Calling all my prayer warrior friends and family! Please be praying for my Mom. She begins her weekly chemo regimin today. She is looking at a minimum of 6 months in this study. To give you an update, she was approved for a national research study that will provide her with the most up to date meds fighting Renal Carcinoma, as well as have weekly appointments with the team and the Oncologist. They are all very optimistic for this treatment to be successful and we are praying accordingly. With that said, the first "arm" of the study that chosen for her treatment is a combination of Intravaeous and pill chemo..

She will have her intravaeous chemo every other Thursday but will take the pill 5 DAYS a week.. On the Thursday that she is off IV, they will do scans and evaluations, continually checking progress. We are not sure how mom will react to the meds, however the oncologist says there are minimal side effects. Fatigue is the biggest complaint..

Thank you fo praying. Please pray for Mom to have the physical strength to stand strong during the next 6 months and for her body to respond to the medicine in a successful way. Thank you.

Matt's trip to the ENT

For some strange reason, she has always checked her daddy's ears
and his nose

but the mouth was new tonight!

She is the funniest little girl, and we love her so

and this

IS how I found my little one this morning when I opened up her door. I heard her talking from the monitor, so I looked to see if she was sitting up and it looked like she had her hat on, so I immediately went and got the camera.. She cracks me up!

Sarah Avery and her Nanna making a birthday cake for Jesus

So, my mom had her biopsy today of her pelvis. They deadened the area and went in with a long needle to extract from the bone. We are praying for a miracle. She is doing fine, she is taking some pain medicine and should be fairly sore for a couple of days. She meets with the oncologist on Feb 11th, so please of please be praying for all of us.

Thank you
