Less than 2 weeks

Its hard to believe that another 3 months have almost come and gone but here we are approaching our 3rd scan post radiation. Avery and I will fly out next weekend and meet Jeremy in Memphis for 3 long days of sedations and tests. She will have the normal MRI and LP done, along with vision assessments, therapy appointments, a hearing test, endocrine work up, and check ins with all of our Drs. I don't think we are as nervous about this one as we have been in the past...but come October we'll be wrecks for sure. We've been attempting to enjoy the summer, but this 100 degree heat really takes a toll on pregnant women and kids with cancer. My weight just keeps inching up with the thermometer and I'm pretty sure Emmett is going to come out 10 lbs. Avery has been really enjoying her pool time this summer and we are so grateful she can actually go swimming! She continues to attend Aquatic Therapy each week, as well as going to full day rehabilitation services 2 days a week. The rest of the week she spends bossing around her buddy Chance and chasing the dogs. Jeremy threw himself a birthday party this past weekend and as a result we got to spend some time with a bunch of friends we haven't seen in a while. It was great to catch up and pretend, even just a little that our lives are getting back on track, albeit a new one. We are looking forward to clear/stable scans and good reports from St Jude in 2 weeks and will post as soon as we have them. For those of you on Facebook, check out the St Jude Research Hospital Page and you'll see Avery is pictured with a dog. Don't want to brag but she had more "likes" after 2 hours than Bill Clinton's photo...apparently bald kids and dogs pull more "awe..." than former presidents! She is also on the St Jude website on the gift shop page. Both are adorable of course! Thank you to everyone for your continued prayers and support...keep those prayers coming as we approach this next set of scans. Jenn
