Tonight I'm going to start with a short post to tell you the main things that I think you all are wondering. First, Micah is doing great! He is back to normal... actually feeling better then we can remember him feeling in a long time. Looking back (and also learning what was really going on in his belly all that time) we now realize that he was having discomfort in his stomach pretty much all the time from the cyst putting so much pressure on his intestines. He has been like a new kid since healing from his surgery. He is eating great and is more active then ever. Although we went through a really hard month when it was all happening, we are so thankful that the problem was found and fixed and that Micah doesn't have to go through those stomach issues anymore!
And another great thing to report... Abbey just hit 1 year of being off treatment about a week ago!! Although relapse is rare, they told us that when it does happen it usually happens in the first year. It feels amazing to be past that first year off treatment and to see her doing so well :). This past year we have had to take her to clinic once a month for blood work and exam, and now that we are on year 2 off treatment we start going every other month. It will be nice to have a little more time between visits.
And lastly I wanted to end with a picture that I took a couple days ago of Jim and the kids. I am so blessed by these smiles everyday :). Aren't they getting so big? Don't think I could love them more if I tried!
