What a rollercoaster

Hello God Warriors, thanks for your words of encouragement, support, love and prayers, they mean so much to our family.  Keep them coming.  I sit here at home doing my normal household stuff and am thinking about the past 5 1/2 years.  What a rollercoaster ride it has been. 

April 30, 2010 was the first time in my life I experienced physical heartache and devastating despair.  At that time with Avery's mis-diagnosis of DIPG we were told that she had no chance of survival and that we had about 3-6 months left with our precious little girl.  Here we are in 2016, Avery completed chemotherapy in August, she is getting stronger, she is doing well in school, she is happy, and she is literally the sweetest little girl I have ever known.  Last week I received the best news ever...NED and Avery was to get her port out and this chapter of the book would be closed.  To get that phone call and have that taken away from me in a few hours was horrific.  We did not get BAD news Thank God. Avery's response to not getting her port out was, "poopy."  We all agreed with her, it was poopy.  Our doctor is NOT convinced it is a recurrence, in fact, he is 70% sure it is NOT.  We have beaten better odds than that before!   This could simply be a difference of "slice" levels from one MRI to the next or possible scar tissue that has developed.  I am trying to remain strong and fearless.  Everyday I read daily messages from a few books called "Jesus Calling, 50 Days of Hope, and Our Daily Bread."  I have to stay focused on faith and hope.  I just wish we did not have this hanging over our heads and hearts right now.  Only God knows the future, I know that.

March 8th Avery has her next MRI at St. Jude.  I cannot think about that right now but I wanted to let you know the date.  I am praying that this MRI shows that Avery is in fact NED.  I am praying that Avery remains NED.  I am praying for calm, peace, and joy everyday for us.  Please pray along with me God Warriors. 

Thanks, Jenn

Go Team BrAvery!

Dear Lord in heaven I join my prayers with Jenn and believe in the power in Your name. I am trusting in You and would not bother praying if I did not believe. I am asking for Your touch and healing hand in the matter of any and all illnesses within this child and ask for complete and instant healing for her body. Do it in behalf of the 2 or three gathered in Your name asking and believing this thing we have asked for to be delivered in the wonderful powerful name of Your son, Jesus Christ. AMEN!!! and AMEN!!! Also asking for rest for the parents weary hearts too Lord. Make it so in the name of Jesus. AMEN!

Our faith remains strong. We know that it is by his hand that Avery has been healed. Jesus Christ is the master healer. I for one will thank him and praise him all the days of my life. I'm incredibly proud of my daughter and granddaughter. Love from Avery's thankful Papa, Tom
