle we 
have been graced with.  She's come a LONG way and she's a fighter! So why am I 
nervous about her scan?!?!?  I just can't wait for the day when I won't feel so 
anxious about her scans.  I guess it's just my nature to be a natural worry wart 
but your thoughts and prayers make these stressful scans more bearable and I 
truly believe she is doing well because of it! 
So thank you from the bottom of my heart!
