Double Terrific Kids

This day will always be a reminder of Heavenly Father's tender mercies! This day was a day that Jonathan and I were looking forward to! A day that our little man got Terrific Kids! Only problem is that I got the times wrong and we missed the whole thing! Luckily Rhea had checked her email earlier in the morning to discover that Alex had been chosen to be Terrific Kid too! Britton was so happy to have Alex there that he was not even a little mad or disappointed when I got to his classroom to tell him how bad I felt.  I love both of these Terrific Kids so much!

Hawaiian Baby

Jonathan's Dr Appointment:(

I wish my post could be as happy as this little cutie!!

So we went to dr nicks office today after having Jonathan's 3 month mri check. We had to wait a whole week to get the results but I think we all knew what to expect since jonathans headaches had increased and his seisure activity had increased. Dr Nick confirmed what we had feared, the tumor had indeed grown and he would need a second surgery to determine the grade of this new growth and what his new treatment would be. This was a huge disappointment for obvious reasons and also since we had so much hope of it improving since Jonathan changed his who diet to fight the dumb tumor. Jonathan really gave it 100% but it was simply not enough. That's what sucks about these dumb tumors... You can give it 100% and it can simply leave you in a worse spot!! Such a bummer! 

So now we are working on a plan to find a surgeon and move on with on with our next treatment option. In many ways this all feels harder than when he was first diagnosed with a tumor. Then it was scary but I had lots of hope and had lots of denial (which help me get through a lot of it). For the past year, I have tried to keep everything as normal as possible for the sake of Jonathan, myself and the kids. I have come to realize that this denial is longer there. I have a sense of reality now and it stinks! The good thing about me is I have always been able to suppress my emotions and move on even in trying times. I will have to do this more than ever now especially for Jonathan. The show must go on. 

Happy Birthday Bryant!

I love this big boy!
