Quarterly Scans

Time to celebrate - the results are in from Evan's quarterly scans, the MRI, CT scan, and Bone scan.
Everything looks good!! :)

The bone scan was negative - there is a slight change in his pelvis due to the radiation he endured, but it's stable now and we'll keep watching it with each scan. The CT was clear and the MRI was stable with no change. What's left of Evan's tumor remains in his bladder, kind of spread out at the base of the bladder and along the prostate. As long as it's stable with no change than we can breathe a sigh of relief - and thanks.

Thank you to everyone who prays and sends positive energy to Evan - he looks wonderful and is just thriving! Evan will continue to have quarterly scans, every three months, for the next two years. But for now we concentrate on busy everyday life, back to work and school. Evan started preschool this week and really loves it. It's wonderful to see him doing normal everyday things and the excitment with which he does it. God is good and we are so very thankful.

Papa's Helper

Evan adores his Papa and he always wants to do whatever Papa is doing, especially if it involves tools. They've been buddies lately, doing puzzles, wrestling, reading books and just hanging out. I'm thankful for the time they get to spend together, and very grateful for my family's support. Ok ok...I adore Papa too! :)

Blowing Off Steam with a Party

Evan's cousin Katherine, had a birthday party and Evan had so much fun. He got to drive a go cart, ride a motorcycle game and he couldn't get enough of the bumper boats! If you click on the picture, you can see it better - check out his serious face as we are getting ready to take off in the go cart. So serious!
