Scanxiety Week

It's hard to believe that its been 2 months already but it has.  Her MRI is scheduled for 7 am on Friday.  We hope to have results by sometime in the afternoon.  Again, results will be shared with our Neuro Oncology team at St Jude before any decisions are made so it will most likely be Tuesday before we post anything. 

It's crazy but on Saturday Avery will be turning "twee".  We have a big party planned at a bounce house place here in Shawnee and we plan to bounce the toddlers into oblivion...or at least into a really good nap for Saturday afternoon.  Mickey Mouse is the theme for the party and it was a decision made entirely by her.  I really thought she'd want a Rapunzel party or at least Strawberry Shortcake party but she opted for Mickey Mouse instead.  It's hard to believe that it's been a year since we celebrated our Hero turning 2.  She's come so far in the last 12 months...talking, standing better, communicating so well and trying so hard to be the terrible 2 yr old that we want her to be...

Turning 2 - Super Hero Party

This week, just shy of 3
We'll get some pictures out of the party this weekend.  And we'll get word out of the scans as quickly as we can.  Please pray for us this week as we once again are faced with these difficult decisions.  Please pray that God leads us through this time and gives us courage and strength to find the right path to continue on in this journey.  Please pray for all of our cancer family friends that are facing this same situation here in the next few weeks and are looking for the same positive outcome that we are with scans.  Most importantly, kiss those kids twice matter how crazy they drove you today. 



  1. Jenn, Jeremy and Avery- I pray for you every night. I pray for strength and peace and for a miracle. You have a beautiful, amazing daughter who is lucky to have you as parents. You do what is right in your heart and God will be with you.

  2. Just a hug from Madi and Meri to Miss Avery!

  3. Avery is on the banner at the PCC entrance this week. Thinking of you guys today.
