Monthly Blood Draw

We took our little one up to the Children's Hospital for her monthly blood draw. The lab work done was testing her tumor marker, AFP or hormone put off by her tumor. We were pleased to see that her AFP went down again. This is a good sign. If the AFP was increasing then her tumor may be growing again. We are continuing to feel so blessed with her progress! I mentioned a while back that we took her to a photographer to get her pictures taken before her hair started growing back....I have those pictures back and absolutely love them. I thought it would be fun to show some of those darling pictures to everyone. Thanks to Wendy Carter - you did a great job, the pictures are beautiful!

I am so happy to know that her AFP is down. I can't believe how wonderful those pictures turned out. She looks like a blessing. Seriously... a blessing. Your family is an inspiration to all those who know you, getting to know you and feel like they know you. Thanks for sharing!

Hi- We're coming to Utah soon. I'd love a chance to meet you. I don't have your email, so I thought I'd leave a note here. My parents have all the baptism details or I'd be happy to send you an invite if you send me an e-mail. jjscrazydays (at) gmail (dot) com
