We are celebrating again today! I very briefly spoke with Andrew and his doctor reported that his tumors are continuing to shrink. The tumors in his liver are almost gone. They will continue on the same treatment path and will then re-evaluate after his next scan before round #7. We sing praises to God and thank everyone for their support and prayers. That is really all the information I received from Andrew - - so we will update again with more details.

Round #5

Hi Friends,

Andrew flew to Houston this morning and will start round #5 of chemo tomorrow. He had another full body PET scan today and will meet with his doctor to discuss the results tomorrow at 9am. I am fully expecting great results, aren't you? I will post something as soon as I hear the news.

As Andrew told me this morning, "Let's have huge, fun, exciting, productive weeks!". If Andrew can, you can too!

In case you were wondering....

Hi all,

In case you were wondering... those great Andrew tshirts and hoodies were custom made for Riley and Henry by my friend Jaida Kimmerer, who owns the Sparkle Parlor boutique in Seattle near Greenlake. She creates amazing one of kind jewelry, clothes and other gifts. She donated these darling baby clothes to us when she found out about Andrew, so I wanted to return the favor and ask you guys to check out her website sometime at www.sparkleparlor.com. Thanks Jaida!
